There is currently an application for a new Hotel on the corner of Princes Highway and Station Street in Officer which includes 80 poker machines! The community has been been fiercely campaigning against the plans that has resulted in the Cardinia Shire and the Victorian Commission of Gambling and Liquor Regulation reject the application.
However, the applicants have decided to take this decision to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) which means we need to ensure the Cardinia and Officer community voice is heard loud and clear: Officer does not want more pokies!!
There are 3 actions you can take:
- Request a corflute sign: we are sending out huge corflute signs to those living in Officer to place on front fences and in windows for the community to see!
- Order a T-Shirt: order a t-shirt and then post a photo of yourself on social media wearing it in Officer! Don't forget to hashtag #pokiesplayofficer
- Have your say: We have created a page so that you can write a message stating why you do not want 80 more poker machines in Officer. We will then collate all the responses and send it to VCAT!
