WINDSOR DOG-OWNER Jen Schroeder, with Audrey, Charlie and Maggie, welcomes news that the state government has committed $20,000 towards a fenced dog park in Stonnington. The council is considering creating a dedicated dog park and agility course at Windsor Siding Reserve, a hidden pocket off Union Street, near Windsor station, so pooches – especially puppies – can exercise safely.

alvern East Group started in 2005 in response to a demonstrated need in the community to know how to oppose clearly inappropriate planning proposals. The springboard for starting a group came from residents opposing a seven-storey building on the old Reg Hunt site in Dandenong Road and a three-storey student housing proposal on Darling Road. Both had widespread opposition, both had council support, both were well-represented at VCAT, both were lost. Not a blow has been struck on the Reg Hunt site since the then owners acquired a permit from VCAT some six years ago. MEG was born with the aim of preserving the leafy character and residential amenity of Malvern East. When our help is sought, we advise MEG members and assist with preparing objections to council and submissions to VCAT. MEG also writes submissions to council regarding amendments to the Local Planning Scheme and to state government regarding proposals to changes in the planning legislation such as the recent Planning Zone Reforms. We have also made submissions about the reform of VCAT that resulted in almost no reform. VCAT decisions still depend on “who you get’’. Stonnington is unique in that a large part of it is in inner Melbourne and a large part in the eastern district. This makes things difficult for staff and councillors, and MEG believes that despite this their combined efforts have ensured much of Stonnington’s heritage has been saved. Since the huge push

from the development industry in the nineties, some areas have suffered great losses of heritage, trees and character. High-rises in the Forrest Hill Precinct, the Como site in South Yarra and the concrete boxes surrounding Chapel Street are grotesque examples of this and are the result of pro-development policies of the then state government and VCAT decisions. We view with horror the “boxes”

now dotted throughout Stonnington’s suburbs, indicating developers’ complete disregard for existing neighbourhood character and their relentless pursuit of the greying of Stonnington. Parts of Stonnington are considered a developer’s picnic ground and this needs to be reined in. What we hope will be a great success is the MEG Forum for Council Candidates on October 17 at 7.30pm in the Malvern Town Hall.

PROFILE ANN REID What I love about Stonnington: I love the trees and streets with their diverse range of housing styles and wonderful gardens. What I want to change: I will continue to work to save the neighbourhood character that hasn’t been spoiled by the inappropriate development.

VOX POP DO YOU THINK STONNINGTON NEEDS A DEDICATED DOG PARK WITH AN AGILITY COURSE? KATHY BINGHAM, 63, Malvern East Yes, I do. There’s a lot of sport played in Central Park, and it’s sometimes difficult because you don’t want to interrupt the people playing sport.

GAY DUTTON, 55, Malvern East It’s a very good idea for dogs that tend to run off. I don’t think there are enough dedicated parks with fences in Stonnington.

MICHAEL DICKSON, 13, Camberwell Yes, because Central Park is a very commonly used ground, which is shared with people who play sports. There should be a place specifically for dogs, especially with a fenced area for training.

City property worth $57.8b BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@fairfaxmedia.com.au

PRIVATE property values across Stonnington have ranked third highest in Victoria, according to the latest figures from Valuer-General Victoria. From January 1, councils across the state valued more than 2.7 million residential, industrial, commercial and rural properties in their municipal lines, reaching a statewide figure of $1.39 trillion. With a total of $57.8 billion worth of private property, Stonnington ranked third behind Melbourne City and Boroondara, according to the government authority on statutory valuations. Meanwhile, median house prices in Armadale have risen by 20.4 per cent to $1.65 million since June this year, according to the Real Estate Institute of Victoria’s latest quarterly

report. Toorak property values rose 7.7 per cent to $3.216 million and those in Glen Iris climbed 4.8 per cent to $1.150 million. Malvern, East Malvern and South Yarra median prices all eased, with Prahran shedding 13.6 per cent to an average of $945,000. Hocking Stuart agent Andrew James was not surprised at the figures, and said buyers, particularly those with two incomes and no children, are being drawn to Prahran’s under-$1 million price range. Mr James said Hocking Stuart had recorded a 40 per cent hike in the Prahran property market and a clearance rate of 81 per cent since the close of the winter season. While Prahran was a “hot ticket” at the moment, Mr James cautioned buyers, saying the property market remained uncertain and buyers should still exercise diligence when researching an area.

20 years on High

CLASSIC: Valerie Stein in her High Street shop

ONE of Armadale’s most adored retailers is celebrating 20 years on High Street next month. Valerie Stein, who has been selling Art Deco and Art Nouveau items from her shop Fabrile, thanks the community for their support. ‘‘There is one lady in particular who has visited me every Saturday since I first began selling my pieces out of a glass cabinet back in 1992. She has not gone a week without a lay-by,’’ Mrs Stein said. Inside, the shop resembles a scene from a classic film, with French advertising posters, evening gowns, headpieces and jewellery from the 1940s and ’50s. While Mrs Stein’s journey has been one of success, High Street has had its share of casualties. “High Street is slowly saying goodbye to the antique stores ... nevertheless, we are still going strong and I am looking forward to another 20 years,’’ she said.

