TAC125-10BAKER STREET OATLEY - ALTERATIONS TO KERB ALIGNMENT AN REQUEST FOR NO PARKING RESTRICTIONS
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File10/400



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council's Asset Engineer has made a representation requesting Council to consider extending the kerb alignments and installing a No Parking restriction between the vehicular crossing of 44 and 46 Baker Street, Oatley.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the proposed extension of kerb alignment by 0.5m between the vehicular crossings of 44 and 46 Baker Street, Oatley be approved.

THAT a 6m "No Parking" restriction be installed between the vehicular crossing of 44 and 46 Baker Street, Oatley after the realignment work for the kerb face is completed.

FURTHER THAT Council's Asset Engineer be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council's Asset Engineer has made representations regarding changing the kerb alignment between the vehicular crossings of 44 and 46 Baker Street Oatley. It has been stated that the kerb and gutter is damaged and lifted as a result of roots of a large street tree. This raised kerb is causing ponding to occur across the layback of 46 Baker Street Oatley. The subject section of kerb has been replaced recently, however the tree roots have lifted the same section of kerbing again and once more the same section needs to be replaced.

The trunk of the tree is less than 100mm from the back of the existing kerb alignment. It is necessary remove most of the roots under the existing kerb to reduce the frequency of damage to the kerb at this location. Council's Tree Preservation Officers has advised that it is not possible to remove a large proportion of roots at this location without potentially affecting the health of the tree.

To avoid having to replace the kerb again in the near future, it is proposed to realign the kerb line between the vehicular crossings of 44 and 46 Baker Street, Oatley (a distance of approximately 6m). The realigning of the kerb would move the face of the kerb out by 0.5m in front of the tree, with gradual transitions from the laybacks of 44 and 46 Baker Street to the existing kerb alignment. This will allow enough space for tree to grow without affecting the kerb and guttering in the near future.

The proposed work would result in a localised narrowing of the road width by 0.5m, creating a "kerb blister" effect between the vehicular crossings of 44 and 46 Baker Street, Oatley.

The narrowing of the road at the subject location is not detrimental as the width of the road is about 8.7m. However the location of the road narrowing is near the intersection of Lansdowne and Baker Street and therefore it is recommended that a "No Parking" restriction be installed for the 6m length of kerb that will be replaced.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the proposed extension of kerb alignment by 0.5m between the vehicular crossings of 44 and 46 Baker Street, Oatley be approved.

THAT a 6m "No Parking" restriction be installed between the vehicular crossing of 44 and 46 Baker Street, Oatley after the realignment work for the kerb face is completed.

THAT delineation linemarking be installed at the proposed kerb blister to channelise through traffic on Baker Street, Oatley.

FURTHER THAT Council's Asset Engineer be advised of Council's decision.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - SD

THAT the proposed extension of kerb alignment by 0.5m between the vehicular crossings of 44 and 46 Baker Street, Oatley be approved.

THAT delineation linemarking be installed at the proposed kerb blister to channelise through traffic on Baker Street, Oatley.

FURTHER THAT Council's Asset Engineer be advised of Council's decision.

TAC126-10BOUNDARY ROAD, MORTDALE - ROAD SAFETY CONCERNS
Report Author/sTraffic Engineering Officer, Mr H Saab
File09/529



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident of Mortdale raising concerns about the proposed carpark at the Masonic Hall in Mortdale and the affects it will have on the traffic network, especially Boundary Road.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the resident's request for traffic calming devices in Boundary Road, Mortdale be denied.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council is currently demolishing the Masonic Hall in Cook Street, Mortdale and constructing a public car park with 41 car parking spaces. As part of the of consultation process, Council has received a representation from a concerned resident of Mortdale claiming that the introduction of the new car park in Cook Street will increase traffic movements in Mortdale.

She states, in part, that;


Council does not believes that the proposed parking facility would increase traffic movements in Mortdale as no major landuse developments are proposed in the area. The proposed facility will improve availability of parking within the commercial centre reducing the need for motorists driving around the local area trying to find a parking space.

