The city’s failure to enforce parking requirements for bikes is seriously disappointing and it undermines Victoria council’s work to encourage cycling in our city.
If a strata suddenly removed 14 car parking spots that were part of their development going forward I have no doubt the city would be treating it differently. Enough of the double standards.
It is long past time for people who ride bikes to be treated equally to drivers. There is little enough bike parking in the city without stratas flouting the rules.
The city should fine them immediately, and escalate fines until they replace the bike parking that they agreed to as part of the development package.
