Petition to John Gowing (Mobile friendly) [vc_row][vc_column] Letter to petition Mr John Gowing, Managing Director of Gowing Brothers Pty Ltd, to withdraw development application 0824/16DA Show Show the Letter Hide the Letter Dear Mr Gowing, I petition you today as a citizen concerned for Moonee Beach and how your recent development application proposing a 24-hour service centre and fast food outlet adversely affects its future. I do not believe the proposal meets the needs of the community. I do not believe the proposal can be considered a socially or environmentally responsible development. I do not believe the proposal meets the objectives or the spirit of Local Centre zoning. I do not believe the proposal is congruent with your pro-environment stance as evidenced by your Gowings Whale Trust and your financial commitment to Sea Shepherd. I do not oppose all development — indeed, I welcome the opportunity to join with the rest of the Moonee Beach community to discuss development opportunities and outcomes with you in a community forum. However, I do not believe that the nature of this development, being so close to the protected Moonee Estuary and Solitary Islands Marine Park, adjacent to an existing childcare centre, and on the only road in and out of Moonee can be seen as proposal that has the needs of the community in mind. For these reasons, I ask you to withdraw the current development application in the interests of social and environmental responsibility and community goodwill. Please enter you name, email and suburb details below, and tick the check box in the red section below. Then click the Submit button. Thanks for your support.First name* Last name* Email address Suburb* Mr Gowing, please withdraw development application 0824/16DA.* I call on John Gowing, Managing Director of Gowing Brothers Pty Ltd, to withdraw development application 0824/16DA in the interests of social and environmental responsibility and community goodwill.
