Petition Tag - parking
Parking on the south side of Seaside Way, east of Linden Ave., was eliminated a few years ago. Residents on Ocean Avenue currently have few choices for street parking.
Parking will become even more restricted as residential buildings, such as the Shoreline Gateway Project, are added along East Ocean Blvd.
Some of the few parking spaces available on Seaside Way are currently used by visitors to avoid paying parking fees. Using resident-only placards will increase the revenue in city-owned parking garages.
I was one of the many unfortunate festival goers who was the subject of the councils shameful parking ticket 'frenzy' on Sat 1st June 2013 at the yearly Edinburgh 'Meadow's festival. There should be some leniency given by the council on occasions such as this, we should all stand up and demand they be abolished.
We pay enough taxes on the roads. It's not often we get a 'free' festival where everyone in the community has a chance to get together and enjoy some festivities. One day a year is all we are asking.
We pay parking all year round, it's time the council gave a little back. Edinburgh has been plagued with roadworks, diversions, longer waits, not to mention the TRAMS! for years now.
Inject FUN into Edinburgh not FINES.
Help us increase the parking areas within Graves Park, Sheffield.
What's the point of making the park so appealing, and then stopping you from getting in!
Hi, I am a local resident of Norton and I have been working closely with Sheffield Councillor Ian Auckland (Graves Park ward Cllr and Shadow Cabinet ~ including transport) to try and increase the number of parking spaces for the people who would like to visit Graves Park, Sheffield’s largest park.
The car parking at Graves Park is totally inadequate.
With the newly opened large playground and animal farm, there are simply not enough parking spaces to meet the volume of cars that come to visit the park, especially at weekends and in the summer months.
We propose the large grassed area next to the top car park (off Hemsworth Road) could easily be extended to house dozens more cars, with no detrimental effect to the parks vast grassed areas.
This would stop people driving round and around with limited success trying to find a free spot , before driving out of the park and in desperation trying to park on one of the few side roads or on busy Hemsworth Road. Hemsworth Road is a busy main road and can be very dangerous. One side of the road already has double yellow lines and on the other side a high verge. It is used by buses, Lorries and very fast emergency service vehicles. Cars that park on Hemsworth road block the road and reduce the Road to a single lane. I have seen small children wander onto the road, whilst parents have been unloading prams, etc., from the boot of their car. The cars park so tightly together those oncoming cars cannot see between the cars. Also vehicles often drive on the narrow curb on Hemsworth Road to pass each other. This is also very dangerous; not only for the park visitors but to the local residents (some are very elderly and cannot move very quickly).
We love our beautiful park and love visitors to come and enjoy the park, but to what cost?
Please help us do something about the parking within Graves Park.
Traffic and parking is a growing concern for drivers. Drivers are impeded by delays in their routine commutes and spend an uncomfortably long period of time searching for parking spaces at stores and workplaces.
The main cause is solo driving, the act of driving with no accompanying passengers. Solo drivers take up passenger seats and whole parking spaces, amenities that could easily accommodate four or more people at a time.
Also, it is unfair to motorists for one motorcycle to occupy an entire parking space when two can easily fit into one.
The Radnor Estate has recently submitted amended plans to build a 59 dwelling housing estate on land currently occupied by Folkestone Garden Centre and close to Grade II listed Ingles Manor and historically termed Ingles Meadow.
Approaching 100 individuals and groups have submitted objections on the SDC website and a group of concerned local residents have already collected over a thousand signatures on a handwritten petition, which they intend to present to the Shepway Development Control Committee before it meets to determine the planning application.
There has been a garden centre on the site since the early 1970’s. When planning permission was originally sought for the Garden Centre, the amenity value for local residents was emphasized. The town centre location means it is accessible on foot or by public transport and it also draws a huge number of visitors from outside Folkestone. The parkland setting is a green oasis in the middle of the town, an important centre for the community and a haven for wild life, complete with badger setts. There is widespread distress at the prospect of losing Folkestone Garden Centre and the popular “Blossoms” café. Folkestone Town Council policy 3, which is a constraint on the site’s development, makes provision for keeping important groups of trees. Despite this the plan is to fell over 60 of them.
