Gilchrist's Pharmacy started this petition to Andrew Constance- Transport Minister

This is a petition against the new proposed and extended clearways and alternative business parking on Forest Road/ Stoney Creek Road NSW 2207. 

We Strongly believe that the introduction of clearways in this area will not only be a hindrance to local businesses but also a huge hazard and inconvenience to the large number of elderly customers which use the half hour parking in the bexley business district to easily access shops and healthcare (Medical centre, podiatrist, dentist and Pharmacy). Elderly residents who struggle walking the shortest of distances will be forced to park further from healthcare resources which might hinder them from timely access to healthcare and not to mention, may cause them harm due to increased risk of falls and injury. 

Additionally, over the years in bexley, business owners have worked tirelessly to increase influx of customers and the introduction of this clearway will undoubtedly cause a massive loss to the already struggling business district. Businesses here have introduced a free home delivery service to customers who find it hard to find parking or are unable to walk due to age, injury or other health conditions.

Staff themselves find it hard to find parking in the surrounding streets and reduction of parking spots will cause more congestion and fewer parking spots in the corner streets.

Also, as you may not be aware, the bexley shopping strip is used mainly by people as they drive past, on the way to their home, airports or events in the area. If you decided to reinforce this clearway, people will not go out of their way to stop and access our businesses as it would be a huge inconvenience. 

We believe, Mr Transport Minister that this proposal would make YOU solely responsible/Liable to any business loss which local businesses may incur as as result. 

We ask that alternative arrangements are made in regards to easing congestion in the area. Killing our business, cannot be the solution.
