  • Why is the change needed?

    3 months ago

    Improved safety and access

    This change is necessary due to potential confusion as this section of Graves Street is separated from the main section of the road by an unmade segment where there are currently no future plans for development. It is also important that emergency services can readily identify and access a property. The current situation opens up the possibility that emergency vehicles may be delayed by entering the wrong section of Graves Street.
