At the Victorian 2010 State election the Liberal Opposition spruiker for planning Matthew Guy made a signed commitment to create what was called an Urban Interface Zone UIZ. His party was then elected and while he was Planning Minister from 2010 to 2014 he sat on his hand and failed to honor his promise to create an Urban Interface Zone between farming land and residential land. Now in 2018 this deceiver wants to become Premier of Victoria.
The UIZ would have allowed the bush camp to reduce the number of neighbors from 15 down to a handful and thus allow better management of the property. It would finally have allowed a solution ( not the ideal solution ) to an ongoing legal dispute with the MMBW now Yarra Valley Water about a nasty 150 metre long sewerage pipe they installed on the property without notification, consent, compensation or even obtaining an easement. This area where the nasty sewerage pipe was installed has been zoned as green wedge for decades and designated as environmentally significant. I am on septic tank on my farm house and I can't even use the sewerage pipe.
The creation of the Urban Interface Zone would have cost Victorian taxpayers nothing and have lead to hundreds of millions, perhaps billions of dollars in economic activity. It is easy to identify who the beneficiaries of Matthew Guy's deception are : Land Banker and Property Developer mates of his. The losers are just as easy to identify : hundreds, perhaps, thousands of Victorian farming families. The farmers might not even know they have been victims of this deception.
I am in the process of commencing a class action against Matthew Guy for substantial damages. Because the circumstances apply to many others I am looking for them to join me in this class action. There is also a Facebook page for Urban Interface Zone victims as well as a petition in relation to the deception.
