What new devil is this?
Have you taken a walk down Joesph St lately? Seems a new style of ‘on nature strip parking’ has been popping up. Is it because developers aren’t allowing for enough parks on site and off the street?
These concrete squares have appeared in Joesph St, they run from the road over the nature strip.
They have appeared on the small hill where it may be dangerous to park on the road. And there is obviously no room for residents to park within their properties.
The ‘parking spots’ are very close to well established trees, and under their drip-line, meaning they are over the roots of these trees.
No longer beautiful green nature strips, we have concrete car parks.
This is public land, it should be green like the rest of Joesph St, which looks like this:
Ballarat East is known for its green streets, the trees, lack of kerbing. This new concrete germ is changing the nature of our streets into concrete and carparks. Please comment below.
We have a request in with council for more information.
