Liveable Places and Spaces

We want to update you on the outcome of our Council meeting held on Tuesday 28 September 2021.

Manningham Council resolved:

'That Council defer consideration of this item until the 23 November 2021 Council meeting to permit further investigation regarding a potential partial road closure and other safety measures on Arundel Road (west), Park Orchards.’

After listening to the differing views across the community, the decision to defer was made in order for us to receive more detailed feedback.

We have provided some background information and responded to many of the concerns raised in the previous submissions in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and facts.

In particular, the most raised concern was about emergency services vehicles accessing Arundel Road. We can confirm that emergency services vehicles will be able to access Arundel Road, even with a road closure.

We want to ask you for information on how you use Arundel Road and what function and characteristics are important to you. We also want to hear your feedback on how safe you feel using the road and to help us understand what safety measures we may need to put in place.

Kindly refer to the FAQs for further information before you complete the survey. The survey is now open and closes 5pm, 29 October 2021.