Grade II listed Ingles Manor dates back to the late 17th or early 18th century when it was constructed as a farmhouse and a number of farm outbuildings still exist. It currently houses the Channel Business Centre. According to council policy, any development should respect Grade II listed Ingles Manor and the special nature of the conservation area and yet 3 storey town houses, 11 metres high, are proposed in front of Ingles Manor, dramatically changing the nature of this part of the Conservation Area.
The Draft Core Strategy document for Shepway states that the area which includes the proposed development site, entitled the central/west development arc, provides for some residential development provided it can be justified by enabling the full commercial potential of the area to be realized. 70 people are currently employed here but this number may reduce dramatically if the application is given the go ahead.
The site is bordered by Jointon Road and Castle Hill Avenue which are in the next phase of the parking scheme introduced to ease congestion. The sewers on Castle Hill Avenue and Shorncliffe Road flood after heavy rain, making life difficult for pedestrians and drivers. There have been a number of road accidents in the section of Castle Hill Avenue which will carry increased traffic if the proposed development goes ahead.
Jacksonville Beach residents pay taxes and should not be required to pay additional fees for parking.
Parking permits should be made available to all residents of Jacksonville Beach who wish to park at with beach without fee, fine or penalty.
Workspace plc, owners of Faircharm Trading Estate, wish to maximise the potential of their site by building residential units on the waterfront of Deptford Creek. They claim to be top providers of employment space, but rather than upgrade the present buildings (which their architects have drawn up feasible plans for), they admit it would be "a missed opportunity" not to capitalise on the riverside aspect and build luxury apartments.
Crossfields residents and other stakeholders on Creekside will lose views and sunlight once the development is built, whilst three years of construction will bring dust and pollution and turn Creekside into a dangerous road for all users and residents.
Only 28 parking spaces are provided – Crossfields already provides free parking for Faircharm, Lewisham College, APT, Laban, Cockpit, Tidemill, high street and Wavelengths users. Workspace also describe Crossfields's private roads (the upkeep of which tenants pay for) as a public pathway to transport links and Deptford High Street.
Many of the existing creative businesses will not be rehoused in the new employment spaces because of their light industrial activities, even though this is a designated business area, with few other such spaces available in the borough. The business space will be reduced by half and house only residential-friendly office-based businesses. Other tenants will not be able to afford to stay.
The ecology of the Creek is threatened by the increase in illumination from electric light, whilst Crossfields residents on Creekside and APT artists will lose sunlight.
Workspace threaten to close the site down if they do not get their way.
NB: Please use a relevant address if you work or live on Creekside.
STOP BANDIĆU I NJEGOVIM TALIBANIMA
Prije 5 godina pokrenuli smo peticiju protiv TAXI monopola u Zagrebu. Naš neprijatelj je bio Milan Bandić sa svojim Udruženjem autotaksi prijevoznika Grada Zagreba. Cijene taksi prijevoza su bile dvostruko veće od današnjih. Monopol je ukinut, a neprijatelj je potučen, zahvaljujući volji Gradske skupštine na čelu s pok. Borisom Špremom. Naša Peticija doprinjela je da danas svaki građanin u Zagrebu može koristiti taksi prijevoz po razumnim cijenama.
