    1.1 PETITION FOR A SEAT ON WATERDALE ROAD, IVANHOE

    Author: Luke Sheers - Engineering Student, City Development

    Ward: Griffin

    File: F2015/57

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY A petition with 125 signatures has been received, requesting the provision of a seat near the entrance to Bryant Reserve Ivanhoe. The petition prayer is as follows:

    Residents of Waterdale Road and adjoining streets are seeking the provision of a seat near the entrance to Bryant Reserve Ivanhoe. The principal purpose of the seat is to assist those elderly residents, who are no longer able or permitted to drive, to rest during their walk to or from the Ivanhoe Shopping Centre.

    The provision of a seat is consistent with the Banyule City Plan 2012-2017 and the Ivanhoe Structure Plan and is supported.

    RECOMMENDATION

    That Council:

    1. Receives and notes the petition. 2. Investigates and installs seating on the east side of Waterdale Road, in front of

    Bryant Reserve, between Ailsa Grove and Lowe Street within current budget.

    3. Informs the primary petitioner of this resolution.

    DISCUSSION The petition requests the provision of seating in front of Bryant Reserve, adjacent to Waterdale Road, Ivanhoe, as shown in Figure 1. Currently there is no seating along Waterdale Road for the use of pedestrians walking to the Ivanhoe Shopping Centre. There are two seats located in Bryant Reserve; however these seats are not visible from Waterdale Road and require pedestrians to walk up a ramp. In line with Councils City Plan 2012-1017 the provision of seating around the municipality is encouraged, in particular when considering Banyules ageing population. Similarly Councils Ivanhoe Structure Plan outlines the need to provide better access and public amenity of open spaces with or linked to activity areas such as the Ivanhoe Shopping Centre. The cover letter of the petition (Attachment 1) identifies three options for the placement of seating:

    A setback behind the footpath into the existing retaining wall along Bryant Reserve.

    In the nature strip of Waterdale Road.

    Ordinary Meeting of Council - 27 April 2015 Page 4

    In the grassed area behind the retaining wall.

    Figure 1: Proposed Location of Seat

    It is proposed that seating be installed on the east side of Waterdale Road, in front of Bryant Reserve, between Ailsa Grove and Lowe Street within current budget. The exact location of the seat will be in the nature strip in front of Bryant Reserve (as described in Attachment 1) subject to further investigation considering the cost, time and extent of works required.

    CONCLUSION

    Provision of seating to encourage better access and public amenity in open space is encouraged by both the Council City Plan 2012-2017 and the Ivanhoe Structure Plan. Hence it is recommended that this petition be received and noted by Council. Furthermore it is proposed that Council investigates and installs seating in Waterdale Road in front of Bryant Reserve within current budget.

    1.2 PETITION TO BUILD A SKATE PARK IN PETRIE PARK, MONTMORENCY

    Author: Lucia Brennan - Recreation Planner, Community Programs

    Ward: Hawdon

    File: F20015/3

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY A petition with fifty-five (55) signatures has been received from residents of Banyule and surrounding municipalities. The petition prayer is as follows: We the undersigned request Banyule Council to build a Skate Park in Petrie Park Montmorency and include the Skate Park in the Petrie Park Master Plan.

    RECOMMENDATION

    1. That Council receives and notes the petition. 2. That the petition be considered as a submission for the Petrie Park/Rattray

    Reserve Master Plan.

    DISCUSSION

    Council is currently undertaking a master plan of Petrie Park and Rattray Reserve, Montmorency. As part of the preliminary community consultation process, officers have sought community thoughts and ideas for the future of these reserves. A community drop-in session at Petrie Park was held on Saturday 21st March 2015 and it was at this session that the petition for a skate park was provided to the Ward Councillor for consideration as part of the Petrie Park/Rattray Reserve Master Plan. The suitability of a new skate park within Petrie Park will be explored through the master plan process. There are presently two skate parks within Banyule and these are located at Malahang Reserve in Heidelberg West and Kalparrin Gardens in Greensborough. There are no current plans in place for additional skate parks within Banyule.

    4.1 PEDESTRIAN MOVEMENTS - ROSANNA RAILWAY STATION

    Author: Mardi Cuthbert - Project Engineer, City Development

    Ward: Ibbott

    File: F2014/57

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Concern has been expressed about the safety of pedestrians crossing Lower Plenty Road, Rosanna at the level crossing. Investigations have confirmed that pedestrians cross the road at several different locations, particularly while the level crossing barriers are down and traffic is stopped. The Lower Plenty Road level crossing is listed under the State Government Level Crossing Removal Project. Under the project, the crossing is one of 50 level crossings to be removed over the next eight years. Investigations have indicated that a number of pedestrians cross Lower Plenty Road between Ellesmere Parade and Turnham Avenue while the boom gates are down and traffic is stopped. Of most concern, are movements at Ellesmere Parade where there is a potential vehiclepedestrian conflict point. Lower Plenty Road is an Arterial Road under the control and management of VicRoads. It is proposed that VicRoads be approached to consider suitable pedestrian safety improvements.

    RECOMMENDATION

    That Council: 1
