Project Update: October 2014

almost 5 years ago

Council is currently operating in caretaker mode, and therefore it's not possible to provide the full report of the consultation process or to seek Council endorsement on the final parking plan until early 2015.

A report was presented to the 'City Infrastructure & Public Works' Committee this month to provide a quick update on the consultation.

We can advise that,

  • 48 responses (5.2% of the letters distributed) were received, of which 3 were via email and 45 on the official feedback forms.
  • 68.75% of the respondents lived or worked in the East End and 62.5% of the respondents were ratepayers.
  • There was strong support for the statements relating to a high turnover of vehicles; that parking should primarily cater for short visits; and be of greater consistency. There was overwhelming support for parking controls being easy to understand and supporting different user groups.

Additional details on the feedback will be provided in a report to be considered by Council. For further details on this update please click here.
