City Of Melbourne submission on Linking Melbourne Authority’s East West Link (Eastern Section) Comprehensive Impact Statement (CIS) pdf - 443 pages, 10 December 2013. Presenter: David Mayes, Manager Strategic Planning

[edit] Purpose and background

  • 1. The purpose of the report is to seek endorsement of the City of Melbourne’s response to the Linking Melbourne Authority’s East West Link (Eastern Section) Comprehensive Impact Statement (CIS) for submission to the East West Link (Eastern Section) Project Assessment Committee.
  • 2. The Minister for Planning appointed an Assessment Committee to assess the CIS, review and hear public submissions, and advise him on granting the project approvals. He has issued Terms of Reference (refer to Attachment 2) for their assessment of the CIS and the submissions responding to it. Linking Melbourne Authority (LMA) released the CIS for exhibition from 31 October 2013 to 12 December 2013.
  • 3. The Assessment Committee will hold a directions hearing on 14 January 2014 to clarify procedural and preliminary matters for its full public hearings in March-April 2014. They will provide advice to the Minister for Planning to assist his determination of the planning approval for the project in mid-2014.

Key issues

  • 4. The City of Melbourne’s submission (the Submission) is at Attachment 3 with a summary at Attachment 4. It responds to LMA’s CIS based on Council’s policies and informed by comments the City of Melbourne has received about the East West Link. It is structured to align with the Assessment Committee’s Terms of Reference. The Submission provides a comprehensive response to the CIS. Its key points are:
  • 4.1. The CIS underestimates the adverse impacts of the Part B CityLink-Port of Melbourne viaduct on the Arden-Macaulay urban renewal area and Moonee Ponds Creek open space corridor and does not make a compelling case for its necessity. The submission proposes an alternative that will meet the transport function in this part with substantially less viaduct and land reservation.
  • 4.2. The CIS underestimates the impact of the alienation of parkland in Royal Park and on dwellings in West Parkville from the Royal Park western portal. The submission proposes alternatives to the portal’s design to significantly reduce these impacts and to factor in the alternative Part B design.
  • 4.3. The CIS underestimates the alienation of parkland in Royal Park from the Elliot Avenue Portal. The submission proposes alternatives to the portal’s design to significantly reduce its impacts.
  • 4.4. The CIS does not adequately address the temporary and permanent impact on sporting activity, recreation, irrigation water storage and open space including the anticipated future demand. Therefore the project must include a concrete plan and commitment to meeting this need. Recommendation from management
  • 5. That the Future Melbourne Committee endorses the City of Melbourne’s response to the Linking Melbourne Authority’s East West Link (Eastern Section) Comprehensive Impact Statement (Attachment 3) for submission to the East West Link (Eastern Section) Project Assessment Committee and authorises the Director City Planning and Infrastructure to make any further minor editorial changes to the response prior to its submission.

[edit] Flemington Association

The Flemington Association is assisting residents to prepare a response to the Government's Comprehensive Impact Statement - CIS - for the East West Link. For more information regarding the CIS please refer to our Background page

The Flemington Association has commenced releasing draft sections of our response to the Comprehensive Impact Statement (CIS) on our EWL web site. Each of these will form part of our consolidated submission. Each sections has been drafted by separate member(s) and may well have individual styles and focus differentials. However we feel this is a strength as it demonstrates the representation diversity of our submission. We have also commenced reporting links to other organisations draft submissions - such as the Melbourne City Council, Darebin Council.

Over the next week we will progressively post sections and you are welcome to comment. provide suggestions etc.
