I’ve been away for a week and so I thought I’d better give everyone a quick update.
As I mentioned in my last update – the Botanica submission went in and seemed to be well received. Since then there have been a number of other submissions.
Probably the most interesting was one recommending that the station is located nearer the city, on the eastern side of St Kilda Rd near the Shrine. This would be MUCH better for us but my reading of the tea-leaves is that this is unlikely – possible but unlikely.
It is worth remembering something that our barrister told me several times, all submissions are based on their merit – it does not matter if it is mentioned once or a hundred times, once is enough. So it will be considered and we do not need to say anything additional.
At the AGM I mentioned that one of the key documents is something called the EPR’s. These form the basis of the contract with the tunneling companies and so are fundamental. A new version was released on Monday and the panel has asked for feedback. We will be submitting feedback if our domain experts deem it necessary. You will see that one of our experts (Terry Bellair) has already had a lot of his comments added to the document. You can see the full document if you click on the link below
