A massive LED billboard is now up on Latrobe Tce and a second LED billboard is approved for Given Tce. LED Billboards are a distraction to both pedestrians and motorists, yet their locations are at known high-risk areas. They are entirely at odds with the unique character of the Paddington precinct.
Our community was not consulted. Our local and state government planning laws are failing us. They are stacked in favour of the profits of private interests, not the wishes or the safety of our communities, who are most impacted.
We are powerful and our community is already effecting change. Our vocal opposition has already secured a review of all electronic billboard approvals across the city. Let’s get these billboards removed: We can ramp up pressure to ensure our planning laws are changed to protect and respect us.
Join us for an online forum with community members, local advocates, Councillor Jonathan Sri, and Greens MP for Maiwar, Michael Berkman. We will discuss concerns raised by local residents, provide answers on how they were allowed to be constructed, and facilitate community action regarding where to go from here.
