Part III: The final boundaries - Lynbrook
- Mr Rod Spalding, a resident of the Lynbrook Residents Association, objected to the proposed boundary between Cranbourne and Narre Warren South districts, which runs along the South Gippsland Highway and splits the suburb of Lynbrook. Mr Spalding asked why you would want to break a community into two different electorates, and noted that this would require residents to arrange meetings with two members instead of one. He suggested that the boundary should follow Hallam and Olive Roads to include the whole suburb in Cranbourne district.
- Cranbourne is growing so rapidly that the EBC needs to keep its current numbers as low as possible to reduce the chances of it growing beyond the 10 per cent tolerance. Moreover, the South Gippsland Highway is a strong, clear boundary, while the suggested boundary at one point follows an unsealed road. The EBC considers that these factors outweigh the undesirability of placing a small portion of Lynbrook in a different district, and cannot agree with Mr Spalding’s suggestion.
