1.                  During drop off and pick-up times Rangers are to visit the site to monitor safety and reinforce good traffic safety practice following the opening of the centre.

QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE.

 

Councillor Palmer asked the following Question Without Notice regarding parking in Bellevue Avenue, Greenwich.

 

Parking in Bellevue Avenue is limited to 2 hours from 8am to 8pm, 7 days per week.  The street is busy Monday to Friday with the TAFE and UTS across the other side of Pacific Highway.   RNS Hospital is some distance away but it is walkable.   The area is not suitable for train travellers, being too far from St Leonards or Wollstonecraft.   During the week it may be occupied by local office workers.   TAFE/UTS students and office workers parking needs are Monday to Friday so there is adequate weekend parking for visitors however the 2 hour restriction remains.    

 

Weekend visitors to the area have difficulty restricting their visit to comply with the time limits for parking and there seems no reason for 2 hour parking restrictions to extend into the weekend.  

 

Could Council look at changing the restriction?

CLOSE

 

The meeting closed at 7:42pm.

 

Confirmed at the Ordinary Council Meeting of 2 March 2009, at which meeting the signature herein is subscribed.
