From an episode of Breakfasters
Rally for Fed Square on Breakfasters
Tania Davidge is president of Citizens for Melbourne, a local group advocating for the maintenance and ongoing quality of public spaces. Since initiation the group has staunchly opposed plans to build a new Apple store in the middle of Federation Square. Tania spoke to Jeff, Geraldine and Sarah about the glaring lack of public process prior to making a deal with the multinational tech company. She also discussed the impact of building private establishments in public spaces, particularly those – such as Federation Square – which are currently being appraised for heritage status.
