Prized East Perth address gets parking

RESIDENTS of an exclusive East Perth’s address won the right to park on their street, after Perth City Council overturned a recent decision to ban parking on Henry Lawson Walk.

Councillors admitted they had made a mistake when they removed car parking from the street during a revamp of parking rules in the area.

In October council introduced a two-hour parking limit on Brown Street east of Victory Terrace; Jewell Lane between Brown Street and Victory Terrace; and Victory Terrace between Brown Street and Jewell Lane.

It also placed a no parking or stopping restriction on Henry Lawson Walk, Beacon Terrace and Flagstaff and Ensign lanes.

Councillor Laurance Good-man said he and his fellow councillors had thought Henry Lawson Walk was included in the two hour parking restriction.

The no parking restriction has caused great difficulty for residents there.

Lord Mayor Peter Nattrass backed the return of street parking because Henry Lawson Walk was a “unique street that required special attention”.

Fronting onto Claisebrook Cove, the walk is one of the most prized addresses in the East Perth Redevelopment Authority area.
