Residents draw to the attention of the start time of the meter parking in Jane Street, West End, at 7 am is precluding the users of that exercise precinct from actively enjoying the walking, rowing and cycling facilities. We propose that the meter parking start at 8 am to allow exercisers to be able to park here before 8 am and allow the best use of this recreational precinct. The meter parks are not sought after in the hour between 7 am and 8 am. However, it is leading to fines and inconvenience to the hundreds of early users of the recreation precinct (starting at around 5 am), many of which are physically not able to return to their car easily before 7am due to helping school children who row on the Brisbane River. Or others, especially women, who are simply discouraged from using the precinct due to poor light before 6 am and then having to be gone by 7 am.

Your petitioners therefore request please change the start of metered parking to 8 am on weekdays.
