Park­ing plan wor­ries res­i­dents

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

NED­LANDS Mayor Max Hipkins says an­gry res­i­dents have hit back at sug­ges­tions that Asquith Park could be de­vel­oped into park­ing for the adjacent Mt Clare­mont Vil­lage Shop­ping Cen­tre.

Coun­cil­lor Leo McManus’s elected mem­ber’s mo­tion to al­lo­cate $5000 for City of Ned­lands staff to in­ves­ti­gate pro­vi­sion of at least 16 park­ing bays in the res­i­den­tial block at the cor­ner of Rochdale Road and Asquith Street was ap­proved 6-3 at a com­mit­tee meet­ing last week.

“This caused a lot of con­cern to res­i­dents, es­pe­cially those who ex­er­cise their dogs at the park,” Mr Hipkins said.

“If the lot was used as a park­ing area, then it would sat­isfy a park­ing de­mand at the shops.

“How­ever, I feel that more could be done with ra­tio­nal­i­sa­tion, such as lim­it­ing three-hour park­ing to 15 or 30 min­utes in cur­rent bays.”

The com­mit­tee rec­om­men­da­tion will be con­sid­ered at coun­cil on De­cem­ber 15.