It is further advised that Boundary Road is a regional road that provides access to a number of industrial area. Accordingly, Boundary Road carry significant amount of heavy vehicles whereby Traffic Calming devices are considered inappropriate as such devices will restrict access for heavy vehicles, increase traffic congestion and traffic noise levels.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the resident's request for traffic calming devices in Boundary Road, Mortdale be denied.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - SD

THAT the resident's request for traffic calming devices in Boundary Road, Mortdale be denied.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.
(Moved His Worship the Mayor, Councillor P Sansom / Seconded Councillor N Liu)



RESOLUTION - CCL

THAT the resident's request for traffic calming devices in Boundary Road, Mortdale be denied.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.

TAC127-10BROAD ARROW ROAD AND WILSON STREET, NARWEE - REQUEST FOR NO STOPPING RESTRICTIONS
Report Author/sTraffic Engineering Officer, Mr H Saab
File10/35



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident requesting Council to install No Stopping restrictions at the intersection of Broad Arrow Road and Wilson Street, Narwee.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the 10m statutory No Stopping restrictions be sign posted at the intersection of Broad Arrow Road and Wilson Street, Narwee.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.



REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident of Wilson Street, Narwee requesting Council to consider sign posting statutory No Stopping restrictions at the intersection of Broad Arrow Road and Wilson Street, Narwee. The resident fears for the safety of motorists entering Broad Arrow Road from Wilson Street, as vehicles parked at the corner jeopardises the safety of motorists entering Broad Arrow Road.

Wilson Street is a 7.2 metre wide ‘No Through Road’, with very low traffic movement. Broad Arrow Road is a 12.6 metre wide, regional road which carries more than 10,000 vehicles per day. Broad Arrow Road and Wilson Street intersect perpendicular to each other.

The resident claims that motorists regularly park their vehicles in Broad Arrow Road, close to the intersection of Wilson Street. He has raised safety concerns as these parked vehicles obstruct the view of oncoming traffic on Broad Arrow Road.

The Road Rules, 2008 states that a driver must not stop on a road within 10 metres from the nearest point of an intersecting road at an intersection without traffic lights. This road rule is a common Road Rule and all the drivers holding an Australian driver’s licenses are required to be aware of the Road Rules as part of obtaining their driver's licenses. Accordingly, road authorities including Councils do not signpost every intersection with statutory "No Stopping" signage.

However, as Broad Arrow Road is a busy road, it is considered appropriate to signpost the Statutory No Stopping restriction at the intersection of Broad Arrow Road and Wilson Street to improve road safety by reinforcing the above Road Rule.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the 10m statutory No Stopping restrictions be sign posted at the intersection of Broad Arrow Road and Wilson Street, Narwee.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - SD

THAT the 10m statutory No Stopping restrictions be sign posted at the intersection of Broad Arrow Road and Wilson Street, Narwee.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.

(Moved His Worship the Mayor, Councillor P Sansom / Seconded Councillor N Liu)



RESOLUTION - CCL

THAT the 10m statutory No Stopping restrictions be sign posted at the intersection of Broad Arrow Road and Wilson Street, Narwee.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.

TAC129-10CROSS STREET, HURSTVILLE - PROPOSED RELOCATION OF EXISTING TAXI RANK
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File10/1256



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from the Ministry of Transport requesting to relocate the existing Taxi Zone in Cross Street, Hurstville to accommodate a three length Bus Zone at the existing bus stop in Cross Street outside Westfield Shopping Centre.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the existing landscaped kerb blister at the corner of Cross Street & Humphreys Lane, Hurstville be removed.

THAT the existing Taxi Zone in Cross Street outside Westfield Shopping Centre be relocated to the corner of Cross Street & Humphreys Lane, Hurstville.

THAT the existing Bus Zone for the bus stop in Cross Street outside Westfield Shopping Centre be lengthened to 40m.

