Yarra & Stonnington Councils issue court proceedings against extended clearways

03 March 2010

Yarra City Council yesterday joined the City of Stonnington in lodging judicial review proceedings in the Supreme Court to review various decisions made by VicRoads and the Minister for Roads and Ports regarding extended clearways.

The Council resolved a fortnight ago to challenge the validity of the process to extend clearways, continuing its two-year opposition to the extension of clearways in Yarra’s shopping strips.

Yarra Mayor Cr Jane Garrett said the Council had taken this step as a result of concerns about the impact of extended clearways on local traders and local amenity.

“Yarra Council has argued consistently and strongly against extended clearways, and will now present those arguments in court,” Cr Garrett said.
