Boroondara Councillors: Kew
Cottages Survey Questions.
On 23rd August 2004 the Executive Director of
Heritage Victoria recommended that Kew Cottages be added to the Victorian
Heritage Register. Do you support the Heritage Victoria recommendation?
At the meeting of the Boroondara Urban
Planning Special Committee held on 4th August 2003, did you vote for or
against the amendment that the City of Boroondara advise the State Government
it was inappropriate to sell the KRS site for redevelopment?
Have you had cause to reconsider your
position on Kew Cottages since August 2003?
Would you support a new motion to oppose
the sale of the Kew Cottages land and keep the site in public ownership?
Would you support a motion to redevelop
land on the KRS site as parkland linking into the adjacent Yarra Bend National
What public facilities if any should be provided on the KRS
site as part of its redevelopment?
Should the State Government succeed in
selling the land to commercial developers what is the minimum percentage
of publicly owned and accessible green open space that should be provided
as part of the development (excluding roads and footpaths)?
Given that Kew Cottages has been part
of the community since 1887, to what extent do you believe it is the role
of Boroondara councillors to engage in debate on the issue of how best
to house and support the intellectually disabled residents currently living
at Kew Cottages?
As at December 2003 there were 3155 intellectually
disabled people in Victoria waiting for supported full-time accommodation.
How will you ensure the needs of intellectually disabled people remain
a priority in the redevelopment of Kew Cottages?
