Were proposing improvements in your area

We’ve received several complaints regarding drivers blocking driveways and parking incorrectly, making it difficult for cars to turn around at the head of the cul-de-sac and avoid collisions. 

We investigated these complaints and confirmed there are safety concerns:

  • Parked cars are obstructing driveways causing access issues for residents and emergency services.
  • We tried temporary monitoring of the area and issued infringement notices for illegal parking, but we found that drivers would leave for a while then reappear, further frustrating residents.

Were proposing to:

  • Install angle parking in the middle of the cul-de-sac head. This would create 9 new parking spaces. This makes it much easier for cars to move in and out of parking spaces, lessening the likelihood of a collision while making it easier for drivers to stay within the lines of their parking space.
  • Install no stopping at all times (broken yellow lines) along the cul-de-sac head. This clears access to residents’ driveways and ensures the safe turning of vehicles.
