Despite widespread opposition from our Lindfield residents and business community, Ku-ring-Gai council is in the final stages of approving the two-level underground carpark with 100 commuter and only 80 short term spaces.
What this means for you:
- We currently have 136 short term car spaces which is not enough to cope with the current demand.
- Our local community will have to park in the surrounding streets to use the ammenities whilst commuters take the prime village car spaces.
- Previously we had 152 spaces until Council sold off 16 spaces in Havilah Lane to the developers.
- The proposed new kiosk on the Village Green has been allocated a further 10 spaces, therefore, we need a minimum of 162 short term spaces to maintain the supply we have been used to.
- 162 spaces doesn’t even take future growth into account. Imagine if we only get 80!
- The State government is on our side, with local member Jonathan O’Dea being very vocal in not accepting anything less than 136 short term spaces.
What you can do:
Council is meeting on Tuesday 14th November 2017, to finalise the plans. If you do not want the current proposal to go ahead please email: firstname.lastname@example.org Every voice will help in reminding council that they are representatives of our local community interests and not their own.