Zadnjih 10 godina Bandić je učvrstio jedinstveni bastion pljačke i terorizma. Unutar famoznog poduzeća Zagrebački holding d.o.o., čije kadrove je imenovao isključivo Bandić, izraslo je svemoćno poduzeće ZAGREBPARKING d.o.o., koje je postalo sinonim terorizma i pljačke u Gradu. Direktor Zagrebparkinga bio je cijelo vrijeme Bandićev zemljak i prijatelj zloglasni Mate Kraljević, trenutno voditelj službe organizirane špijunaže putem sistema videokamera na području cijelog Grada. Zagrebparking je udeseterostručio promet u zadnjih 10 godina, a zapošljava tisuće suradnika koji naplaćuju kazne ili kako ih sada zovu karte za cjelodnevni parking. Svi ovi zaposlenici Zagrebparkinga kao i većina zaposlenika u Zagrebačkom holdingu predstavljaju ogromnu glasačku mašineriju Milana Bandića. Prva i najskuplja parkirna zona proširena je na veliki dio grada, a najmanje prekoračenje vremena parkinga naplaćuje se 200 kn(!!). Naplata drakonskih kazni zbog minimalnog prekoračenja parkirnog vremena ne postoji nigdje u svijetu i predstavlja organiziranu pljačku urbane mafije. Pored pljačke s „cjelodnevnim parkirnim kartama“ Zagrebparking raspolaže ogromnom flotom specijalnih vozila za uklanjanje automobila iz zona nedozvoljenog parkiranja. Umjesto da prometna policija dijeli kazne zbog nepropisnog parkiranja Zagrebparking u dosluhu s tom istom policijom masovno uklanja vozila i naplaćuje građanima 500 kn za odvoz, iako je uklanjanje vozila dopušteno jedino ako predmetno vozilo fizički ugrožava odvijanje prometa.
Zbog organizirane pljačke i terora veliki dio motoriziranih građana živi u strahu. Stoga smo pokrenuli Peticiju „STOP BANDIĆU I NJEGOVIM TALIBANIMA“ i molimo sve građane da je potpišu i ne daju svoj glas Milanu Bandiću i njegovoj Listi u predstojećim lokalnim izborima. Ako imate ma kakva straha od neugodnosti, Peticiju možete potpisati anonimno.
Iza Milana Bandića se vuku bezbrojni repovi skandala i bezbroj podnesenih kaznenih prijava tako da njegov ponovni izbor za gradonačelnika Zagreba nije prihvatljiv kako za motorizirane građane tako i za ostale stanovnike Grada Zagreba.

Zlatko Zeljko, predsjednik
The Town of North Hempstead's rezoning proposal is not a comprehensive plan that will beautify Main Street. Instead, the establishment of this overlay district on sections of upper and lower Main Street in Port Washington, New York:
- Would encourage the redevelopment of new blocks of three-story, 45' high, mixed-use buildings (apartments above retail/commercial). The introduction of this cityscape will irreversibly impact the scale and character of our town. Proponents of the proposal have called the rezoning the "first step" in the redevelopment of Main Street and Port Washington.
- Would not create a more vibrant Main Street. Vibrancy derives from people frequenting successful businesses, and this proposal does not target or identify new businesses appropriate for Main Street. Existing businesses could be displaced by construction.
- Is not linked to the promised Main Street beautification efforts (cleanliness, sidewalk and storefront improvements) which were promoted in earlier presentations. Beautification could and should be progressed without rezoning.
- Would confer decision-making authority about architecture and use to the Town Board. Design should not be regulated by the Town Board.
- Does not include a workable solution to address ongoing traffic issues or alleviate parking problems, which persist in and around Main Street. The "shared parking" approach would burden surrounding streets and existing municipal lots.
- Is targeted to "incentivize" selected commercial property owners to improve their properties. What benefits are Port Washington residents receiving in return? Changes to the overlay district boundaries and code continue to be made behind closed doors without public dialog.

Dog daycare's in Vancouver are required to provide a ridiculous amount of parking for their clients.
Dogs are having their outdoor sections taken away to have more parking that they don't need because they DON'T DRIVE!
The city does not provide enough fenced dogs parks so DON'T take away our daycares!
Parking at Curtin Uni (Bentley campus) has been an issue for some time. We propose that no student living within 5km of campus should be allowed to obtain parking (unless disability, medical, or other proven exemption reasons exist.)
There is ample public transport available in this 5km zone. There are many end-of-trip facilities available on campus (and these are proposed to be upgraded).
