YRBA radio

11 May 2017

The Yarra River Business Association (YRBA) met with 774 ABC Melbourne radio broadcaster Jon Faine last month as part of an hour-long program devoted to how to activate the Lower Yarra.

YRBA board member Emma Cullen and YRBA business member Courtney Carthy were joined by University of Melbourne urban ecohydrology professor Tim Fletcher as part of Jon’s Conversation Hour segment on April 20.

It presented a rare opportunity for the YRBA to present the local business community’s views on mainstream media and the discussion triggered with listeners made for a wonderful hour of radio.

While all three panelists were in defiant agreement that the environmental prosperity of the river was of primary importance, Emma and Courtney were able to cast an important spotlight on the over-regulation that’s been plaguing the activation of the river for many years.

Another important discussion will be held on May 16, when the recently appointed Parks Victoria advisory committee for the Lower Yarra River addresses water operators in Docklands.

The 45-minute meeting will be held from 4pm on the MV Lady Cutler, which is berthed at Central Pier and will feature a presentation and question and answer session. An invitation is extended to all interested parties.

The YRBA will also host its first business drinks for 2017 at the Waterslide Bar at Southgate on May 18 at 6pm.