FURTHER THAT the Ministry of Transport be advised of Council’s decision


REPORT DETAIL

The Traffic Advisory Committee at its meeting in August 2010 considered a report in regard to the proposed ‘Bus Zone’s in Hurstville CBD to facilitate the proposed bus route that will serve the new Hurstville Bus Interchange. One of the locations considered was the existing ‘Bus Stop’ in Cross Street outside Westfield Shopping Centre, where the Ministry of Transport has requested a ‘Bus Zone’ with three bus lengths (approximately 40m).

As shown on the attached layout plan, the Committee recommended to relocate the existing Taxi Rank, to a location ahead of the Bus Zone to ensure that all the Bus Zones (for Bus Stops and lay-over area) are adjoining to each other, so that any overflow of buses from the Bus Stop could use the bus layover area to pick-up or drop-off passengers. Council endorsed the Traffic Advisory Committee’s recommendation at its meeting in August 2010.

Council's decision was tabled at a meeting with the Bus Operators on 20th September 2010. The Ministry of Transport and the Bus Operators rejected Council’s decision claiming that the subject Bus Stop need a minimum of three length Bus Zone to facilitate the peak period demand at this stop. They requested Council to relocate the existing Taxi Stand to either Crofts Avenue or to the other side of Cross Street to accommodate the required three length Bus Zone.

To resolve this issue a meeting was held on 28th September 2010 with all the stakeholders. This meeting was attended by representatives of Ministry of Transport, Bus Operators, St George Taxis and Council. The attendees recommended to examine the possibility of removing the existing landscaped kerb blister at the corner of Cross Street & Humphreys Lane, and relocating the existing Taxi Zone in Cross Street to that location. This will allow the existing Bus Zone at the Bus Stop to be lengthened to 40m.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the existing landscaped kerb blister at the corner of Cross Street & Humphreys Lane, Hurstville be removed.

THAT the existing Taxi Zone in Cross Street outside Westfield Shopping Centre be relocated to the corner of Cross Street & Humphreys Lane, Hurstville.

THAT the existing Bus Zone for the bus stop in Cross Street outside Westfield Shopping Centre be lengthened to 40m.

FURTHER THAT Transport NSW be advised of Council’s decision

TAC131-10925 FOREST ROAD LUGARNO, REQUEST TO REMOVE "NO PARKING" RESTRICTION
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File09/1563



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from the resident of 925 Forest Road Lugarno requesting Council to remove the existing No Parking restriction (outside her premises) in the access laneway that runs parallel to Forest Road, Lugarno.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

To be determined by Committee.


REPORT DETAIL

Properties 925 - 943 Forest Road Lugarno are located and serviced by an access laneway that runs parallel to Forest Road. This laneway is separated from Forest Road by means of concrete median island varying in width from 7m to 10m. The access laneway is located about one metre below the road level and Council has constructed a series of stairways linking Forest Road and the subject access laneway to allow easy pedestrian access between Forest Road and their properties.

The service lane narrows to about 5m in width from properties 933 -925 Forest Road, Lugarno. Council has installed "No Parking" restriction along the eastern side of the narrow section of the laneway as parking of any vehicle along that narrow part will completely block any vehicular access, including emergency vehicle access, to properties 925 to 933 Forest Road Lugarno,

925 Forest Road Lugarno is the last property located at the very end of the subject service lane and accordingly the resident has written to Council requesting Council to remove the "No Parking" restriction outside her premises as parking outside her premises will not hinder access to any other property.

It is advised that the resident has access to an off street parking space by means of a single garage. The resident however has advised that she has two small children, one of which requires a lot of medical attention and accordingly the resident needs to have her car close by and would like to be able to park in front of her premises.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the No Parking restriction outside no 925 Forest Road, Lugarno be removed.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision and be made aware that the unrestricted parking can be utilised by any registered vehicle.






COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - SD

THAT the No Parking restriction outside no 925 Forest Road, Lugarno be removed.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision and be made aware that the unrestricted parking can be utilised by any registered vehicle.




(Moved His Worship the Mayor, Councillor P Sansom / Seconded Councillor N Liu)



RESOLUTION - CCL

THAT the No Parking restriction outside no 925 Forest Road, Lugarno be removed.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision and be made aware that the unrestricted parking can be utilised by any registered vehicle.

