Who To Contact
Below are contact details for decision-makers, as well as some key points you may wish to bring up regarding the Hosken Reserve project. It is better to focus on the points that most impact or concern you personally.
Why won't you be able to use or enjoy your local park if two more soccer pitches are added to the space? Are you concerned about the manner in which council has rushed through this NPL 'double-header' facility, without proper consultation or transparency? Whether you live in Coburg North, or elsewhere in Moreland, we all have a stake in community recreation spaces and fair, transparent government processes.
It is best to address each email / letter to one decision-maker, rather than several (don't CC). Please be persistent. If you don’t receive a response within a reasonable time frame, follow up and escalate your request. Request more information or action. Complaints can be escalated to https://www.ombudsman.vic.gov.au/
Write to the below councillors to express your concerns about the draft plan for Hosken Reserve which adds two new soccer pitches and leaves very little space informal recreation space for surrounding residents to exercise on weeknights and weekends. Councillors will vote on a new plan October 13 but need to hear from you ASAP!
