In Boronia VIC on “Use and development of the...” at 217 Dorset Road, Boronia VIC 3155:

Neville Sanders commented

It is great to see renewal commencing on this corner where the existing shops are quite old and past their prime. While recognizing that the application seeks to provide less than the “standard” number of car spaces required there are some points worth noting prior to criticizing this reduction. There is still one space per occupancy plus, and importantly, all the owners of the shops on the corner of Dorset and Boronia Roads paid for the construction of the car parking areas at the rear of these shops in the early 1980s. I owned 2 lots on the corner at that time and can confirm this is accurate.
The off street parking scheme included the car spaces on the east side of the Boronia Progress Hall as well as the spaces on the south of the existing shops. Whilst the land is Council owned, the owners and traders of the day paid for the construction and in return should be able to receive a “credit” for spaces on their own land.
