I intend to move a motion that will support the two way driveway link as described in Attachment 6 (at the back of the report).
At this point in time I believe that this option delivers what residents have requested, both a safe exit and entry point to Clarence Park from East Ave and a pocket park. It would require a further round of consultation with local stake holders, with a wider consultation area than previously used (East of Frederick St) and still have to be formally approved by Council after this has been completed. My motion will read as follows;
1.Kelvin Avenue between Frederick Street and East Avenue not be closed to through traffic
2.A revised design be prepared for Kelvin Avenue that includes a driveway link to maintain two-way vehicle access between East Avenue and Frederick Street with the remaining area not required for vehicle and pedestrian access to be landscaped
3.Community consultation be undertaken on the revised design and the outcome of the community consultation be reported to Council at its meeting on 12 December 2011.
4.The area of consultation to include all residents and businesses previously consulted and in addition, the residents of Culley Street, Francis Street between Frederick Street and Churchill Avenue, George Street between East Avenue and Churchill Avenue, William Street between Mills Street and George Street."
Your comments are most welcome.
I encourage all of you to post comments on this proposal.
