Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

SOUTH Perth streets near bus routes are in­creas­ingly be­com­ing free park­ing lots for peo­ple from other ar­eas.

They ar­rive early on week­day morn­ings, catch a bus to Perth and re­turn late af­ter­noon.

In the Mill Point ward they are clog­ging up streets to the point where some res­i­dents and ratepay­ers are sim­ply un­able to park their cars, for any ex­tended pe­riod, near their house.

The City of South Perth has been made aware of this but have done noth­ing re­al­is­tic to solve the prob­lem.

Other in­ner coun­cils acted long ago and is­sued park­ing vouch­ers to res­i­dents.

If you are af­fected by these free load­ers, con­tact your Coun­cil rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

Sug­gest to them that their re-elec­tion will not get your sup­port un­less they act on this grow­ing prob­lem which, with the cur­rent build­ing ac­tiv­ity, is only go­ing to get worse in the fu­ture. BAR­RIE DUBALL, South Perth.
