Say NO to Dan Murphy's, Junction Square Wodonga
We call on both Development Victoria and Wodonga Council to withdraw its consent for the Dan Murphy’s planning application located at the Junction Place development in Wodonga. This request is in response to community concerns regarding the pending Planning Application 73/2021.
Why is this important?
The residents and ratepayers of Wodonga Council draw to the attention of the Council, Planning Application 73/2021 for a Dan Murphy’s Bottle Shop on the corner of Elgin Boulevard and Smythe Street Wodonga.
We therefore request that in response to community concerns that Council requests Development Victoria withdraw its consent for the Dan Murphy’s planning application located at the Junction Place development in Wodonga.
If unsuccessful, we call on Wodonga Council to reject the planning application on the grounds that it undermines the strategic planning intent and community support for creating a City Heart in Wodonga’s CBA.
Wodonga is in a unique position of being able to recreate the heart of its city centre. We need to ensure that this development reflects the values of community now and for future generations.
A business such as Dan Murphy’s does not reflect the values of the community in wanting to create a space for families to connect and enjoy all that our community is building.
The community supports a city heart that creates a sense of belonging and inclusiveness. One that is safe and welcoming for all ages, one that brings people together.
The contact person for this petition is Bobbi McKibbin of 2 Hallawell Cres Wodonga.
