Timeline

Timeline of Collingwood Action Groups' campaign for the right development on Smith Street.

Collingwood Action Group's timeline - of activities, meetings and paper trails just for starters - records what's unfolded in response to Banco's proposal for a massive development for Smith Street, Collingwood/Fitzroy. Starting in March 2004, the timeline is a good guide to happenings from the community's perspective, but isn't a completely comprehensive record of all that's occurred during this campaign for the right development on Smith Street.

As well as this chronological version of events, the timeline can be reviewed from present to past, and the current month's activities are on our website's home page (www.smithstreet.org/cag).

For details of press reports about this and other related planning matters during the same timeframe, refer to our website's 'Media Watch' section.
