We are local residents living in Charles street. We need your help to Vote NO and stop the proposed parking restrictions on Charles Street and Charles Lane. The proposed parking restrictions will require a $40 parking permit for each of your household's vehicles every 2 years for residents only.
Most dwellings on Charles Street only have limited access to 1 off-street car park and do rely heavily on the on-street parking for daily use. The proposed parking restrictions will limit your flexibility and use of the street.
Your visiting friends and family, businesses, service contractors and are not eligible for the parking permits and will require to move their vehicle every couple of hours.
In addition to the petition, please submit your feedback form to Council (which came in the mail) and email Council at email@example.com to show your support of no parking restrictions. If Council do not receive our formal feedback by 24th September 2021 the proposed parking restrictions may be put in place permanently.
Timed parking means that cars will still park on the street but cause more vehicle traffic from more movements and congestion throughout the day. As well as, increasing congestion of nearby streets such as little Charles Street, Mary Street, Oak Avenue and Queen Street.
Residents on Charles street could pay up to $70,000 (over 10 years) in parking permits for their vehicles to Council if the restrictions are implemented.
Thank you for taking the time to show interested in this cause.
Why is this important?
Charles Street and Charles Lane already is a low speed and low traffic environment and supports mixed-use activity such as cycling and walking. We do not need changes to the parking limits or restrictions on the street.