Natural playtime in top ten spot BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@fairfaxmedia.com.au

MALVERN Early Learning and Childcare Centre director Hayley Clift and her team are holding their heads high after finishing in the top ten of super fund HESTA’s national 2012 Early Childhood Education and Care awards. MELCCC’s Sustainable Principals Program has been groundbreaking in adopting natural materials into the lives of their children. Unlike the convenient and lowmaintenance synthetic and plastic play areas that are prominent in many childcare centres, the Armadale centre’s play area is a mix of wood, stone, pebble and bark. “In our area, and areas across the nation, there are growing numbers of children living in apartments and townhouses with limited access to

outdoor play areas and little exposure to natural elements,” Mrs Clift said. According to the centre director, the sustainability program helps to reawaken the children’s natural sense of adventure and curiosity. The centre was met with both praise and concerns from parents who questioned the safety of natural materials over synthetics. “Parents have been very supportive on the whole,’’ she said. ‘‘Through education, we have been able to address any scepticism and concerns about their child’s safety... Our approach ensures that future generations will have the opportunity to embrace and enjoy the natural world.” Composting, water conservation and growing herbs are also part of the program to encourage healthy eating and sustainable living.

OH DEER Owners of new Chapel Street bar Wolf and I are pleading to those responsible to return the head of one of their $15,000 deer statues. It was stolen about 10pm last Saturday. The two statues were made specifically for the one-monthold venue and shipped from Denmark this year. Venue owner Steve Powell said the statues were “very dear to the hearts of everyone who works here”. The venue is offering a $100 reward and a free dinner for four to anyone who can help retrieve the head. Police are investigating.

Sex fraudster sentenced

Open day to kick off fitness drive CHRIS HOPKINS

BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@fairfaxmedia.com.au

HAROLD Holt pool will hold its annual open day on October 20 to encourage locals to keep fit. “It is the perfect opportunity for residents who haven’t been inside the centre for a while to check out what’s new and maybe rediscover the joys of getting active and healthy,” said Stonnington council chief executive Warren Roberts. Free access to the indoor and outdoor pools, spas, sauna, health club, personal trainers and giant pool inflatables for kids are among facilities the public can enjoy. After a $13.3 million revamp in 2010, Harold Holt’s membership soared by 250 per cent. Last summer 122,537 people cooled off at the centre, up 12 per cent from the 10-year average. According to Stonnington council, 42,000 people visit the centre each month during summer and 38,000 during winter. Harold Holt

IN THE SWIM: Lifeguard Olivia Dalton and pool regulars Angus, 3, Christian, 4, and Sophie, 4 earns more than $2.9 million a year for the council. Lifeguards can hold their heads high, with not one serious incident

in the past 12 months. Mr Roberts, however, says families with young children can never be too careful. “As our pools get busier, we

encourage parents and other guardians to ensure young children are supervised at all times within the pool facilities,” he said.

Malvern East resident Steve Onnis has been sentenced to at least five years’ jail after pleading guilty to six counts of procuring sexual penetration by fraud and one count of attempting to procure sexual penetration by fraud. Between September and December last year, Onnis had sex with six women aged 16 to 20 after posing on housematefinding websites as a female owner of an escort agency. Under the alias Melanie Hawke, Onnis would contact the women and encourage them to expose themselves using webcams. Five of the women were then told to provide a free trial to determine their suitability for an escort job. Using the fake name ‘Scott’, Onnis then had sex with the women. County Court judge Mark Gamble said Onnis’ conduct was predatory. EDDIE MORTON

Rowers fear Yarra water pollution NAVIGATING the Yarra River is becoming more a labyrinth of plastic bottles, soft-drink cans and oil slicks than a picturesque riverbank, according to Power House Rowing Club secretary Caitlin Ripper. According to Ms Ripper, just dipping a bare foot in the water can lead to nasty infections and fear of even coming in contact with the water is widespread among Melbourne rowers. The Yarra Riverkeepers Association reports that raw human waste and vehicle chemicals washed into the river from the roads through stormwater drains as two of the worst elements affecting the river’s water quality. “It is no wonder I avoid coming in contact with the water at all costs. A few people who I have rowed with have become very sick from just falling into the water,” said Ms Ripper. While she commends the work of

Parks Victoria and its efforts to control the amount of litter and debris floating in the water, Ms Ripper said it was sometimes too unpleasant. Rubbish traps make for eyesores on daily rows, and on rainy days the amount of debris can rise tenfold, according to Ms Ripper. “While the traps catch a lot of the rubbish, when it rains, the storm water drains refill the river with more filth,” she said. Melbourne rowers’ calls to clean up the river have been acknowledged by the state government, which has pledged $1 billion. The government’s plan aims to reduce litter and debris by improving the management of Melbourne’s water network, increasing awareness and funding for local environmental groups, and improving water quality programs. Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith said: “A new focus of co-ordinated action across the community and agencies will help make the Yarra … even better in our world-class city.”

