West End residents protesting at the Mollison St site

West End community groups and Greens councillor Jonathon Sri will blockade the West Village development at the old Peter’s Ice Cream factory on Mollison and Boundary Street West End, starting today Wednesday 23rd November. The blockade protests the decision of the deputy premier, Jackie Trad, to allow the developers to build 20 storey towers over 80% of the site in clear contravention of the neighbourhood plan. Councillor Sri notes that the densification of the inner city is an important step in building sustainable cities but requires community scale development accompanied by sustainable infrastructure.
