Maroondah Community Cabinet

By June 6, 2005No Comments

Today as part of the Maroondah Community Cabinet, the Ringwood Transit City Community Coalition (RTCCC) met Peter Batchelor (Minister for Transport) and Rob Hulls (Minister for Planning).

The animosity displayed by Peter Batchelor was unconstructive and as such Peter Batchelor failed to understand the need for immediate transport improvements within Ringwood and Maroondah.

The response from Rob Hulls in regard to the topics of Community Participation, Planning and Accessibility were more positive. Rob Hulls recognised the need for accessibility improvements within Ringwood including current building access and pedestrian facilities.

It is crucial that the State Government provide the leadership and funding necessary to ensure the positive revitalisation of Ringwood. Unfortunately hostile responses from non performing do not demonstrate confidence in the State Government’s current abilities.