Seven gardens’ heavenly scent SEVEN heavenly gardens in Stonnington will open next weekend to help two worthy causes. Six properties in Malvern East and one in Glen Iris will swing open the gates on Saturday, October 27 from 10am to 4pm. The gardens include Nithsdale, Dunoon and Merridale. The others will be revealed on the day. The expansive hidden garden at Nithsdale has developed through several incarnations over 20 years, from the two trees and five camellias remaining from a garden planted in the 1940s. The highly groomed garden of Merridale features layers of plantings and hedges, designed for maximum shade in summer and sun in winter. Dunoon is a Rick Eckersley garden, designed and planted in the late 1990s. The garden retains a century-old elm and three beautiful liquidambars. Proceeds from St John’s of East

1921 and again in 1928. In the 1930s, Gilpin began building an even more magnificent mansion, Idylwylde, in Balwyn but he never lived there permanently. Idylwylde still stands, but Kia Ora and the

warehouse were destroyed by fire in the 1970s. From Just a Pocket for the Money:The Story of Oliver Gilpin and his Stores, by his granddaughter, Muriel Perry.

Name: Isis Breed: Bull Arab mix Sex: Female (desexed) Age: About five years This sweet canine has basic good manners, is loving and is keen to please. She is a strongg and active ked on-lead dog and should be walked twice a day. She is not suited to being off-lead in a dog park as she is easily distracted,, but is a enefit keen student and will benefi e from ongoing obedience ng a training. While displaying lovely temperament, Isiss is not suited to a family with small children as she iss large and may get in the way. All dogs at the Lost Dogs’ Home are $300, are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and come with one free obedience lesson. Please note Isis may have been adopted since we went to press. There are many more dogs like her in need of a home.

alvern’s blue-chip Finch Street was on the edge of suburbia early last century. In 1910, drapery chainstore king Oliver Gilpin built Kia Ora, bounded by Finch and Belson streets and Central Park Road. He also built a warehouse on his land and founded Malvern Heights Bowling Club at the property. The 16-room Edwardian mansion featured gargoyles and turrets, a ballroom and conservatory, a threetable billiard room (which became the headquarters of the billiard club he also formed) and three open-air bedrooms with louvred shutters. The spacious grounds included a tennis court, artificial lake, fernery and summer houses. In 1917, Gilpin ‘‘politely’’ asked his wife of 20 years to leave the family home. He remarried in

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ BACK TO BASICS For more than 150 years, the City of Stonnington has not been under the influence, let alone control, of any political party, but it is now unfortunate that grassroots government has become a battleground between the big, cashed-up political parties versus the independents. It is also disheartening to see a number of candidates for the coming election who do not wish to be contacted and thus want to “lay low”. How on earth are the residents of Stonnington supposed to identify who the real candidates are who live and work within the City of Stonnington and who have the best interests of their community at heart? It is also important that residents remember the different levels of responsibility attributed to the different levels of government (eg. public transport and tertiary education are state and federal responsibilities, not local

government). That is not to say that local councils cannot lobby for changes, but when party politics/ policies get in the way of good governance, what are we left with, more of the same? Steve Stefanopoulos / South Ward candidate

■ DEATH WITH DIGNITY Technology and the increased ability of medical science to prolong life has taken over. Many of us have watched helplessly the prolonged, painful and undignified deaths of people we care about and have no wish to experience this personally. But unfortunately we have the law, religious groups, politicians, those afraid of death, those lacking in compassion and imagination and those who enjoy having the power to enforce their convictions on others, to contend with. Gradually brave individuals have achieved change in other countries. Some politicians in Australia have tried to do the same but are

frustrated by those determined to deny people freedom of choice. More than 80 per cent of Australians support legislation giving people the right to choose when they end their lives and allowing others to help and support them without punishment and with adequate safeguards in place. Perhaps those opposed should realise they may need this in the future. I am 85 years old with increasing health problems and this is important to me. Noellene Ward / Albert Park

■ SHOP LOCAL It is an unfortunate trend that sees a rise in retail spending being conducted online. While the internet may be more convenient to consumers, it should not replace the traditional shopping. There is a social aspect to shopping that is non-existent in online spending and I think it is a shame that people prefer this more impersonal sphere. Alana Mitchelson/ via email

STONNINGTON REVIEW LOCAL 11


LOCAL ELECTION

Meet the candidates As Stonnington gets ready to go to the polls, we asked the candidates to tell us their priorities

