Following redevelopment of Glen Huon Reserve, residents living nearby have encountered problems with visitors to the grounds parking on their lawns, verges and even driveways – particularly when there is a football match on.
Under Council’s Parking and Parking Facilities Local Law 2009, it is prohibited to park on private property, private driveways, reserves, footpaths or other ‘no parking’ areas designated by signage.
Penalties do apply if an offence is proven.
Shire of Dardanup staff began talking with residents during the last football season and investigated measures to deter the behaviour and new ‘no parking’ signs were installed in the problem area prior to the season commencing.
Residents are also entitled to submit photos and make a Statement if they believe an offence has occurred and if proven, an infringement can be issued.
Shire staff began investigating the issue again when contacted by a resident on Monday and have been liaising with them in the mean-time on an appropriate outcome.
With the addition of further resident comments on social media on Tuesday regarding the problem, the Shire of Dardanup has agreed to fund Ranger patrols at the next Glen Huon Oval football fixture on Sunday, July 1.
This will enable the situation to be monitored and decisions made about whether further measures needed to be undertaken.
Big changes are set to occur in the area between Glen Huon Reserve and Eaton Fair as Citygate rolls out its expansion plans under two separate stages.
Stage One was recently approved by the Department of Lands and is outlined in this previous post to our website:
Residents are encouraged to stay up-to-date with the changes via the Shire of Dardanup website and Facebook page.
