i’d like to know if i would be booked seeing i drive a commuter bus and it sticks out past my letterbox and def can’t fit in my garage.. bloody ridiculous we even have to ask these questions… maybe move the letterboxes to the edge of the kerb so there is no issue…..
I would also like to ask if the Council is prepared to reimburse new home owners for the additional costs Tradies will ask them to pay to build their homes in these suburbs like Aura where they are being fined? My daughter, who has bought a block in Aura, was told by her Building Company this morning that it’s now costing them more to get tradies on site at Aura.
How do the parking inspectors monitor the “who parked first” when one parks a car legally 3m clearance then another parks their car taking away the 3m clearance and both cars receive fines?
What are people in new developments with streets less than 3m wide meant to do in order to park within the rules?
Where is the “Duty of Care” to the communities safety represented in these parking fines being issued, what are parking inspectors being advised in regards to Safety of Community members when issuing fines?
Im going to my son and his fiance who live in Aura on Xmas day. If i cant park in driveway or half up on the curb where am i going to be able to park legally. I will have a 7kg glazed ham, esky and presents to take, so cant catch a bus which is what the council would have told me to do. I dont want a fine, i pay rates, car registration.Never had a speeding ticket DONT WANT A PARKING FINE FOR VISITING MY FAMILY
Do the parking inspectors carry house plans with them to decipher if a car parked in a driveway is in fact on council land? Or what landmarks do they use to decide what is council land or a driveway?
When are they going to work with the community who employ them?
Why is there not adequate parking around the coast to prevent parking infringements?
Can we have a 3 month reprieve until the council can have a real discussion and a solution made over the parking situation all over the coast. As long as parking is done safely eg not have 2 cars parked behind each other in driveways
Can we please have some explanation as to why the blatant cash grab by council. Has the mayor spent so much of our ratepayers money moving the council to Maroochydore, trying to attract developers for casinos and other large scale development
Where are ALL the Family Visitors and Guests supposed to park in these Narrow streets ?? 😏 Or extended Families whose vehicles simply just don’t fit in driveway or garage ?? 🤨 Please tell Council
How is Council going to ensure tourism to the Sunshine Coast doesn’t suffer because of the parking issues with an overkill of yellow lines and heavy handedness of parking officers. I think it should also be brought to her attention that an officer employed by Council told a citizen of the Sunshine Coast “go back to where you came from you gook” or something like that.
We were told by council workers that cars must be parked on the street and then leave three meters between each car.
How is this possible when the streets are so narrow??
These laws where created…when? I am quite sure that it was before the advent of such narrow road building. It needs to be legal to put two wheels on curb as long as it’s not impeding a CONCRETE path!!
