* Beaumaris Conservation Society Inc. has informed Bayside Council that it opposes the C28 proposal. A representative of BCS Inc. addressed Council at its General Committee meeting at 7 p.m. on Monday 16th December 2002. That meeting resolved to abandon the proposal.
* Leaflet urging abandonment of Bayside Council’s proposed Amendment C28, distributed by campaigners from northern areas of the City of Bayside.
* It should be of concern that the major areas of public open space, which are already dedicated to sporting uses, should be further affected by the visual impact of the signs that would have been enabled by the C28 change. The C28 statement lists the following Beaumauris (sic) reserves as some of Bayside’s reserves for which Planning Permits for “sponsored” signs could be granted: 
   
  • Balcombe Park Reserve
  • Banksia Reserve
  • Beaumaris Reserve (the formal title of the Community Centre Reserve, which is already facing major impact from the proposed enlarged Library)
  • Yott Reserve (including the Bodley Street Tennis Centre)
 Under the heading “Environmental Effects” the C28 statement declares: 

“The amendment should have no significant effect on the environment. These types of sign would be discretionary, requiring submission of a planning application for Council assessment. It will allow for the adequate and effective display of signs.”