TAC134-10MERCURY STREET, NARWEE - REQUEST FOR NO PARKING RESTRICTIONS
Report Author/sTraffic Engineering Officer, Mr H Saab
File08/717



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from the Manager of St Jude Family Medical Centre, requesting Council to install a "No Parking” restriction in front of the vehicular crossing of their property at 107 Mercury Street, Narwee.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT a 7-metre long "No Parking" restriction be installed across the vehicular crossings of 105 and 107 Mercury Street, Narwee.

FURTHER THAT the Manager of St Jude Family Medical Centre be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from the Manager of St Jude Family Medical Centre requesting Council to install a "No Parking" restriction in front of the vehicular crossing of their property at 107 Mercury Street, Narwee. The properties at 105 and 107 Mercury Street are serviced by a combined driveway.

St Jude Family Medical Centre is a part of Narwee shopping centre and is located close to Broad Arrow Road. Due to its close proximity to the commercial centre, the demand for parking in the vicinity of the Medical Centre is very high. At present available on-street parking outside the Medical Centre is restricted to 1 hour. This 1 hour parking restriction is signposted across the vehicular crossing of 105 and 107 Mercury Street, Narwee.

It is further advised that the driveway access to 105 and 107 Mercury Street is located adjoining a speed hump, which hinders the view of the driveway access. Due to the speed hump and signposting, motorists usually mistakenly park at this location blocking access to the above two properties.

Installing No Parking across the driveways of 105 and 107 Mercury Street will help to alleviate this problem.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT a 7-metre long "No Parking" restriction be installed across the vehicular crossings of 105 and 107 Mercury Street, Narwee.

FURTHER THAT the Manager of St Jude Family Medical Centre be advised of Council's decision.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - SD

File10/1870



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Mr Kevin Greene, Member for Oatley on behalf of a resident concerning the existing STOP restriction at the intersection of Patrick Street and Elizabeth Street, Hurstville.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the resident's request to change the STOP restriction for vehicles turning left from Patrick Street into Elizabeth Street be denied.

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Mr Kevin Greene, Member for Oatley on behalf of a resident living in Hurstville with concerns in regards to the existing STOP restriction at the intersection of Patrick Street and Elizabeth Street, Hurstville.

The intersection of Patrick Street and Elizabeth Street, Hurstville is controlled by means of a STOP sign with priority given to traffic on Elizabeth Street/Timothy Street, whereby Traffic on Patrick Street need to come to a complete STOP and give way to vehicles entering the intersection from Elizabeth Street.

The resident wrote to Mr Kevin Greene, member for Oatley advising :


It is advised that it is not possible to install a STOP restriction at an intersection and restrict one manoeuvre and not the other.

Road rule no 67 for Stopping and giving way at a stop sign or stop line at an intersection without traffic lights states that:

The Road Rules does not discriminate against one manoeuvre from another and thus it is advised that all traffic manoeuvres are required to abide by the above Road Rule at an intersection controlled by a STOP restriction.

The only way to accommodate the resident's request is to build a slip lane by means of building a median island along the carriageway to physically separate through traffic movement (traffic travelling straight) and the traffic turning left. It is advised that this cannot be accommodated as the carriageway for traffic travelling south is only 5.3m wide.

TAC140-10THE STRAND, MORTDALE - REQUEST TO CONVERT THE STRAND TO ONE-WAY
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File10/779



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from a resident, requesting Council to consider converting The Strand, Mortdale into a one way street to facilitate more parking spaces in the suburb of Mortdale


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the request to restrict The Strand , Mortdale to a one-way street be denied.

THAT the request to extend the one-way restriction in Pitt Street and Macquarie Street up to Boundary Road be denied

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from a resident requesting Council to consider restricting The Strand between Universal Street and George Street, Mortdale into a one way street to facilitate more parking spaces in the suburb of Mortdale.

The resident wrote to Council advising that he frequently travels to Mortdale for business and is never able to find a parking space within close proximity to where he needs to attend to work. Accordingly the resident has requested Council to consider restricting The Strand to a one-way street to increase the availability of on-street parking.

