Hearing of objections to MMBW (Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works) regional proposals

Crow, Maurie (1972) Hearing of objections to MMBW (Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works) regional proposals. unpublished. (Unpublished)


To avoid any misunderstanding, it should be mentioned at the outset that as far as the broad physical outline of growth patterns are concerned there is absolutely no difference between one version of an alternative regional plan for Melbourne proposed by the Town and Country Planning Association and which it has called the "Berwick Warragul" corridor and the alternative which we have called the "Gippsland" corridor. Indeed, if this were all that there was to it, we could possibly say, to save time: We rest our case on that of the Town and Country Planning Association", and leave it at that. However, there are some differences, even in the physical alternatives proposed. And in any case, the broad physical outline of the growth pattern is not the only factor. Moreover the reasons for adopting such a radically different system as against the more conventional and seemingly logical pattern proposed by the Board have to be really good reasons, because neither the Board nor the government can lightly make such a momentous change in decision. Whilst we fully agree with the reasons advanced by the Association, (all of which, in the interests of time we will not repeat here), we have certain other reasons on which we will concentrate. These are either additional or differently emphasised, and we believe them to be even stronger reasons than those advanced by the Association.
