Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
Protect Spring Creek from urban development
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the threat to the Spring Creek valley, one kilometre west of Duffields Road, Torquay, from urban development. This threat has been ongoing since at least 2008 and puts at risk our tourism-based economy, the green break between Torquay and Bellbrae and the long-established coastal lifestyle, culture and sense of place. Further, it threatens critically endangered and threatened species such as the Bellarine Yellow Gum.
We call on the Premier of Victoria, the Hon Daniel Andrews and the Minister for Planning, the Hon Richard Wynne to fulfil their promise during the 2018 election campaign that Spring Creek would not be developed west of Duffields Road.
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to follow through with election promises and further protect Spring Creek valley in perpetuity through legislation that informs the Surf Coast Distinctive Area and Landscape process by appropriate rezoning of the land and securing Torquay’s western boundary at Duffields Road as a hard town boundary.
