Hi all,

Heads up on tonights council meeting - including discussion of proposed 
Copenhagen lanes for Wellington Street, options have been previously 
discussed at Yarra BAC meetings in the last 12 months.


 From Yarra Council: Please find below a snapshot of the matters that 
will be considered by Council at its meeting on Tuesday 17 April.

Local residents and other community members are welcome to attend the 
meeting, which will be held at the Richmond Town Hall (333 Bridge Road), 
from 6.30pm.

To read the reports that Council will consider on the below matters or 
on other items at the meeting, here is the full agenda.

Snapshot of what's on the agenda:
Outcomes of the Abbotsford Convent Precinct Advisory Group. *
Council will consider a report that outlines possible solutions to 
traffic and parking issues at the Abbotsford Convent identified by the 
Abbotsford Convent Precinct Advisory Group. The group has proposed 10 
actions it believes could improve those issues, including installing a 
'No Through Road' sign and removing on-street parking on St Heliers 
Street and working with VicRoads to install traffic lights at the 
Abbotsford Convent Foundation car park entrance on Johnston Street. The 
report also seeks Council's endorsement to undertake further community 
consultation on the proposal to remove on-street parking on St Heliers 

*Copenhagen bicycle lanes proposed for Wellington Street, Collingwood.*
A report will outline a proposal to build Copenhagen-style bicycle lanes 
on Wellington Street, between Johnston Street and Victoria Street. If 
installed, the lanes would require the removal of up to 118 car spaces. 
Officers are seeking Council's permission to start consulting with the 
community on two concept designs for the bicycle lanes, and to determine 
the level of support for the idea.
