Good work, we lived there for many years the bad behavior has been happening for 20 years - nothing has changed. All the hoons are not locals

No way, it just needs to be managed and addressed by the boys in blue. Install cameras?

Michelle Nadge

It needs police to catch the goons and fine them. It's a public area, not private property. They would just move elsewhere to party. Unfortunately living in these wonderful areas comes with other problems and expense. Why should our taxes be spent on the upkeep of theses gates? Owners maybe get together and fund it but again why should I be locked out? Maybe they can think of some motivational ideas.

A gate is really going to solve the issues and keep those antisocial hooligans out, it's not like they can't just park outside a gated area and walk past it.

Raymond Daly

Don't they already have gates and spikes on a public road on Carruthers Drive in Dolls Point? This was another notorious area that years ago they attempted to stop the hooning.

Peter Adshead

The nearby residents already put their own chairs near the pool. Now no outsiders will be able to park nearby so it will BE just for them, seems very unfair to me.

Dianne Cassidy

It's a public space that our rates and taxes pay for. If it's blocked off it will just cause a greater lack of parking on Clareville Ave and the hoons (which there are plenty of) will just move to Riverside drive. Problem moved, not solved.

More police presence and less restrictions to residents is what's needed.

Greg Vincent

Apprehend the culprits and take away the cars and crush them.

Kyle Formica

Th residents think they own the street.