SOUTH WARD

S

tonnington is one of only eight Victorian councils that requires voters to turn up to a polling booth on election day next weekend. The current council opted for attendance voting, instead of postal voting as in the past five elections, in the hope more voters will participate. The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) says voter participation is marginally higher in attendance polls than postal voting. Voter participation in the past three Stonnington council elections was about 65 per cent, one of the lowest in metropolitan Melbourne. Only Port Phillip, Melbourne and Yarra City were lower. A spokesman for the Victorian Electoral Commission, which runs and funds council and state elections, said an attendance poll cost slightly more than postal voting. ‘‘Some councils prefer it for traditional reasons and we’re happy to provide the service,’’ he said. Once voting booths close at 6pm, manual counting will start immediately at each centre. Counting will resume at noon on the Saturday, this time by computer at VEC headquarters. Results should be known by the evening of Sunday, October 28, unless there is a recount. The Stonnington election office is at Malvern Town Hall, coner of Glenferrie Road and High Street, and is open to the public and candidates from 9am to 5pm on weekdays until election day. Returning officer is Ed Stewart; call 9804 3105 Further details: vec.vic.gov.au. As residents consider their votes we asked all the candidates what they thought was the most pressing issue facing Stonnington and what they would do about it if elected.

JAKE FOSTER

LIVES IN: Armadale POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? The whole nature of our city is being changed by the rapid development of multistorey buildings. It affects our heritage, amenity and open spaces. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Changes need to be made at VCAT so that council has more control over planning. It is imperative residents are aware of potential changes rather than reacting only when something happens to them next door.

LIVES IN: Prahran POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING THE COMMUNITY OF STONNINGTON TODAY? Resident and council powers continue to be diminished by VCAT decisions that ignore our planning policies, neighbourhood character, infrastructure limitations and objections. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Council must continue to pursue mandatory height limits and ensure development zones proposed by the government continue to ensure residents have objection and appeal rights.

LIVES IN: Windsor POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? I feel the greatest concern is the increasing number of criminal offences occurring in our neighbourhood. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Council has a responsibility to ensure our streets are safe by promoting a greater police presence. Install CCTV cameras in council parking allotments and promote or encourage store owners to do the same in front of their businesses to deter robberies, graffiti and property damage.

LIVES IN: Malvern POLITICAL AFFILIATION: None WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? I think that a major issue facing Stonnington is the loss of community voice. It seems from so many different angles, people are having less say in their own community. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Councillors need to better represent the residents of Stonnington.

LIVES IN: Prahran POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Greens WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? Increasing population and changing travel habits are placing pressure all forms of transport. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Advocate directly to state and federal governments for better public transport. Invest in bike lanes on Chapel Street, peak-hour bike lanes on thoroughfares such as High Street and Williams Road, and bike parking at our shopping strips. We need to make sure our community is pedestrian friendly and accessible for all.

LIVES IN: South Yarra POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Greens WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? With increased traffic congestion and high-density living, public spaces in Stonnington are at risk of becoming unattractive and, for many, difficult to access. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Our parks and shop strips need to be safe, sustainable and attractive. I would like to see council commit to improving pedestrian and bike access to shopping strips by providing high-quality bike lanes and parking areas, as well as upgrading the pedestrian areas of the shopping strips themselves.

LIVES IN: Armadale POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? The lack of clearly defined, acceptable rules and regulations in the planning system and the lack of long-term strategies across all council services. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Council should anticipate where future developments might occur and consult the community to develop clear guidelines on density, height and types of developments. Strategic planning is key to ensuring the future needs of residents are met.

LIVES IN: Ratepayer in South Ward POLITICAL AFFILIATION: None WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? The pressing issue is overdevelopment, which causes increased traffic and parking in local streets and puts strain on infrastructure. I believe the possible sale and redevelopment of Swinburne’s Prahran campus would be very bad. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Council must request more time for the public to understand the detail of the changes and to make further submissions, and work with the university in a bid to keep Swinburne open.

LIVES IN: East Malvern POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Greens WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? IMHO, the most pressing issue facing Stonnington is the same issue facing every other community – human-induced climate change. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? If elected, I, and my Greens colleagues, will establish a Stonnington energy foundation to facilitate the transformation of Stonnington into a carbonneutral, green city; put residents and businesses in contact with solar companies offering large discounts for bulk purchasing; and place solar and mini-wind turbine systems on council properties.

LIVES IN: Malvern East POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Liberal Party member (but not endorsed or supported by party) WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? Steady population is creating greater road congestion, straining public transport capacity, reducing areas set aside for recreation, reducing liveability and leading to loss of heritage buildings. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Oppose excessive developments that will overwhelm Stonnington if left to proceed unchallenged, maintain and enhance where possible parks and other recreational space, and lobby for greater spending on infrastructure.

