Bike bays wheeled out for buildings
RESIDENTS in new apartments in two developments on Graylands Road, Claremont will have dedicated bike bays.
There will also be bike parking for visitors at the Mirvac developments in the North East Precinct.
At a recent Metro West Joint Development Assessment Panel meeting, members approved the 92-apartment development at 505 Graylands Road and five and six-storey plans at 504 Graylands Road with amendments.
Specialist member Malcolm Mackay got support for amendments on both proposals that would include visitor bike parking bays near the developments’ main entries as well as dedicated bike parking for residents.
Mr Mackay said the amendments would address the inadequacy of bike parking and acknowledge that residential stores should not be used for the purpose.
Town of Claremont JDAP member Bruce Haynes failed to get the application for 505 Graylands Road deferred to address concerns about access to the site. Last month, Claremont councillors approved the development but wanted Mirvac to consider options other than Graylands Road for an access point to avoid congestion.
The developers will have to provide evidence that the driveway designs will not cause queuing on Graylands Road.
