FORMAL Reports

RP-1               Approval for Short-Stay Parking at 133 Peter Street, Wagga Wagga for DA20/0774

Author:          Frank Goodyer         

 

 

Recommendation

That Council note the Traffic Committee’s approval to change three 2P parking spaces in front of 133 Peter Street, Wagga Wagga to 10 minute short-stay parking between the hours 7:30am to 9:30am and 3:30pm to 6pm Weekdays.

 

Report

Background

 

Upon consideration of a report from Council staff recommending the approval of the Development Application (DA20/0774) at its Ordinary Meeting on 22 March 2021, Wagga Wagga City Council resolved (20/0167) as follows:

 

That Council defer DA20/0774 for Change of Use to Centre Based childcare facility at 133 Peter Street, Wagga Wagga to allow further consultation with the applicant in relation to parking considerations

 

Through that consultation, the applicant has prepared the attached documentation addressing the issue of parking, which includes a proposal to provide 10minute timed parking along the site frontage to Peter Street, between the hours of 7:309:30am and 3:306pm from Monday to Friday.

 

Subsequently, Wagga Wagga City Council at its Ordinary Meeting on 26 April 2021 resolved (21/111) as follows:

 

That Council approve DA20/0774 for Change of Use to Centre Based childcare facility (60 places) including associated alterations and additions, signage, landscaping and boundary fencing at 133 Peter Street, Wagga Wagga NSW 2650 subject to the conditions outlined in the Section 4.15 Assessment Report.

 

Condition C.5 of the determination is:

 

Prior to the release of the Construction Certificate a plan shall be submitted to and approved by the General Manager or delegate, that identifies three parking spaces to be assigned as short-stay (ten minutes) spaces and associated signs adjacent to the front entry into the centre. This plan is required to be referred to and approved by the Local Traffic Committee before it is approved as these works incorporate a prescribed traffic control device.

 


 

Comment

Restricted 2P parallel parking already exists in front of 133 Peter Street and bays are defined with marked “T”s and “L”’s. 

Ten-minute parking is a control in Table 3.2 of AS1742.11-2016 “Manual of uniform traffic control devices.”

It is therefore recommended that three timed parking bays in front of 133 Peter Street, Wagga Wagga be changed to 10 minutes duration utilising R5-14 series signs denoting P 10 mins 730AM -930AM, 330PM-6pm MON - FRI as depicted in the following diagram.

Risk Management Issues for Council

There are no risks that are associated with this matter.

 

Internal / External Consultation

Consultation was undertaken with Wagga Wagga City Council Development and Approvals staff only.
