1. PETITIONS

1.1 REDEVELOPMENT OF THE FORMER HAIG STREET PRIMARY SCHOOL SITE IN THE OLYMPIA WARD

Miss Ava Fisher, Mr Matthew Keenan and Mr Shaun Macleod spoke on the item

A petition with 225 signatures has been received from residents in the Heidelberg Heights area. In addition, a related petition with 49 signatures has been received from children and young people in the Heidelberg Heights area. The petition prayer from residents in the Heidelberg Heights area is as follows: Banyule City Council is placing 32,000 square metres up for tender for development for medium density housing at the Haig Street Primary School site. There are currently no plans for retention of open space by the council, nor considerations for increased traffic in the surrounding roads. The project funds the Bellfield basketball refurbishment at the expense of the Heidelberg Heights neighborhood. We therefore request Banyule Council to: 1. Include a replacement park as part of any redevelopment of the Haig St Primary School

site. Any open space minimum requirements should be provided in the form of land rather than dollars. We believe that out of a 32,000 square meter site, 3,000 square meters is a reasonable request for open space and that the park should be accessible from both Haig and Bonar Streets.

2. That the surrounding blocks receive an upgrade to traffic controls such as speed bumps

and curves to keep our streets safe, particularly for children.

Resolution (CO2013/431)

That:

1. Council receives and notes the petition.

2. Council confirms its commitment to provide for regional and local recreational facilities including a new basketball/netball facility at the former Banksia Secondary School site.

3. Council adopts the open space proposal attached to this report on the basis that the cost impact is minimised by utilising the land set aside for the Elliott Street extension (1459m²) and an adjoining area of developable land (941m²) to the east providing a total open space area of 2400m².

4. Council establishes the public open as soon as possible with design and layout to be prepared prior to June 30th, 2014.

5. That council confirms that the future zoning be residential growth zone.

6. That a detail design of traffic management treatment incorporating traffic calming devises and beautification of the area in front of the shops on Haig Street also be prepared prior to June 30th 2014.

7 . That a further traffic management options be considered in adjoining streets to the former school site in response to the proposed residential redevelopment of the site. This should include Bonar Street, Monash Street, Law Street and Alfred Street.

8. Guidelines for the future development of the land consider a transition in heights from the development to 2 storeys immediately adjoining the existing adjoining dwellings to the

4.1 CARMICHAEL STREET, EAST IVANHOE - SPEED AND VOLUME CONCERNS

SUMMARY

At its meeting on 29 July 2013, Council raised a Notice of Motion requesting an investigation into the speed and volume of traffic along Carmichael Street, Ivanhoe East. A speed and volume survey completed in Carmichael Street in the week of 28 August 2013 to 3 September 2013 highlighted that the average daily traffic volume along the street was 2,040 vehicles per day, a 6% increase compared with volumes recorded in 2007. However, recorded vehicle speeds demonstrated the majority of vehicles travel well below the legal speed limit of 50km/h. Carmichael Street ranks low amongst the list of streets for future consideration for funding of traffic calming. Given the low traffic speeds recorded along the street, the installation of traffic calming devices to manage the speed of traffic travelling along Carmichael Street is not considered warranted at this time. However, considering the available road width and topography of Carmichael Street, road cushions are identified as the most suitable treatment for Carmichael Street if Council wishes to install traffic management measures.

Resolution (CO2013/434)

That: 1. The installation of traffic calming devices is not considered warranted in Carmichael

Street, Eaglemont, at this time. 2. A further speed and volume count be conducted in Carmichael Street, Eaglemont, over

the next 12 months to reassess this street.