LIVES IN: Malvern East POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? All residents are affected by rate rises, planning issues, provision and maintenance of infrastructure and the range of services provided by council. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? I propose the establishment of a community forum to advise and seek comments from residents, so our decisions are based on this input; engaging with the community through regular ward meetings to improve Stonnington’s infrastructure; and implementing effective and appropriate local planning.

LIVES IN: Malvern POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? To pick one thing in our community that rises above all others is very difficult, but as a mother of four, access to, or lack of access to, public childcare and public education are great concerns. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? There should be more access to public education institutions throughout the municipality. If elected to council, I will pursue all the options and campaign hard to improve and increase public education facilities in the East ward.

LIVES IN: Malvern East POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Greens WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? With two-year wait lists for childcare, no secondary school, full kindergartens, inadequate public transport and so many young growing families, we could struggle to offer the next generation a sustainable future. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Let’s tackle childcare availability and work for a good public secondary school. We need good interconnected public transport, 24-hour public transport for Chapel Street and safer bike routes. Let’s better protect our beautiful old trees from development pressure. Let’s help businesses and council work towards being carbon neutral.

LIVES IN: Glen Iris POLITICAL AFFILIATION: None WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? As the population increases, so does the shortage of viable parking on our streets and general traffic congestion. The energy and thriving nature of the area is lost as people drive past iconic, community-based shopping strips. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Council needs to develop a blueprint for development and provide clarity in planning and decision making. It needs to ensure the viability of strip shopping areas by ensuring planning decisions are made in the interest of the wider community. Community shopping needs to be enhanced and developed to reduce the emphasis on driving far afield.

LIVES IN: Malvern POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Running as independent but affiliated with Victorian Liberal Party WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? The biggest issue is planning, which affects the dynamics of our community. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Council should take a responsible approach to planning, so the decisions made reap the most benefit for the community. This means that each case base should be judged on its merits and facts – not hearsay or opinions but actual data and the evidence to back it up – and finding the right balance for the community.

LIVES IN: Ratepayer in East ward POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? A lack of open spaces for recreation and outdated sports facilities. Many have looked outside of Stonnington for parks and gardens better equipped to cater for their needs. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Although Stonnington has some very attractive parks, gardens and fields, these are in need of some attention. Council has invested in upgrades in the past, however may need to set aside additional funds to ensure the repair, upgrade and maintenance of some of these spaces. Long-term strategies need to be implemented for sustainable approaches in planning.

LIVES IN: South Yarra POLITICAL AFFILIATION: None WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? The most important issue facing electors is how the new council will deal with planning and overdevelopment, finance and rates, community services and environment/sustainability. The overarching issue is whether we are going to have a strong council comprising independent, responsive and effective councillors or a council hijacked by sectional political party interests. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? The electorate will need to do the difficult job of sussing out what the various candidates really stand for.

LIVES IN: South Yarra POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? There are a number of issues affecting Stonnington today, but the one that demands the most pressing attention is inappropriate high-density and aesthetically challenged development in residential areas. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? It is imperative the planning minister is held to account on his promise to empower councils in planning matters. Power needs to be returned to our communities so that residents and business people can have the final say in shaping development in our city. This means proper rights of appeal.

LIVES IN: Malvern POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Member of the Liberal Party WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? As a long-term resident and ratepayer raising a family in North ward, I’m concerned about the impact inappropriate development is having. Developments such as the 26-storey tower approved for Yarra Street will only make matters worse. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? I will work to make sure local communities have a say on planning, and not just developers, and VCAT. I will work hard to advocate for sensible planning outcomes that are in the best interests of the local community.

LIVES IN: South Yarra POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? Improving the journey for cyclists who travel our thoroughfares, maintaining our river trails for all who use it. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? It is important that we take the necessary steps now to tackle vehicular congestion and to promote rider participation. If elected, I will promote alternative routes for our cyclists to lessen traffic on our busier roads, seek to have road surfaces improved, particularly in areas close to kerbs, and to introduce additional bike facilities where practicable.

LIVES IN: Windsor POLITICAL AFFILIATION: None WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? The increasing high-rise developments that continue to be approved, causing justifiable concern for residents who are left with the devaluing of their properties and the effect these developments are having. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Council needs to carefully assess the long-term effects of such developments and value residential input on the subject. There is no reason why low-rise designs could not be considered as the better alternative, particularly, if due consideration is to be given to the overall impact on infrastructure in Stonnington.

LIVES IN: Ratepayer in North ward POLITICAL AFFILIATION: None WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? The most important issue is inappropriate development, with the added problems of parking shortages, poor drainage and bins clogging up footpaths. Residential amenity, clean streets and more open space are big priorities for me. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Council needs to spend more money upgrading drains and force developers to contribute. I will continue to advocate for quick graffiti clean-ups. I will promote partnerships between council, traders and the state government to encourage private CCTV cameras and surveillance in public spaces.

