    There is already an enormous problem in parking in the inner suburbs. Councils like to pretend we are not a car -orientated society but, although I use public transport whenever I can, the reality is that cars are needed for some journeys. My friends already don't visit me because of parking problems - I do not consider that living in the inner suburbs means you shouldn't have friends being able to visit.

    Developers often ask for a reduction in the parking requirements so they can maximise their already excessive profits at the expense of living conditions for the residents of an area. Too often councils reduce the parking requirements, with long term implications for residents. Parking requirements should be made more stringent not less - councils should consider the needs of residents more than the profits of developers and their future rates (councils are already rolling in cash). By disallowing the required parking requirements of developments, the inner suburbs become less liveable year by year.

    Councillors probably live in the now 'protected' parts of their shires where excessive developments are not allowed at all - shame on Australia for polarizing society into have and have-nots in so many ways.

    Please do NOT disallow any reduction in the parking requirements.