There is a free Curtin bus in surrounding suburbs (with proposed upgrades to routes.)
Restricting parking to only those students living further than 5km from campus will free up valuable parking spaces, and increase health of students by increasing physical activity.
Regardless of whether or not pay-as-you-go parking is implemented or permit parking remains, this restriction will be easy to implement as both systems require address registration before parking is granted.
Parking for building's 19-21 are totally inadequate at ECU's Joondalup campus. All student's pay a yearly fee for the provision of parking spots and yet generally they are full by 8.30am. This means that students at later class times do circles of 20-45 minutes looking for a parking space.
Many students travel long distances to attend classes in through peek hour traffic only to find themselves locked out of the classroom if a moment late.
The lack of student parking on the east side of the campus is disempowering, emotionally upsetting and stressful to students.
Parking fees keep increasing at Cal State San Marcos. The fee for one semester of parking has reached an all time high of $385.00.
This is a fee being charged to park your car so that you can get an education. Total fee for the year is $770.00!
Parking at San Diego State is $135.00 per semester
Dear Westchester Neighbors:
To preserve the small town atmosphere we enjoy in Westchester, we must mobilize to stop the transformation of our neighborhood into Loyola Marymount University’s (LMU) free parking lot. Please sign this petition urging the university to adopt acceptable measures to prevent the LMU campus population from parking on our streets.
Beginning August 27, ALL visitors will be charged to park on campus. In January 2013, any of the campus population who wish to park on campus will be charged approximately $ 700 per year. The choice is clear – pay to park on campus or park for FREE on the surrounding residential streets.
Permit Parking is NOT the Solution
LMU’s solution to the burden they are creating for our neighborhood is a Preferential Parking District (PPD). Permit parking, with the associated costs and inconveniences, is NOT a solution – it is a . . . nightmare!
LMU allocated $24,000 annually to fund two permits per house in a defined area, should residents elect to implement a PPD, but, not all streets close to LMU will benefit from the small subsidy which does not cover the cost of visitor or guest parking. For more information see www.whole100.org. The burden is on residents to create a PPD, which can take years to implement. The creation of PPDs also has the potential to create a ripple effect – when campus populations cannot park on one street they will park on the next – think graduation, 4th of July Parade EVERYDAY!
We will NOT be Ignored Any Longer
LMU sold the community on its Master Plan, promising “A Better LMU” with the guarantee that it would not be expanding its borders, its footprint. Using Westchester streets as its parking lot is an expansion that will impact ALL of Westchester.
LMU ignores the residents of Westchester. LMU has a responsibility to consider and adopt policies to ensure that Westchester does NOT become LMU’s FREE parking lot.
We, the undersigned residents of Westchester, oppose Loyola Marymount University’s decision to begin charging for on-campus parking. LMU must take acceptable measures to prevent students, faculty, and staff from parking on Westchester streets. We demand that LMU address our concerns immediately.
Downtown Santa Rosa has been using 'Pay and Display' pay stations for collecting parking money, which means visitors need to get a coupon, go back to their car, and place the coupon on the dash. After some years of operation, this system remains inconvenient and extremely unpopular.
'Smart Meters' have more technical versatility and are more convenient, both for visitors and businesses. This is a survey to see what downtown workers and visitors would prefer: the current system, or 'smart meters'. The city's parking district has a reserve fund of more than $10,000,000 that can only be used for parking projects.
The existing pay stations can be re-used in less active areas of the city.
After a child was narrowly missed being run over on Wikegate Road directly opposite Brooke Primary School and after speaking to a number of Parent and Carers to get their opinions most have agreed that the parking around school is getting out of control.
This area is an accident waiting to happen and if something isn't sorted soon then a child is going to be injured.
Joe Szewczyk (Sauble Beach Development Corporation) proposes to bulldoze the dunes between 5th and 6th St. N to put in a paid parking lot. The zoning by-law does not permit motorized vehicles on the beach.