LIVES IN: South Yarra POLITICAL AFFILIATION: None WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? Planning. Together with my neighbours, I have been forced to VCAT three times on two separate major building proposals in the past five years. We have had to defend our neighbourhood character and way of living against inappropriate development. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Council needs to rigorously apply (and defend) its own planning scheme. Millions of ratepayer dollars have been spent developing the planning scheme, which is then, all too readily, ignored. Local residents should not be forced to spend their own time and money at VCAT.

LIVES IN: South Yarra POLITICAL AFFILIATION: None WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? Better planning is one of the most pressing issues. Without sensitive and firm controls the city will be overrun by high-rise, inappropriate low-rise and overdevelopment with the result of unique character and livability being lost. Other issues include rising costs, security, street lighting and open spaces. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Council must take control and set defined height limits, not ambiguous preferred maximums, define character precincts for all locations and increase heritage areas. We choose a location because of its streetscape, so staying true to the original integrity is paramount.

LIVES IN: Toorak POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Greens WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? Sustainability is one of the biggest issues facing the world as a whole – including our local community right here in Stonnington. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Reducing landfill and pollution, increasing recycling, improving energy efficiency and using renewable energy can reduce our cost of living and improve the health of our community.

LIVES IN: East Malvern POLITICAL AFFILIATION: ALP WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? Town planning matters will always be a pressing matter for our community in Stonnington. But my own community surveys have told me that cost of living pressures are hurting our seniors and are putting pressures on young families. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? If elected, the first thing I will do is table a councillor report that if supported by my colleagues will deliver a $100 rate discount for all seniors in Stonnington. I will also be pushing for a much fairer payment scheme for rates.

LIVES IN: Malvern POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? I am concerned about the effect on the already stretched infrastructure further development will bring. This is an issue that if not kept at the forefront, could see councils become irrelevant through the process. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? Being a pragmatist, I am acutely aware we will never see an end to development in our community. But council needs to become far more involved in the process to continue its relevance. This requires council to be more approachable.

LIVES IN: Toorak POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Independent (member of the Liberal Party) WHAT IS THE MOST PRESSING MATTER FACING STONNINGTON? How to respond to the demands for accommodation to cater for increasing population while maintaining the character and environment of Stonnington. HOW DO YOU PROPOSE COUNCIL BETTER ADDRESS THIS ISSUE? We need a strategic plan that ensures we get the balance right. Council needs to be a leader in ensuring our amazing environment is not squandered. We need to consider very carefully the legacy we will leave for future generations.

ART EXPRESS Windsor artist ANNA MINARDO aims to paint 200 portraits in one month to raise money for charity or Italian-born artist Anna Minardo, the relationship between the subject and the painter is extremely intimate. A painter all her life, Minardo loves the craft but says it’s the personal connection that means most. “The moment that I start [a painting], I can start exploring techniques and even subjects, but mainly I relate strongly to the feeling that you get out of it,” she says. “It’s not static. I put in an expression and capture moments and emotion.’’ The Windsor artist is holding a portrait marathon until November 15, during which she hopes to paint 200 portraits in a month. She will give a portion of the $360 fee her subjects pay to the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. The portrait marathon is part of the Right Angle Project, held with Minardo’s two artist sons to raise

money for worthy causes through art.The first portrait subjects will be some of the institute’s patients, including four-year-old twins Allegra and Alex. Allegra was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis this year. The twins have been part of a study to determine why one twin gets a condition while the other does not. Painting a portrait in just an hour is a challenge Minardo embraces. “The moment I see a person, I capture their spirit, choose a background and go straight into it,” she says.“I always start with the eyes; once the eyes are there . . . all the rest comes naturally.” Minardo has painted many highprofile people including Pope John Paul II, architect Peter McIntyre, and Dame Elisabeth Murdoch.

THE VERDICT The 20-odd people at Hit the Floor’s zumba open day on a Monday evening range from first-timers to those with varying experience or natural talent. The two guys in the group look happy, but it’s mostly a chick thing. Nervous novices can stay surprisingly invisible in the class because everyone is way too busy keeping up with the routine. Kick, split, tap; knees up, turn, dip; shimmy, shimmy, shake ... A zumba class can take care of almost 500 calories or, roughly, a latte and a friand. So worth it.

He leaves four children – Julie, Graeme, Gary and Andrea – and five grandchildren – Thomas, Rachel, Hugh, Maxwell and Patrick. Hayes started Tait Timber and Hardware in Tooronga in the 1960s and three of his children have worked in the business. He was a Triple Sapphire member of the Rotary Club of Malvern. Its president,Yvonne Flynn, said it was standing-room only at the September 10 funeral for Hayes, a

man known for his generous and philanthropic nature. “I worked at Very Special Kids for eight years as a fund-raising manager and I knew Geoff on that level as well,” Ms Flynn says. “He instigated and helped in so many ways through Tait. “I would have loved to have known Geoff when he was a younger man because he was really cheeky and still had a spark in the eye. He was a very witty man. “His family had a house in Blairgowrie and he would open his house to parties for Rotary and others. “He will be greatly missed because he had a wonderful, positive attitude.” Hayes was a resident of Regis McKinley House in Armadale in recent years.

