Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
Fund purchase of Peter McCann Memorial Grove
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that the Peter McCann Memorial Grove in Geelong has been used and enjoyed by the public for more than 20 years and is considered to be part of the Fyansford Common. To many people’s dismay, it was recently discovered that the Grove is in fact privately owned land and is now for sale.

The land itself has some 80 mature trees and shrubs and includes an area that has been used as a carpark. The carpark provides access to the public toilets on the Fyansford Common and to a track down to the river in the Fyansford Common. The land for sale has been fenced off thus effectively blocking access to the public toilets and a rotunda. This land should be secured for the public.
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to provide funding to the City of Greater Geelong to purchase the Peter McCann Memorial Grove, Geelong and to make the land a permanent part of the Fyansford Common, including the development of a carpark and a road to the river.
