  • Asquith Park/Olearia Lane - Parking Restrictions - Outcomes

    CLOSED: This map consultation has concluded
    supporting image

    The consultation level was limited and inconclusive, with 4 in support, 3 against and 1 neutral. consultation responses included concerns over where workers would park, and confirmation of commuter use of the parking bays.

    Given the mixed response, administration did not provide a strong view, but recommended a limited application of the parking restrictions to 6 bays, leaving 2 bays available for all-day parking. This would discourage commuter use, whilst still leaving options for workers by encouraging turnover of parking bays.

    Council subsequently approved this approach for implementation at the Council meeting on 23 February 2016.

    Providing there parking restrictions will increase the functionality of the parking. This will create a turnover of bays so that a greater number of users can access them. This will provide a better amenity for residents in the area who are largely affected by long term parking.

  • Asquith Park/Olearia Lane - Parking Restrictions - Outcomes

    CLOSED: This map consultation has concluded

    Thank you for your feedback.

    There is a very high demand for short-term parking in and around the Mount Claremont Shopping Centre as the majority of bays are time restricted, with all-day parking available in the spaces adjacent to Asquith Park in Olearia Lane.

    As a result consideration is being given to changing the all-day spaces to restricted parking to provide additional parking for Shopping Centre users.

    The City is proposing to implement '4 hour' timed parking restrictions in the eight (8) adjacent to Asquith Park in Olearia Lane to apply between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday

    A report is being prepared for Council consideration during February/March 2016.

    Following community engagement and a Council Resolution, the City has installed a range of ParkFit fitness equipment at College Park, Princess Road, Nedlands. Almost 80% of respondents indicated the preference to the chosen location.

    This equipment complements the Youth Recreation Area and existing fitness equipment, catering for exercise to a wide range of muscle groups. Park users of various ages will enjoy the fitness and health benefits offered by this new installation. Small plaques give instructions on the correct techniques.

    In keeping with the aesthetics of the park and the public’s desire to keep College Park as natural as possible, the equipment was installed in-ground, rather than constructing several concrete bases.

    The road resurfacing and associated works are scheduled to commence late February/early March 2016.