Recently Szewczyk has been driving on the beach and has put a No Trespassing Order against the Town. Mayor John Close has ordered the police and local by-law enforcers not to enforce the Dynamic Beach By-law.
The Pine Grove Park subdivision has had legal care and control of this section of the beach since 1932 and are insisting that the By-laws be enforced.
The current By-Law 2003-530 prohibits parking on all city streets for a limit of 3 hours from 7AM to 7PM. This by-law is enforced on an on-call basis. It is not enforced on a consistent or regular basis.
The by-law was passed in the 1980's and carried over to the City during the period of amalgamation. Currently if you park your car in front of your residence for more than 3 hours you can be ticketed. In 2011, approximately 31,000 tickets were issued and a revenue of approximately $1,000,000.00 dollars was collected.
There is no other reason needed to ticket you car, other than it is parked on the street for more than 3 hours. Some sections of the city you can buy a permit to allow you to park on the streets for more than 3 hours. There are certain conditions that must be mete to get a pass approved.
Recently MRs S Walker started a petition on here regarding non residents parking on Badajos Road.
The DIO listened and erected signs and double yellowed the entrance, however people still park here off the double yellows despite it being sign posted at the entrance that it is resident parking only.
This creates an unsafe environment for children, restrictions on residents entering their own properties and blocking the road from removals vehicles trying to access to move soldiers from their properties.
HERDSMAN Business Park owners and employees could be slapped with $1200 a year in fees under a new paid parking proposal.
Now open to public comment, the new policy will see people parking in the Osborne Park precinct hit with a $5 all-day fee.
Motorists looking to park in the streets around Glendalough train station could also expect to be charged under stage one of the scheme.
The City is set to make more than $2.2 million from the scheme in the first year alone.
Stage two of the proposal will see paid parking rolled out in Mt Lawley, at Bradford Street near Edith Cowan University, Railway Parade and the business precinct.
Plans are also being developed for business precincts in Inglewood, Main Street in Osborne Park and Innaloo.
The public comment period will close at the end of May with the scheme available to view at stirling.wa.gov.au.
The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital redevelopment project is at the concept plan stage for its first stage of works.
Whilst the community welcomes this long overdue development, the residents living in the streets adjoining the hospital site have strong concerns about two major issues that have not been addressed adequately in the concept plans:
1. the limited on-site parking for hospital staff, patients and visitors;
2. the overshadowing of neighbouring homes by the four storey building due to be erected on the Burdett Street side of the hospital site.
1. Regarding parking: current parking on the hospital site is already inadequate and results in the neighbouring streets being filled with staff cars from early morning until after 5 pm evenings during all weekdays. This has been an increasing problem for residents in recent years. Residents' visitors and relatives cannot find parking within two or three blocks of their homes during week days, residents cannot receive deliveries or have tradesmen call unless trucks and trade vehicles double park on the streets , or park in driveways.
This causes problems for elderly or less mobile residents and visitors and there are ongoing safety risks from cluttered streets where walkways are blocked and cars entering and leaving driveways have limited visibility of the oncoming traffic. The problem has existed for many years, has not ever been adequately addressed and with the proposed new and more intensive hospital activity will only become worse.
Whilst residents do understand that budgeting for parking is a budgeting issue they would like to point out that other developments in the area (high rise unit blocks and commercial businesses) are required to provide on site parking facilities for their staff and clientele.
We suggest that an underground facility could be provided by involvement of private sector joint venture partners (such as the Infrashore involvement in the Royal North Shore Hospital car parking facility) Residents also suggest that a 2 hour street parking limit and resident exemption stickers would encourage staff to park on the hospital site rather that on the surrounding streets, or to take public transport to their work.
2. The erection of a four storey hospital facility will potentially create overshadowing of homes, particularly on Derby Road and Burdett Street. Winter sun will likely to be blocked from these homes for significant periods of the day. Petitioners request that winter shadow diagrams be tabled for residents to consider before any final decision is made on the location of the four storey facility.
