Rally to save Coburg parklands

Filed under: Coburg,events,gardens,notices,politics,urban planning — Kath @ 4:57 pm

The Merri and Edgar’s Creek Parkland Group is holding a public rally next Tuesday 13 February, to stop the sale of public parkland in Coburg into private hands. It’s on the steps of Parliament, so those working in town could perhaps take an early lunchbreak. The MECPG says:

Council has been responsible for maintaining and improving this land, including tree planning. Moreland ratepayers should not have to buy the land to save it for open space – why should the public pay for what they already own?

There are other reasons for preserving the parklands as public property: environmental, social and aesthetic. Details about the rally are here. More from The Greens.
