City of Greater Shepparton councillors are due to begin hearing public submissions about the controversial road closure plan on Tuesday next week.
Greater Shepparton City Council has received 905 written submissions about the plan.
Of those, 27 favour closing the road and selling it to fruit processor SPC Ardmona.
The remaining 878 are against.
Some submitters had prepared their own letters, while others have submitted a pro forma letter opponents of the closure have prepared.
Council chief executive Gavin Cator yesterday said more than 400 people who had submitted a written submission had asked to speak at the meeting.
‘‘But many of those have been on the pro forma letter that people have been requested to sign,’’ Mr Cator said.
