OPPOSITION TO PARKING METERS AT MONTMORENCY STATION HEATS UP

Eltham Labor MP Vicki Ward has submitted petitions from Montmorency residents opposing Banyule Council’s proposal to install parking meters near the train station in Montmorency.

More than 180 residents signed the petition, which called on Banyule to rule out parking meters for Montmorency.

Ms Ward this week visited Banyule Council to deliver the petitions.

Council will consider the petition at its next ordinary meeting, on Monday July 16.

Quotes attributable to Eltham Labor MP Vicki Ward

“Banyule Council needs to get behind the community and the traders of Montmorency and help with car parking solutions rather than creating additional problems”.

“VicTrack is already working on the new car parks to go in at Montmorency station and are currently working through the design with Banyule Council”.

“These additional car parks at Montmorency station should not be seen as an opportunity for a cash grab by Banyule council for those car parks near the station.

“Charging for parking on Binns Street is unfair to local residents and customers.  Banyule Council should reverse this decision”
