Stop the removal of 6 residential car parking spaces on Glenlyon Road
We, the undersigned, petition Merri-bek City Council to:
Not remove 6 residential on street car spaces from the north side of Glenylon Road at the intersection of Ewing Street.
Why is this important?
The proposed changes removes direct access for residents to their homes with no provision for additional car parking and places further strain on an intersection the council is already asking to much of.
The removal of car parking out the front of homes directly affects only a few residents but it does discriminate and will have a dramatic affect on liveability for these residents with an unreasonable expectation that people don't need car parking. It will also indirectly affect residents in the surrounds with reduced parking available and no provision for replacement spots.
In addition, removing these spaces will make no improvement to this intersection. The amount of money Merri-bek has spent on this intersection to only make it more difficult for drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and residents to manoeuvre through. It will speed up traffic along this stretch of road making it more dangerous.
