It is sad news that earlier this morning (Friday 27th July 2018) one of TVAG's oldest supporters past away. Brenda Jellett had been living next door to the fast food development but moved to quieter accomodation at that time. She is now at peace.

Tecoma Survey ResultsMany thanks to all those who completed our first Community Survey, Tecoma is a really collaborative community. And congratulations to Paul and Brian who were randomly selected by computer program to each win $25 gift voucher for plants from the Southern Dandenongs Community Nursery at Birdsland.
This first survey was to explore the community structure and gain a feel of what is important to Tecoma residents and workers. We are most grateful for the time you have taken to complete the survey. TVAG is now analysing the results and will keep you posted on projects that eventuate from this survey.
Application for Planning Permit next to Salvos
An application for a planning permit to develop the vacant lot at 1533 Burwood Highway has been made public and the Shire of Yarra Ranges are asking for input from the public. The plans for this site include a shop front, above which will be constructed 2 apartments behind which will be 3 multi-storey townhouses. They are also applying for a reduction in the required car parking.
This would be the only building in Tecoma with a 2-storey frontage to Burwood Highway and includes 3-stories at the rear, both which could set precedents for future developments.
All those with an interest in the future of Tecoma and the maintenance of Tecoma as a "Hills Township" are encouraged to lodge a submission as soon as possible. More details are available from the Council Link Office in Upwey or here...