CHRIS HOPKINS

Pitch-perfect game for Malvern’s Da Silva BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au IT was a mixed day for Malvern Baseball Club at the weekend, with wins, losses and a forfeit in senior men’s and women’s games. The women’s firsts scored a win through a forfeit by Essendon, the seconds obliterated Doncaster 18-1 and the men went down narrowly to Geelong. Ashling Da Silva pitched three innings without conceding a run as the women took early control of the seconds match against Doncaster. While Malvern only scored two runs in the opening innings, seven in the second all but clinched the win. A scoreless third innings gave Doncaster a slim chance, but another seven runs in the fourth sealed the result and the mercy rule was used at the end of the fifth. Da Silva was the game’s standout, while Sharon Wilson looked good a second base and also got the first hit of the game.

Malvern coach Ursula Howard was pleased with both the result and the chance to give some of their firsts players a run in the seconds. “Ash De Silva will be our starting pitcher in the ones next week,” Howard said. “We just needed to build some confidence for the coming weeks cause we’ve been working hard in the pre-season.” It was a much tighter affair in the men’s game, as Malvern ventured over to Geelong to take on the powerful Baycats. Two extra innings were required to separate the teams, with an errant pitch in the 11th gifting Geelong a 4-3 win. It didn’t look like it would get that close early as Malvern shot out to a 3-0 lead in the first innings. Geelong clawed its way back with three in reply and then arm wrestle began. Sean Talbot pitched seven innings, keeping Geelong at bay, but Malvern was unable to get the cru-

cial extra run despite out-hitting the Baycats 12-11. Unfortunately for Talbot it was his wild pitch, when Geelong had bases loaded in the 11th inning, that allowed the winning run. Despite that, he was still among the best for the Braves, keeping the score under control throughout the middle and later stages of the game. Chris Wall was also among the best with an equal game high three hits. Malvern coach Adam Burton was pleased with his team’s performance. “We matched it with them today and if we’d taken our chances a couple of times we could’ve come away with the win so I really rate our chances going forward,” Burton said. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

Bitter-sweet for Armadale

Second win puts Prahran on top MICHAEL COPP

BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au PRAHRAN continued its perfect start to the Premier Cricket season and went to the top of the table with a resounding 77-run win over Footscray Edgewater. After winning the toss and batting in the one-day match at Merv Hughes Oval, Prahran made 8-173 in the 50 overs before bowling out the home side for just 96. Prahran’s opening partnership of 52 between Stephen Seymour and Daniel Salpietro built a strong platform and there was no let-up when they departed as Steven De Bolfo (33) took the fight up to Footscray. Despite a minor mid-order wobble, some late-order hitting from Jack Taylor (20) got the True Blues to 8-173. When Footscray replied, Prahran removed the dangerous Wes Robinson for just nine. Dean Russ and Greg Sheehan then ground their way to 41 before spin broke their partnership, with Salpietro claiming Russ for 13. It was all Prahran from there on in and Footscray was unable to get momentum.

Salpietro took 3-9 in his 10 overs, while former Test spinner Bryce McGain claimed 2-13. Prahran coach Andrew Walton was pleased with the evenness of contributions. “We were probably looking for 200 plus, but the pleasing thing was

we didn’t throw our wickets away and collapse,” he said. “And the bowlers were outstanding. Rhys Adams was superb early and then the spinners locked it up totally.” Prahran plays a double header this weekend, against Dandenong and

Camberwell. Both Prahran and Dandenong will get players back from state duty, with Chris Rogers and potentially David Hussey back for the True Blues, while Dandenong could regain Peter Siddle and James Pattinson. Full scoreboard below

IT WAS a week of mixed results for Armadale Lawn Bowls Club, falling to a mid-week loss in women’s pennant before a convincing win for the men’s firsts on Saturday. The Armadale women went down 2-57 to Berwick’s 14-76, leaving the locals with one win from the first three rounds. Gaby Cohen was Armadale’s best, winning her rink 23-22. But that was as close as anyone could get, with both other rinks losing. Gail Nadelman lost 19-24 and Denese Brick 15-30. Both Brick and Nadelman were recently selected for Victoria in the over-60s pairs, but could not find their best form on the day. They will miss Armadale’s game this week because of their Victorian commitments. Armadale’s men turned the club’s fortunes around with a strong win against Hampton. It was a comprehensive victory on an ideal day for bowls, Armadale winning 17-87 to 1-52.

