Concerned Resident started this petition to City of Stirling councillers.

We, the undersigned do strongly OPPOSE the proposed relocation of the Hamer Park Clubrooms to Woodsome St, on the
following grounds:
1. SAFETY - The proposed relocation introduces significant safety and security risks to the operation of the Mount Lawley
Senior High School (MLSHS), and for the safety of pedestrians and cyclists using this area as a thoroughfare.
2. PARKING - The proposed relocation will require increased parking facilities, which cannot be provided with the real estate
restrictions around the Woodsome St location. The current proposal provides for only 12 additional parking bays, however
to cater for the intended utilisation, approximately 150 additional parking bays would be required.
3. TRAFFIC - The proposed relocation will further exacerbate traffic issues in Rookwood, Woodsome, Learoyd, Woodroyd,
Frances, Braeside, Ferrar and Thurston Streets. The proposed facilities will also have a detrimental effect on traffic flow
through Woodsome Street at peak school drop off and pick up times.
4. EVALUATION PROCESS - The City of Stirling have failed to provide sufficient information for community review, and in the
opinion of the undersigned, have failed to demonstrate that a sound evaluation process has occurred.
We, the undersigned:
a) Support the upgrade of both the Hamer Park and Moyle Pavilion clubroom facilities. However,
we DO NOT SUPPORT the PROPOSED RELOCATION of the Hamer Park clubrooms to Woodsome Street.
b) Request that BEFORE any further decisions are made on the development, the City adopt a more collaborative community
consultation process with all stakeholders in the project, including local residents, the MLSHS, Sports’ Clubs and Park users;
and possibly include the formation of a working group comprised of representatives of stakeholder groups.
