Bike bays wheeled out for build­ings

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.
