Monash Car Park Maths – let’s try subtraction

There is a saying

God giveth and God taketh away”

So let’s see how this phrase  translates to car parking promises in Glen Waverley

When  we are promised 800 to 1200 bays in a new multi deck car park what does this mean in reality?

To get this amazing offer – let’s see  what we have to give up:

199 parks already in Glendale St West car park

98  on  41-47 Montclair Ave car park (sale of land to developer proposed)

99 curbside in Kingsway

18 in Glendale St

400 bays that should have been provided on site within  approved developments  but financial contributions were paid in lieu via Parking Overlay 3, to the tune of $8 Million

Sub Total 814 (OMG we have passed the 800 newly promised!!)

From Parking Overlay 4 it is envisaged another 400 additional car park bays will be paid for -these may come from :-

257 Central Car Park if sale eventuates

12 Coleman Pde East  (as above)

Subtotal 1083

370 for clients of proposed 6000 sq m Library- Hub (should  this really service future demand)

1453 bays – is what is required at this point   – plus (unknown) *** financial considerations from developments lacking on-site parking with new future builds foreseen at 41-47 and 50 Montclair Ave and extra cafe  seating along Kingsway’s widened footpath [pro rata]

So for all who were fooled by the “Transforming Kingsway” Bulletin spin – there is no extra car parking just rearranging the deckchairs c/o Spin Doctor G L

What you will get is a 7 storey that is 3.4 times the size of Euneva!
