Recently I drove a neighbour of mine to Park St Eye Hospital for a procedure, but rather than spend an hour in the waiting room drove on to the Rose Garden and Begonia House at Cliff Rd. Unfortunately the area was inundated with parked cars. No way did I find a park in the half hour I cruised around.
Council's recent decision to adopt Cliff Rd as the preferred site for the museum in my opinion seems totally wrong as I am sure it does to the resident ratepayers adjacent to Cliff Rd.
On the way home I visited 17th Ave and the Historic Village – to my mind the only suitable spot for the museum. The St Johns HQ is being rebuilt but I am sure their staff will have off-street parking and there seems to be heaps of parking beyond the new building and no residential properties? I rest my case.
I wonder if the councillors have visited Cliff Rd mid-morning on a work day?
