Tomorrow’s ODT lines up a story on local businesses considering legal action to rectify the city’s parking fiasco.
Got my letter from Cr Michael Guest yesterday regarding resident parking in Pitt Street…we’ve had meters installed right up to Queen Street corner. A number of residents are owner occupiers, doctors, hospital staff or long-term renters; and a number of properties have no offstreet parking available. There was no consultation prior to the changes.
And serving people (businesses, workers, students or residents) with a generic bloody council letter is worse than pathetic.
