Melvista park­ing feed­back sought

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion -

THE City of Ned­lands is ask­ing res­i­dents for their feed­back on pro­posed changes to park­ing ar­range­ments in the Melvista Park precinct.

The area, bounded by Broad­way, Ed­ward, Web­ster and Bruce streets and the Es­planade, ex­tends about 800m from UWA.

A sur­vey was held by the City to de­ter­mine park­ing trends with on­street park­ing and coun­cil verges, iden­ti­fy­ing ar­eas of high use in places with and with­out re­stric­tions.

Ned­lands Mayor Max Hip­kins said review aimed to im­prove the area while en­sur­ing the needs of res­i­dents, vis­i­tors and busi­nesses con­tin­ued to be met.

“The review area was cho­sen due to the prox­im­ity of UWA, mul­ti­ple sport­ing clubs and busi­nesses that place a large de­mand on park­ing in that lo­ca­tion,” he said.

“The City con­tin­u­ally re­ceives queries re­gard­ing park­ing in and around the Melvista Park precinct so, as part of the review, we wanted to en­sure the pro­posed amend­ments do not have flow-on ef­fects across the area.

“Cri­te­ria used for con­sid­er­ing changes to cur­rent park­ing re­stric­tions are an oc­cu­pancy rate of 85 per cent or higher – when that oc­curs, new re­stric­tions may be im­posed.”

Based on the ev­i­dence col­lected through the review, changes will be im­ple­mented in two phases.

The first would in­clude com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion and a review of feed­back on the pro­posed changes be­fore a re­port is pre­pared for the coun­cil.

The sec­ond phase would see the pro­posed park­ing changes ap­plied and mon­i­tored over three months, then their im­pact re­viewed and any ad­just­ments rec­om­mended.

Res­i­dents have been in­vited to com­ment on park­ing plans.
