DADA continues to call out Councilors for misleading comment on the future of Preston Market.
Susanne Newton says there are no plans to move the market away from the current site. (see her twitter feed below) Those of us who objected to the Stage 1B and 1C redevelopment of Preston Market saw the plans, in the future staging document, for moving the market to the corner of the site into a building with apartments above.(evidence posted here: https://www.darebinada.org/campaigns/preston-market-update-21st-of-may-2020)
It is a lie to say that there are no plans and misleading to confuse the whole site with the current site.
If Susanne Newton really wanted to save the market she would have voted for council support of the community led heritage application. She would also have voted for the suggested amendments for tighter planning controls at the general council meeting on May the 18th. Instead she voted to keep options open including the option to demolish and rebuild the market on the corner of the site.