Wanderers’ lost start to season BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au MELBOURNE Wanderers continued their difficult start to the year losing to Kingston Heath by four wickets in the City of Moorabbin Cricket Association’s Quiney Shield at the weekend. Wanderers won the toss and batted first, but were soon in trouble after losing two wickets early in the innings. Melbourne captain Luke Hesketh and Phil Toyne got their side back on track with a steadying partner-

ship of 26, which included two huge sixes from Toyne. Shenol Leppik joined his skipper at the crease and they put together another solid partnership, before Hesketh was out for the top score of 26. Leppik and Shaun Hawking made some handy runs, but the tail failed to fire and Wanderers were bowled out for 119 with 10 balls to spare. Kingston Heath started well with the bat, cruising to 24 before Toyne turned the game on its head with a hat-trick. He snared opener Neil McKenzie

LBW, before bowling Ryan Gordon and Rayne Baptist to complete the feat. With that injection of life, Shayne Armstead picked up his first wicket soon after to reduce Kingston to 4-32 and give the Wanderers a sniff of victory. But from there it was all Kingston Heath, as their batsmen dug in and got the runs required, finishing on 6-122 with two overs remaining. Hesketh was left lamenting his team’s inability to put more runs on the scoreboard to put the pressure on the opposition.

BRIEFS ■ VAFA SEEKS UMPS The Victorian Amateur Football Association is seeking umpires for the 2013 season. Former players, junior umpires and senior umpires are all welcome to apply, with many VAFA umpires going on to officiate at the highest level. Umpires are paid, with all payments tax free. Details: vafa.com.au.

“We probably fell about 20 runs short,” Hesketh said. “If we’d had an extra 15-20 runs we would have really tested them. ‘‘It was a bit wet when we were bowling so the ball got pretty messed up. It’s was one of those days.” With two-day cricket starting this week, Hesketh said his team needed to work on the batting after being bowled out cheaply in both the opening one-dayers. “That’s a big focus and we had a chat about that after the game, just that mindset of occupying the crease,” he said.

■ MALVERN’S SLOW START Malvern’s first XI has yet to play a game in Sub District cricket this season, after weather caused play to be called off at all grounds on the weekend. Malvern’s first-round match was also abandoned.

World’s best gives us a taste of his skills FOR the man who’s worn number one on his back for the past 11 years, Australian hockey star Jamie Dwyer, 33, isn’t ready to give up the mantle of world’s best player just yet. Dwyer, who visited Camberwell Hockey Club last week to give a skills clinic and play in an exhibition game, is near the end of a glittering hockey career that has netted him every award in the game. But he still wants more success. ‘‘I hope to be in Melbourne in December for the Champions Trophy and then we’ll go from there,’’ Dwyer says. ‘‘I’ve had chats with (Australian coach) Ric Charlesworth about my schedule and about managing my workload over the next couple of years because I’m not getting any younger.’’ The 2014 World Cup and Commonwealth Games are firmly on Dwyer’s radar but he’s doubtful he’ll make a tilt at a fourth Olympics in Rio in four years. ‘‘I wouldn’t say no chance, but there’s a good chance I won’t play in Rio,’’ Dwyer says. The Kookaburras won every major international event on offer between the 2008 and 2012 Olympics but could manage only bronze in London after losing to Germany in the semi-finals. They then beat Great Britain in a playoff to take the bronze medal. ‘‘Unfortunately, if you mess up in one game there’s no second chance, so that was disappointing,’’ Dwyer says. ‘‘But to bring home a medal is

Test opener Ed Cowan will be there and half the takings from book sales on the night will go to the South Yarra CC. Details: yarras.com. ■ ED DOES THE JOB Old Scotch’s Ed Walmsley led the VAFA under-18 side to victories in both their tour games against New Zealand under-18s in Wellington last weekend. Walmsley kicked three goals in each game as his team won by 81 and 61 points in the annual series.

THAT’S HOW YOU DO IT: Jamie Dwyer (centre) displays his world-class skills in an exhibition match at Camberwell still a good achievement and we’re still proud of that.’’ Dwyer has been part of a golden era for the Kookaburras, winning Olympic gold in 2004 as well as five Champions Trophy successes, three successive Commonwealth Games golds and the 2010 World Cup. ‘‘As a little kid all I wanted to do was to play for Australia and go to the Olympics. I got that opportunity and to have success at my first Olympics was a dream come true,’’ he says. Dwyer is working towards coach-

ing when his playing career is over. ‘‘I’m very competitive and I want to stay involved in the sport I love and help it grow,’’ he says. ‘‘I want to keep the tradition of the Kookaburras going because we do have a very proud tradition, winning five medals at the last five Olympics.’’ Dwyer says the Kookaburras would aim to avenge the Olympic loss to Germany when they come to Melbourne for the Champions Trophy. ‘‘We want to redeem ourselves.’’