At present The Strand is a two-way street, with a "No Parking" restriction along the western side of the street. The existing parking restriction along the western side facilitates unhindered two way traffic movements as the carriageway of The Strand is only 8m wide.

The resident is proposing that if The Strand between Universal Street and George Street, Mortdale was restricted to one way, then parking can be facilitated on both sides of The Strand as only one way traffic flow will need to be accommodated.

Pitt Street, Mortdale is restricted to one-way travelling west between Morts Road and The Strand and Macquarie Street is restricted to one-way travelling East between Morts Road and The Strand.

The resident has further suggested that more on-street parking can be made available in Mortdale, if the one-way restriction along Macquarie Street and Pitt Street were extended to Boundary Road and the 45 degree angle parking arrangement is extended.

It is advised that while the resident's suggestions have merit in increasing the availability of parking in Mortdale, the proposed one-way restriction in The Strand would not only restrict access to the residents in the street, it would also increase traffic movements in Morts Road and Boundary Road. Such an arrangement will increase traffic congestion during morning and afternoon peak times along both Morts Road and Boundary Roads.



COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the request to restrict The Strand , Mortdale to a one-way street be denied.

THAT the request to extend the one-way restriction in Pitt Street and Macquarie Street up to Boundary Road be denied

FURTHER THAT the resident be advised of Council's decision.

Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File10/241



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Marist College Penshurst and Punchbowl Buses requesting Council to establish a Bus Zone directly outside the Marist College Penshurst gates on Victoria Avenue, Mortdale.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the No Stopping restriction west of the existing raised pedestrian crossing in Victoria avenue Mortdale be shortened to 10m as required by the Road Rules.

THAT a 20m Bus Zone be established outside Marist College Penshurst in Victoria Avenue Mortdale

THAT the existing 20m No Parking. 8.00am-9.30am-2.30pm-3.30pm, School Days restriction be retained.

FURTHER THAT the Principal of Marist College, Penshurst and Punchbowl Bus Company be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Marist College Penshurst and Punchbowl Bus Company requesting Council to establish a Bus Zone directly outside the Marist College Penshurst gates on Victoria Avenue, Mortdale.

The School Principal has advised Council that during 2010, Marist College has made a significant effort to remove its students from congregating in the Penshurst Commercial Centre area before and after School. This has been achieved by encouraging the students to catch the Route 493 bus home from the Bus Zones located in Ocean Street, Mortdale.

Accordingly the School Principal has requested Council to consider establishing a Bus Zone directly outside the school gates in Victoria Avenue to further help the school with their efforts to contain students close to the school and ensure that they catch the Route 493 Punchbowl Bus from outside the school rather than from bus stops in Penshurst Street.

It is advised that currently existing outside Marist College is a 23m "No Stopping" restriction to provide clear sight distance on the departure side of an existing raised pedestrian crossing installed to help students of the college cross Victoria Avenue in a safe manner. It is further advised that the 23m No Stopping restriction is followed by a 20m No Parking 8.00am 9.30am, 2.30pm-3.30pm, School Days utilised as a drop off and pick up of students in the morning and afternoon school times.

According to Road Rule No 172 Stopping on or near a pedestrian crossing (except at an intersection)


As per the above road rules the existing "No Stopping" restriction is in excess of 13m to the required road rules. Accordingly it is recommended that the existing restrictions be rearranged so that the following restrictions can be accommodated:

The attached drawing illustrates the above restrictions. The above rearrangement will move the existing 20m "No Parking" restriction by 8m to the west resulting in the loss of approximately 1.5 unrestricted car parking spaces.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the No Stopping restriction west of the existing raised pedestrian crossing in Victoria Avenue Mortdale be shortened to 10m as required by the Road Rules.

THAT a 20m Bus Zone be established outside Marist College Penshurst in Victoria Avenue Mortdale

THAT the existing 20m No Parking. 8.00am-9.30am-2.30pm-3.30pm, School Days restriction be retained.

