In December 2020, Council unanimously supported my motion to investigate concerns and take immediate steps to restore Park Street, Erskineville as a quiet residential road. Since then, residents have expressed concern that the City of Sydney is not fulfilling the intent of the notice of motion.
There has been no consultation with residents following the Council resolution. The City is relying on already undertaken consultation as part of the cycleway project, which is not what the residents (or me) expected or wanted. Frustrated by the lack of immediate action by the City, the residents met and resolved to pursue the closure of Park Street at Railway Parade/Henderson Road.
I have been working closely with the residents to ensure that a positive outcome is achieved for Park Street. At our Council meeting on Monday, I will put forward another Notice of Motion requesting that staff investigate all options to progress to closure and restore Park Street to the street it once was.
