Save Macquarie Ice Rink Campaign Update

Share this article

Dear members

Yesterday was the first of three planned community consultations AMP
will hold at the Macquarie Centre.

The next community consultations will be:

Monday, 21 Jan    11 am – 2 pm
Thursday, 24 Jan    5 pm – 8 pm

The location of the next session held on Monday was changed
to level 3, close to the Boost Juice store. It might change
again. If you get there and find it has changed again, please let us
know and we will update the page.

Please could we have as many people as possible attend one or both of
the remaining sessions.

When you go, a couple of points to note:

1. Speak directly to an AMP representative:

Try to ensure that you speak directly to an AMP representative.  They
can be identified by name tags.

AMP have employed a consulting company (Elton Consulting), and so many
Elton consulting people are crawling around pretending to be
interested in hearing our comments and handing out forms, on which to
write comments.

The rink has talked to the Elton Consulting reps, asking what will
happen with the comments we give verbally or in writing  on their
handed-out forms; Answer: “We [Elton consulting] will log them into
our system and then distil the main sentiment from the comments.”

In other words, if you speak to an Elton Consulting rep, your comments
will not reach AMP.

If you write on the forms at one of the 3 above mentioned community
consultations at Macquarie, then before you hand the form in, take a
photo of your form and at home write it out on computer and send it to
AMP directly, otherwise your points will only be heard as part of a
summarised overview.

2. Write directly to AMP:

The development application to the council is halted at the moment.
The rink has advised us that submissions to the council are therefore
NOT effective yet, as the council cannot make any decisions about a
halted application.  Instead, right now we need to write directly to
AMP and let them hear our concerns. AMP are the only ones who can
actually change the plans.

It doesn’t need to be long, it doesn’t need to be perfect grammar or
perfect English. We just have to be MANY, who are writing.

Thank you everyone for your support.