TAC143-10CORRECTION OF INFORMATION IN REGARDS TO REPORT TAC112-10 - BUS ZONE OUTSIDE 96 VICTORIA AVENUE, MORTDALE
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File08/1559



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report is to clarify the contents of the report TAC112-10 "VICTORIA AVENUE, MORTDALE - REQUEST TO FORMALISE EXISTING BUS STOPS" appeared in the agenda of the Traffic Advisory Committee of 5 August 2010.



AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT the report by Senior Traffic Engineer be recieved and noted.


REPORT DETAIL

The report TAC112-10 "VICTORIA AVENUE, MORTDALE - REQUEST TO FORMALISE EXISTING BUS STOPS" stated, in part, that


The Committee at its meeting on 5 August 2010 considered this matter and recommended to signpost the Bus Zones at this location to comply with the Road Rules. Subsequently, Council at its meeting on 25 August 2010 endorsed the Committee's recommendation.

Accordingly all the residents who made representations to Council, including the resident of 96 Victoria Avenue, Mortdale were advised of Council's decision. Subsequently, the resident of 96 Victoria Avenue, Mortdale has written Council stating, in part, that

She has formally requested to correct the Traffic Advisory Committee minutes of the 5 August 2010 meeting and the minutes from the Council meeting on 25 August 2010 to more accurately reflect her original concerns and to make it clear that she never requested the formalisation of the bus stop signposting

It is advised that in addition to the representations from the resident of 96 Victoria Avenue, Council received a number of representations from the local residents (commuters), who use the street as a long term parking area, in regard to the signage at the subject 'Bus Stops'. The residents complained that 'Bus Stop' signs on utility poles are not clearly visible; and as a result motorists park within the bus zone mistakenly and get penalised. Some of these residents have accused Council stating that Council intentionally does not sign post the 'Bus Zone's as a ‘revenue collection mechanism’ by penalizing motorists who mistakenly park close to Bus Stops.

Accordingly, the intention of the Traffic Report TAC112-10 was to formalize the above 'Bus Zone's to improve the visibility of the bus stops.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT the report by Senior Traffic Engineer be recieved and noted.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - SD

THAT the report by Senior Traffic Engineer be recieved and noted.

TAC144-10WARRAWEE PLACE, BEVERLY HILLS - REQUEST FOR NO PARKING, WEDDING AND FUNERAL VEHICLES EXCEPTED
Report Author/sSenior Traffic Engineer, Ms S Selim
File10/398



EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Council has received a representation from Beverly Hills Baptist Church requesting Council to installing a "No Parking, wedding and funeral vehicles excepted" restriction in Warrawee Place Beverly Hills.


AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

THAT 12m (two car spaces) of "No Parking, Wedding and Funeral Vehicles Excepted" restriction be installed outside Beverly Hills Baptist Church at 9 Warrawee Place, Beverly Hills.

FURTHER THAT Beverly Hills Baptist be advised of Council's decision.


REPORT DETAIL

Council has received a representation from Beverly Hills Baptist Church requesting Council to consider installing a "No Parking, wedding and funeral vehicles excepted" restriction outside their Church at 9 Warrawee Place, Beverly Hills.

The Church Secretary has advised Council that due to the Church's close proximity to Beverly Hills Railway Station, parking outside their Church is always occupied by commuters. She further advised that this discourages their seniors group of their congregation from attending various church meetings and in turn limits the church's community ministries.

Accordingly the Church Secretary has requested Council to consider installing 12m (two car parking spaces) of "No Parking, wedding and funeral vehicles excepted" restriction to facilitate drop off and pick up of passengers during weekdays and for Funeral and Wedding services on weekends.

It is advised that site inspection revealed that the Church does not have any means of an off street parking.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION - TAC

THAT 12m (two car spaces) of "No Parking, Wedding and Funeral Vehicles Excepted" restriction be installed outside Beverly Hills Baptist Church at 9 Warrawee Place, Beverly Hills.

FURTHER THAT Beverly Hills Baptist be advised of Council's decision.
