    1. PETITIONS

    1.1 PETITION - CHELSWORTH PARK AND IVANHOE GRAMMAR PROPOSED LEASE

    Ms Robyn Roberts and Mr Kevin Biaggini spoke on the item. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY An online petition with 70 entries has been received regarding the Chelsworth Park Lease to Ivanhoe Grammar School. The petition prayer is as follows: Protect Chelsworth Park, Ivanhoe for future generations - Say NO to 30 years of LEASE and CONTROL to a private business with no options for increased PUBLIC USE over that period. Council gave public notice on 4 August 2014 advertising the proposed lease. The consideration of submissions and proposed lease is due to be considered by Council in October. Currently the petition does not meet Councils Petitions and Joint letter guidelines. The guidelines do not allow for e-mail petitions and require addresses and signatures. The petition has no addresses or signatures. The current guidelines are currently being reviewed to consider on-line petitions. Council will need to determine whether it will accept the petition.

    Resolution (CO2014/291)

    That Council notes the petition and that the petition does not meet Council guidelines.
