An East Vic­to­ria Park res­i­dent who could have been forced to re­move the roller door from her home’s car­port per­ma­nently be­cause it did not com­ply with a Town of Vic­to­ria Park plan­ning pol­icy – de­spite the fact it was in­stalled more than a decade ago­had our on­line read­ers share their thoughts. Common sense pre­vailed and the Town voted to ap­prove this roller door at their coun­cil meet­ing. I would have thought the im­per­me­able brick wall would be more of an is­sue. It's my un­der­stand­ing that th­ese walls are only ac­cept­able on main roads not res­i­den­tial streets. - Peter Mel­rosa If it hasn't been a prob­lem for any­one for the past 12 years then it should be al­lowed to re­main. I un­der­stand the need to pre­serve the weath­er­board precinct, how­ever in­di­vid­u­als se­cu­rity should also be a con­sid­er­a­tion. - Grace Zaskolny Surely res­i­dents’ safety should come first and there­fore they should be able to pro­tect them­selves and their cars by hav­ing a roller door.
