Pedestrians first

This footpath outside a newly completed development in Esplanade West has been re-instated at the developer's cost according to Council's new standard specifications. These require that the footpath be continuous and not interrupted by crossovers. Before the adoption of these specifications, the driveway/crossover would have crossed over the footpath.
This is to show that where any new works are done - even if not by council - pedestrians should be considered first.
It may appear a small thing - but we are proud of this intervention in favour of pedestrians.
It also shows how a planning permit condition is implemented.
The street tree was also required as a condition of the planning permit.
