The group opposing plans for two new memorials on Anzac Parade in Canberra is calling on the new Federal Minister responsible for Territories to put an end to the idea.
The Lake War Memorials Forum has written to Catherine King asking her to put a stop to the proposal for memorials commemorating World War I and World War II.
The original plan was for the memorials to be built near Lake Burley Griffin but after community outcry the proponents then changed the location to Anzac Parade.
David Stephens from the Memorials Forum says the memorials are unnecessary.
"It's clear that the great bulk of commemoration at the War Memorial is for the dead of WWI and II, as it should be," he said.
"It is quite superfluous and unnecessary to then go and try and build specific stand alone memorials, essentially piles of stone.
"We just think the opportunity is there with a new minister to perhaps cut through and finally get this committee to meet and end the proposal once and for all."
