Lost VCAT appeal
4th August 2018
Public land at 67 and 115 Trawalla Avenue, Thomastown had illegal buildings erected on it and Whittlesea Council had given a retrospective permit for them. On behalf of FoMC, Dr Stephen Rowley opposed removal of the reserve status of this land at VCAT, arguing that it could set a precedent for the subdivision and sale of other land adjacent to Merri Creek. However, VCAT decided otherwise.