It appears to residents that decisions on the building design, size, location and parking facilities have been taken without due consideration for the residents whose homes adjoin the hospital site.
Network Rail have recently re-taken control of the car park at Blackheath station after the Lewisham Council's lease expired.
They now plan massive, inflation-busting rises in parking charges that threaten the vitality of local businesses and the farmers market, as well as demanding more from hard-pressed commuters who already face large rises in their train fares.
Townsville Hospital needs more adequate parking spaces. The parking situation at Townsville is going beyond simply ridiculous to outright dangerous. At any given time up to twenty cars are circling the one carpark vying for spaces.
People resort to parking illegally as it is the only option other than parking outside of hospital grounds. It is something that needs to change and with the upcoming election now is an ideal time to bring it to the attention of our state premier.
Parking in Southsea is an ongoing nightmare for residents. If you live anywhere near the seafront, you have very little chance of parking near your property.
This is due to offering free parking to anyone for up to 3 hours - this is often abused and in summer/sunny days - there is no chance.
We think Portsmouth City Council should be fair to the residents (Lennox Road South and streets nearby) and have residents parking ONLY!
25. Say NO to Lidl
250 Fencepiece Road, Hainault is a commercial site that has fallen into neglect with the closure of the car showroom on the site some years ago. Now Lidl has purchased the site, and they want to build a supermarket.
There is already a supermarket across the road, as well as other local convenience stores, and so another is unnecessary. There are also larger supermarkets within driving distance. This proposal would also involve a change of use, food waste disposal, large delivery lorries and traffic increase.
Cars speed down this road, and access from side roads is already difficult, especially in the mornings. This is a residential area, and a supermarket on this site is not in keeping with the neighbourhood.
There has been numerous accidents in the student parking lot at my school.
The cause of those accidents are students being distracted because they are either texting or talking on their cell phones while driving.
The two pieces of properties that runs east to west from beach to lagoon where the Lobsterfest is currently held, between Tuna and Cozy Corner running back to the Police Station, as well as the open property next to Cozy Corner on the south side, that runs east to west, beach to road side adjoining the current graveyard.
This property, which is affectionately known as the Hulse Properties, which was initially owned by Archbishop Arthur Dunn and Evadne Hulse; is the only two pieces of property that the village can and should re-acquire in downtown Placencia Village that can, once again, serve a public good, a public purpose and public space for one and all Placencians to enjoy now and in the future.
This property is of perfect size and location where we can have proper space for public parking, public beach area, properly extending our cemetery and to have a general public space.
Placencia must do everything it can to re-acquire this property, we cannot afford not to.
My name in Jimmy Vlachos. I'm a Real Estate agent and local resident of the Danforth/ Riverdale community.
I've been active in addressing violations of city by-laws by Commercial Entities, Business owners, and their suppliers for several years with great success.
My desire is to create a safer environment for property owners and tenants as well as addressing the needs of our community partners and business owners.
Commercial traffic in the area has increased and will continue to increase as we grow and prosper.
Commercial traffic is affecting the overall safety of residential streets and steps must be taking to ensure public safety and increased efficiency of business deliveries and pick ups.
The city, Danforth/ Riverdale residents, local businesses and there suppliers must work together to create an environment that is safer and able to handle the increased commercial demands of today and the future.
As from 1st December 2011 any vehicles parking in Westminister area on weekends must pay for parking even on Sundays which at the present time is FREE.
Minister for Transport Mr Lee Rowley should be stopped from doing this to us motorists.
We pay more then enough as it is.
The parking lot at Murphy's Landing Apartments (MLA) becomes sporadically overcrowded, frustrating residents. MLA should assign a number to each parking space, and have a tag for the resident's vehicle matching that parking space number and current license plate.
Parking spaces should be assigned based upon the resident's apartment lease date. This parking space system is needed to utilize parking areas for residents first, guests second. Parking spaces in front of buildings should be reserved for residents only.
The overflow parking areas should be claimed by residents with a second vehicle, then the remainder used by guests.
