    1. PETITIONS

    1.1 CAR PARKING IN THE IVANHOE SHOPPING AREA

    Mr Ross Failla, Mr Roger Fyfe and Mr Kevin Biaggini spoke on the item. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY A petition with 135 signatures has been received, requesting the reinstatement of all-day parking in the Ivanhoe Activity Centre. The petition prayer is as follows:

    We, the below named and signed, petition the Banyule City Council to reinstate the all day parking zones behind the Upper Heidelberg Road shopping strip as previously provided. There is insufficient all day parking for the amount of workers in the street who also have to contend with train users. The introduction of 4 hour parking zones does nothing to free up parking in these areas but simply acts as a means to "catch out" the people who work to make Upper Heidelberg Road a vibrant hub. The new parking restrictions will also result in increased parking in residential areas and well as increased road traffic from people unnecessarily shifting their cars. We would appreciate the above request be instituted immediately.

    It is proposed that all-day parking options are assessed as part of the future Ivanhoe Parking Plan. A copy of the cover letter for the petition is provided as Attachment 1.

    Resolution (CO2015/37)

    That Council: 1. Receives and notes the petition. 2. Consider the assessment of all-day parking options as part of the future Ivanhoe

    Parking Plan.

    3. Informs the primary petitioner of this resolution.

    4.1 CONSENT TO REMOVE VEGETATION FROM 5 WHITELAW COURT, EAGLEMONT

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Council has received a request for consent to the removal of trees at 5 Whitelaw Court, Eaglemont. The trees in question are environmental weeds, and are considered to be hazardous by Councils Development Planning Arborist. No planning permit is required for their removal, however a restrictive covenant registered on Title provides that they cannot be removed without the written permission of the Mayor Councillors and Citizens of the City of Heidelberg. It is recommended that Council gives consent to enable the removal of the trees.

    Resolution (CO2015/38)

    That Council write to the property owner of 5 Whitelaw Court, Eaglemont, providing permission for the removal of five (5) sugar gums (Eucalyptus cladocalyx), and the undertaking of works to other trees on the property, to the satisfaction of Council Moved: Cr Jenny Mulholland Seconded: Cr Rick Garotti CARRIED
