Members Statement - Elwood Parklets



Thursday, 18 May 2023.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (9:43):

Elwood is a village that we need to protect.

Although parklets have been a positive addition to Ormond Road, their insertion needs to be balanced against the rights of neighbouring traders.

Unfortunately, Port Phillip Council wants to reduce parking further and increase parklet space.

Many have now signed a petition, led by Derek Mulvihill of Pet Pantry & Co.

Council needs to listen to that community feedback.
