Letters to the Editor - June 2013

27 May 2013

Shopping boycott

My wife and I have lived in Docklands for over six years.

We are now finding it impossible to function within our normal daily routines due to the current environment in a suburb in which we are ratepayers.

It is impossible to collect from and generally use the post office due to the lack of parking (including the overzealous parking attendants).

Similarly, we are finding it almost impossible to visit both Woolworths and our chemist.

We have now decided to carry out all the above in South Melbourne, where there is parking and our patronage is appreciated.

We would encourage other local ratepayers to do the same.

Other ratepayers in other suburbs have parking concessions in the form of permit zones. Why not permits for Docklands ratepayers?
