Tom Elliott says Boroondara Council’s resistance to plans to convert its staff car park into a green space for a local school and residents is hypocritical.

“A majority of Boroondara councillors have said that they support the declaration of a climate emergency, but the same council they represent is opposing turning a council car park into a green space,” the 3AW Drive host said on Wednesday.

“This is the sort of hypocrisy I cannot stand.”

The state government has also chipped in $1.7 million to the project that council is opposing.

Councillor Victor Franco said there was no doubt it was hypocritical from his colleagues.

Meg Boyle is chair of the Camberwell Green group of residents and said it was incredibly disappointing.

“Many of the councillors actually run on policy that they care for the environment and yet when it actually comes down to doing something on the ground in their municipality, they refuse to do it,” she said.
