T1117 Item 8      VICTORIA ROAD, MARRICKVILLE – PROPOSED RAISED PEDESTRIAN CROSSING WITH MEDIAN ISLAND & KERB EXTENSION DESIGN PLAN (MARRICKVILLE WARD/NEWTOWN ELECTORATE/MARRICKVILLE LAC)

SUMMARY

 

A detailed design plan has been finalised for the proposal to upgrade the existing at-grade

pedestrian crossing in Victoria Road, Marrickville at its intersection with Edgeware Road as

part of the NSW Government’s Pedestrian Infrastructure Safety Around Schools Program and as part of the Marrickville East LATM study implementation. The proposal to upgrade the

existing at-grade pedestrian crossing to a new raised pedestrian crossing with a median

island and kerb extensions and associated signs and line markings will improve pedestrian

safety and traffic conditions at this location.

 

Consultation was undertaken with owners and occupiers of properties adjacent to Victoria

Road and Edgeware Road, regarding the proposal. A summary of the consultation results are presented in this report for consideration. It is recommended that the proposed detailed design plan be approved.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the design of the raised pedestrian crossing with a median island and kerb extensions and associated signs and line markings in Victoria Road, Marrickville, at the intersection of Edgeware Road (as per design plan No. 6185) be APPROVED.

 

 

DISCUSSION

 

The RMS representative expressed concern with the width of the proposed raised pedestrian crossing and the two traffic lanes on the departure of the proposed crossing and approach to Edgeware Road intersection. It was stated that this arrangement would potentially allow for a two lane approach to the proposed pedestrian crossing. The RMS representative suggested the design incorporate a kerb extension or kerb blister on approach to the crossing to reduce the road width.

 

Council Officers advised that the design will be revised to incorporate the suggested kerb blister treatment,  whilst also considering other issues on its placement such as drainage and turning movements out of Empire Lane.

 

It was agreed that a revised plan be distributed to Committee members via email for comment and support. The revised final design will then be submitted to Council for consideration.

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT the design of the raised pedestrian crossing in Victoria Road, Marrickville, at the intersection of Edgeware Road (as per design plan No. 6185) be revised to incorporate a kerb blister on the northbound approach to the raised pedestrian crossing to reduce the width of the crossing.

SUMMARY

T1117 Item 13    EDITH STREET, LEICHHARDT – RESIDENT PARKING SCHEME (LEICHHARDT WARD/BALMAIN ELECTORATE/LEICHHARDT LAC)

SUMMARY

 

Council has received correspondence from a number of residents of Edith Street (south of

Marion Street), raising concerns regarding increased parking demands generated by

residents, commuters, and employees/patrons of businesses in Marion Street.

 

This report provides the result of a resident parking scheme investigation in Edith Street,

Leichhardt.

 

Officer’s Recommendation:

 

THAT the proposed Resident Parking Scheme in Edith Street (South of Marion Street) not be supported at the present time due to less than 50% support received from the consulted residents.

 

 

DISCUSSION

 

Public speakers: Ms Judy Platt, Mr Will Platt, Mr Angus McInnes, residents of Edith Street (attended at 10.03am)

 

Ms Platt expressed her support for a Resident Parking Scheme in Edith Street and stated the following:

 

·         Density in the area has increased in the last 10 years due to new development which has caused problems with parking and safety in Edith Street.

·         A number of options were investigated by Council since the issues were first raised in 2012 and it was decided that a Residential Parking Scheme was the best option.

·         Council’s policy assumes that residents who did not respond to the survey are against a Resident Parking Scheme. However, residents that did not respond may not necessarily be against a Scheme.

 

Mr McInnes noted that:

 

·         there is an inconsistency with the operating times of a Resident Parking Scheme.

·         the survey to residents only referenced one timeframe for both sides of the street whilst the report indicated two timeframes.

·         the current policy assumes that no response means opposition to a Scheme.

 

(Ms Platt, Mr Platt and Mr McInnes left at 10.13am)

 

The current policy of the former Leichhardt LGA requires a 50% resident support rate from the area consulted in order to support a Resident Parking Scheme.

 

Committee members discussed as a compromise whether one side of the street could be treated with a Resident Parking Scheme as a trial. Council Officers advised that if a Scheme were to be implemented on one side of the street only, it would be recommended that the Scheme operate from ‘8am-10pm, Mon-Fri’ due to the street’s proximity to restaurants.

 

Council Officers advised that a review of the Resident Parking policies from the former Leichhardt, Ashfield and Marrickville Councils is planned for 2018 to create one policy for the Inner West.

 

Given the high parking occupancy levels in Edith Street, Committee members agreed to defer the item to provide the opportunity for residents to elicit additional support for a Resident Parking Scheme to meet Council’s current policy.

 

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT the matter be deferred for the receipt of additional support for a Resident Parking Scheme in Edith Street to meet Council’s policy.

 

For motion: Unanimous

 

 

 

T1117 Item 14    ELSWICK STREET, LEICHHARDT – RESIDENT PARKING SCHEME (LEICHHARDT WARD/BALMAIN ELECTORATE/LEICHHARDT LAC)

SUMMARY

 

Council has received correspondence from a number of residents of Elswick Street, raising

concerns regarding increased parking demands generated by long stay parking from non-residents and commuters.

 

This report provides the results of a residential parking scheme investigation in Elswick Street, Leichhardt.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

 

THAT the proposed Resident Parking Scheme in Elswick Street not be supported at the present time due to less than 50% support received from the consulted residents.

 

 

DISCUSSION

 

Public speaker: Ms Lesley Wilson (attended at 10.24am)

 

Ms Wilson stated that she supports a Resident Parking Scheme in Elswick Street and made the following comments:

 

·         This is the second time Council has proposed a Resident Parking Scheme in the street. The first time failed as less than 50% of residents indicated support and it has failed again for the same reason.

·         More than 50% of responses received were in favour of the Scheme. However, Council assumes that those who did not respond are opposed to implementing a Scheme.

·         She often has to park in Macaulay Street and Carlisle Street as parking in Elswick Street is often occupied by non-residents, which puts her at risk of fines as both those streets have timed parking.

 

(Ms Wilson left at 10.33am)

 

The current policy of the former Leichhardt LGA requires a support rate of 50% of residents surveyed in order to support introduction of a new Resident Parking Scheme.

 

Given the high parking occupancy levels in Elswick Street, Committee members agreed to defer the item to provide the opportunity for residents to elicit additional support for a Resident Parking Scheme to meet Council’s current policy.

 

 

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION

 

THAT the matter be deferred for the receipt of additional support for a Resident Parking Scheme in Elswick Street to meet Council’s policy.

 

For motion: Unanimous
