Safe parking for Berry street, Heidelberg

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Berry street is an organisation that helps women and children who have suffered through family violence. There are various services that a run through them. 

Recently the council fenced up the lawn area that clients and some staff used to park. This is largely due to residents around the area complaining about cars being parked on the lawn. Now the problem that residents and council do not understand is the safety risks they have put on staff and clients. As there is limited parking for staff underneath and little to no close street parking. This puts already at risk women and children in further harms way as they are having to walk further to the safety of the building. Leaving them open to harassment or worse from violent ex-partners or family members. 

In light of recent events where we have seen how unsafe the streets of Melbourne can be especially for women it is quite surprising that a council would choose to act before finding a satisfactory resolution that allows all parties to be safe and happy. 

Please sign this petition to help open up eyes and minds to provide a safe change for women needing access to this service.  

Thank you
