    DISCUSSION

    At its meeting on 3 February 2014, Council resolved (CO2014/5) to give public notice of its intention to sell 1-3 McKenzie Court, Greensborough. A public notice of Councils intention to sell was advertised in the Diamond Valley Leader on 12 February 2014, letters were sent to surrounding residents and a notice placed on the site. The period of public notice provides the opportunity for community feedback as required by Section 189 of the Local Government Act 1989 (the Act) and to hear any submissions received in response to the public notice under Section 223 of the Act. Submissions close on 12 March 2014. After this a report will be presented to Council to hear and consider submissions received and to determine whether or not to sell the land. The petition will be considered as a submission in this process.

    RECOMMENDATION

    That Council:

    1. Receives and notes the petition.

    2. Consider this petition as a submission in response to the Notice of Intention to sell 1-3 McKenzie Court, Greensborough.

    3. Advise the person who submitted the petition accordingly.

    1.2 MAIN ROAD AND PARA ROAD INTERSECTION, LOWER PLENTY - PEDESTRIAN CROSSING CONCERNS

    Author: Sanjev Sivananthanayagam - Transport Engineer, City Development

    Ward: Hawdon

    File: F2014/141

    A petition with 304 signatures has been received in relation to pedestrian crossing concerns at Main Road and Para Road intersection, Lower Plenty. The petition prayer is as follows: Dangerous Crossing Cnr Para Rd/Main Rd Lower Plenty Incident 1 Around June 2013 [name removed for privacy reasons], was struck down whilst crossing (with green man signal) holding her child (under 2 years old). Luckily she sustained only minor injuries and her child was unhurt as she protected him in the fall. This was reported to VicRoads. VicRoads assured her that they would look at the area and make an assessment. They were going to cut the grasses as they obscure the view of waiting pedestrians from the drivers sight. However, this did not happen. Incident 2 Monday 3rd of Feb 2014 [name removed for privacy reasons], was crossing with her son aged 5 going to Lower Plenty School in the morning when a car came screeching to a halt and just touched her leg. She had to push/throw her son back on to the pavement to keep him from harm. Concerns relate to vehicles entering Para Road from Main Road via the left turn slip lane on a red signal, whilst pedestrians are crossing at the pedestrian operated signals. No cover letter was provided with the petition.

    OFFICER COMMENT

    The matter has been raised with Council previously on four separate occasions, between February 2012 to July 2013. As VicRoads is the road authority for Main Road and Para Road, concerns were forwarded to VicRoads on all occasions. On two occasions, VicRoads indicated to Council that plants and shrubs at the intersection required trimming/removing in order to improve sight distance. On both occasions Councils Parks Department was contacted to carry out the trimming/removing of plants and shrubs, as required. These works were immediately carried out by Councils Parks Department. Whilst trimming/removing of plants and shrubs has improved the visibility of pedestrians crossing in this location, the instances of vehicles driving through on a red signal still remains a concern.

    1.3 PETITION TO RETAIN AND REOPEN BELLFIELD, HAIG STREET AND BANKSIA COLLEGE SCHOOL SITES

    Author: Michael Hutchison - Projects Coordinator, City Development

    Ward: Olympia

    File: F2013/940

    A petition with 75 signatures titled Reopen our Schools! Retain and reopen Bellfield, Haig Street and Banksia College School Sites! has been received from residents within Banyule and the greater Melbourne metropolitan area. The petition prayer is as follows:

    To the Mayor and Councillors of the Banyule City Council We the undersigned, residents and ratepayers of Banyule City wish to bring to the attention of Council the urgent need to reconsider and stop the subdivision and redevelopment of the three closed school sites. These assets need to be retained and returned to the community for education uses and purposes. Children in the area need access to good quality public education within walking distance from their homes. What happens if your family doesnt have a car or the means to travel? Should the three existing schools get developed for medium density housing; more families will need access to local schools. Schools are full to overflowing now; there are simply not enough schools.
