KEILOR AIRCRAFT NOISE MONITOR EMU60

OCTOBER 2016

This noise monitor has been relocated into East Keilor and out of Brimbank which is the municipality with the most noise complaints regarding aircraft.  Our former President has written this article below about the removal from Keilor

This new website gives detailed information on all of Victorias 79 Councils.  It allows comparisons between councils on a large range of metrics.  The link is below.

AIRCRAFT NOISE AT TULLAMARINE

MAY  2016

FORMER CALDER RISE SCHOOL SITE, GREEN GULLY RD

Brimbank Council had the opportunity to buy this site at a discount to market value, but declined as Council felt Keilor had sufficient community open space.  This site will now be rezoned with a development plan overlay, which in effect cuts out third party objectors.  All that is left now is to lobby for the site to be zoned neighbourhood instead of the proposed general residential zoning.  Submissons are now closed.

JULY  2015

BCC is yet to make a decision on the future use of the former Keilor Library building now empty. The Community Committee of 7 held their first meeting on 10th May.  There will be 3 meetings, the last in June.  Our members who applied were excluded.  This building must be used for the benefit of Keilor and District residents.  This Committee is to advise on possible future uses.  The 11 Councillors will have the final say voting on this important local matter.  KRRA intend to monitor progress closely.

JUNE  2017

FORMER KEILOR VILLAGE LIBRARY

Our Mayor, Cr John Hedditch, Deputy Mayor and four other Councillors officially opened the Keilor Village upgrade on 11 May.  It has taken a bit longer than planned but the resultant work is a huge improvement, in particular the sloping pavement.  KRRA will continue to lobby councillors for a second public toilet to replace the demolished toilet in front of the Keilor sports ground.

COMMUNITY SAFETY FORUM HELD IN KEILOR

On 19th Oct Council organised a safety forum, for which we thank the Council and Victoria Police for arranging.  About 30 members of the public attended, our senior local Police, Councillors and senior Council officers.  Police presented the latest crime data which is heading down in Brimbank and did a presentation on how best to secure the home.  Many of the questions related to family violence which may come as a surprise, but the reality is that in our area 50% of call outs are domestic dispute related

The Keilor Transport Forum held on Wednesday Nov 22nd went off really well, the attendance of nearly 60 people just shows how much people care about their village.  We now await the investigations and analysis from Vic Rds and our Council, (more to come)
