Bendigo GovHub Petition

This Petition of residents of Victoria draws to the attention of the house the proposal before City of

Greater Bendigo to:

(a) sell a council-owned asset to the State Government for the purpose of developing the

Bendigo GovHub, and;

(b) to then lease the same council offices back to City of Greater Bendigo in perpetuity,

without providing any evidence to confirm that this decision is in local ratepayers’ best interests.

The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Assembly call on the Government to publish

the evidence behind this proposal so local ratepayers can be properly informed and have confidence

this deal will not force negative long-term financial burden on Bendigo ratepayers.
