Breach of court orders at Coles Oatley - again

Letter sent to Hurstville City Council ,

I would like to report and have recorded the fact (ie in the form of a work order) that just before 8am this morning I observed a Tip Top truck (see attached photo) parked in Mulga Rd on the western side of the Mulga Rd/Woronora Pde intersection, apparently waiting to enter the loading dock. The door of the loading dock was closed. I told the driver that parking in any of Oatley West's residential streets is a breach of Land and Environment Court orders and asked him to wait in Roberts' Ave, Mortdale. The driver drove off. I watched the driver proceed north along Woronora Pde, go around the roundabout at the Woronora Pde/Wonoona West intersection and head back towards Coles Oatley - to then park in Woronora Pde (see attached photo). I stopped and repeated my claim that parking in our residential streets is a breach of court orders and that he should wait in Roberts Ave, Mortdale. The driver then asked where Roberts Ave was, which I naturally told him.

Thank you in anticipation of Council's consideration of this request. I would appreciate an early reply to my correspondence.

Contravention of Coles Traffic Management Plan.

Letter to Hurstville City Council, General Manager September 28, 2007

Contravention of Coles Traffic Management Plan.

I am writing to complain about a contravention in the traffic management plan court order decreed when the Coles Supermarket was approved by the Land and Environment Court.

On Thursday 27 September at approximately 8.20am a Steggles van (number plate XBA506) delivering to Coles drove down Mi Mi St. The loading dock at Coles was full, so the van then proceeded to circle the block of Woronora Pde, Woonona Pde, Mi Mi St and Mulga Rd. The truck finally pulled into the loading dock at approximately 8.33am.

My understanding of the court order is:

That trucks are supposed to access the site via Gungah Bay Road and Mulga Road, and

That trucks are supposed to wait at Roberts Ave near the tennis courts for the loading dock to become available, not circle the streets in Oatley.

Please advise what actions council is taking to ensure that the Court Order is not breached by Coles.
