Residents draw to the attention of Brisbane City Council the high occupancy of limited daytime on-street parking spaces on the section of Ryans Road located to the north of Sir Fred Schonell Drive, St Lucia. This also impacts residents of 36 Jerdanefield Road, which has a frontage onto Ryans Road. Residents note that a large and increasing proportion of spaces are being occupied by non-residents, believed to be students and staff from the University of Queensland. This is attributable to.

1. A scarcity of parking on the University of Queensland, St Lucia campus.

2. The corner of Ryans Road and Hiron Street presently being the edge of the St Lucia Residential Permit Parking Area, and therefore the nearest point to the university campus not subject to time-limited parking restrictions for non-residents.

3. A bus stop with regular public transport access to the university campus located nearby on Sir Fred Schonell Drive. Consequent lack of on-street  parking impacts on the amenity of local residents by preventing residents and visitors from accessing on-street parking when required.

Your petitioners therefore request that Brisbane City Council extend the St Lucia Residential Permit Parking Area to include the area of Ryans Road located to the north of Sir Fred Schonell Drive, inclusive of 36 Jerdanefield Road, St Lucia.
