Traffic Issues in Your Street
If you are experiencing speeding vehicles or high traffic volume issues in your street you need to write to Council with your concerns and Council will organise for a traffic survey to be carried out. This is the process:
If the survey finds speeding or high traffic volume issues, at least three residents from the street should write/e-mail council asking for traffic calming measures to be installed.
- If Council determines that traffic calming treatments are required, a draft proposal will be prepared and forwarded to affected residents for their comment.
- Council will then report the finding to the next Local Traffic Committee (LTC) for consideration and Council will advise residents of the outcome prior to the matter going to a Council meeting for consideration and adoption.
- Council requires at least 50% support for the traffic calming scheme from all the properties in the subject street before considering any approval.
- Should the proposal be approved at the Council meeting, the proposal is listed for funding in the next available draft Council Budget. It maybe 12 months or more before a treatment can be installed.
