Overwhelming community action has convinced the Banyule City Council to cancel the proposed cuts to their funding of the Darebin Parklands. Council received over 100 responses against the proposal – an amazing effort given the short notice.

The motion re the cuts was debated at Council on October 30. The gallery was packed with opponents to the proposals. The Mayor noticed that it was the largest response he has witnessed.

In response to community feeling, Council amended the original to allow funding to continue to 2025.
