Local Area Traffic Management Survey back in Clarence Park Ward.

A few years ago, Council experimented with a concept called Local Area Traffic Management (LATM). A concept wherein we look at traffic issues, rather than street by street but suburb by suburb. Clarence Park Ward was the catalyst in order to address issues previously identified in Black Forest.

LATM map for Clarence ParkIt proved a successful approach, so we opened it up to the whole city and on a ward per ward basis rather than suburb to suburb, wider again.

In the next few weeks the Local Area Traffic Management Survey comes back to Clarence Park Ward. If you have not received your letter before now it will land in your letter box shortly.

The area being surveyed includes the Clarence Park Ward, minus obviously Black Forest. It also includes a section of Goodwood apparently not included in their survey a couple of years back.

This is your chance to highlight concerns you may have in your street or suburb.

While Council is aware of some areas of concern this is an opportunity to ensure all issues are bought to our attention. What we know already is what we have learnt from you.

To those of you who have communicated concerns in the past, thank you. Please reaffirm these concerns as part of the survey. Those of you who have yet to, please take the opportunity.

Providing feedback will inform Council. We can then consider solutions that we can then put back to you for your further input. That said, if you have what you consider to be solutions already feel free to include that in your survey response.

We look forward to your raising issues concerning traffic flow, traffic volumes, traffic speeds, rat running, Bicycle paths, shared roads (current and potential), and parking.

This is Council at it’s basic. The Roads component of Roads, Rates and Rubbish. It is also Council at its basic, working with the community for the benefit of the community.

Let’s make Clarence Park Ward safer and easier for us to navigate, whether by car, by bike or by foot by filling out the Local Area Traffic Management survey.
