WE DO NOT NEED PARKING RESTRICTIONS IN OUR QUIET STREETS
Recently the Council asked for feedback from residents on implementing 3P parking from 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday in suburban streets along the coast strip in areas including Mermaid Beach, Mermaid Waters and Broadbeach Waters. Most of these streets are not near the highway or high-rise buildings and do not attract event or shopping centre parking ever, with many being quiet culdesacs kilometres away from venues.
In some areas it may be necessary to protect residents but in others it is not. It will impact on families, clubs and restaurants in many ways, limiting people from staying at venues. Nipper parents around Nobby's beach, Mermaid and Miami for instance will this season be faced with fines if parking in streets around their club for more than 3 hours and will be forced to move their cars or leave Nippers early.
Shoppers are entitled to 5 hours free parking at Pacific Fair so why would they bother parking 1 - 2km's away for 3 hours outside of our homes?
If we don't respond and send in feedback by the 3rd August then the parking zones will be enforced. This is our chance to stop this change or it will be in force for the next 2 years.
Family, friends, tradesmen and other visitors parking outside your home will face fines if staying more than 3 hours.
You will need to apply for permits to park outside your own home and in some areas resident permits will not be issued.
If you decide to park outside your home and do not have a permit you may be fined.
MOST OF THE STREETS IN QUESTION ARE EMPTY ON A DAILY BASIS SO THERE IS NO REASON FOR THIS BLANKET CHANGE. LIMITED PARKING IS BEING VIEWED BY MANY RESIDENTS AS REVENUE RAISING BY THE COUNCIL. MORE JOBS WILL BE CREATED BY EMPLOYING MORE PARKING INSPECTORS TO PATROL THESE STREETS.
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION WHICH WILL GENERATE A LETTER TO MAYOR TOM TATE TO VOICE YOUR OPINION ON THIS ISSUE AND STATE WHICH STREET AND SUBURB YOU LIVE IN.
IF POSSIBLE EMAIL PHOTOS TO PAUL TAYLOR DIVISION 6 COUNCILLOR SHOWING THE EMPTY STREETS BETWEEN 9AM AND 5PM MONDAY TO FRIDAY AND SAY NO TO THIS CHANGE. REQUEST A FORM TO COMPLETE. DO THIS BEFORE THE 3RD AUGUST TO HAVE YOUR SAY. HE IS CURRENTLY WELCOMING LEGITIMATE FEEDBACK.
