Happy New Year to all, hope it was a good break.
We have been doing some work over the holiday period and have come up with some concepts that better reflect the views we have been hearing from the community.
Community Concepts -
Concept 4 Preservation - with no housing and the Shared path/Biolink
Concept 5 ‘Low Impact Housing’ - with the Shared Path/Biolink and small pockets of single storey, small foot print affordable houses for first home buyers and people to down size to.
Both the concepts have been attached.
Fund Raising – Thank you to all the people who generously donated money for the cause at the Open Day. It was what enabled us to advertise the issues we were concerned about for the Community workshops. However that used up all the funds we had and so we need to fund raise again, to continue the fight till we get a good outcome for the community.
There are two ways that tax deductable donations can be made for the cause (and with both please stipulate that it is for the ‘Save the HFR campaign’):
1. Cheques can be sent to: The Blackburn & District Environment Protection Fund, PO Box 210, Blackburn VIC 3130.
2. Donations can be made on-line via GiveNow.com.au. The direct link to the fund is: http://www.givenow.com.au/cause1518
Donors must tick the 'Special Message' box and stipulate that their donation be used for the HFR campaign. Donors will receive a receipt by email with this method.
All donations are tax-deductible via either option.
