More than 170 submissions were received on the city council’s Selwyn Street Shops Streetscape Enhancement design, with the majority opposing the plan, particularly the removal of parking spaces. The street would lose 19 car parks to put cycleways down both Karolin Potter sides of Selwyn St between Brougham and Coronation Sts, and local businesses are worried the reduced parking would discourage their customers. Pies and Coffee co-owner Sarah Lim set up a petition in her shop which received more than 90 signatures opposing the plan. Ms Lim said the signatures showed customers needed the parking spaces. She was not opposed to the idea of enhancing Selwyn St, but wondered why the design was intent on hurting businesses. “I can’t afford for the car parks to go; we would go bankrupt.” The enhancement has been delayed by 18 months after it was omitted from the city council’s draft Annual Plan. Ms Lim hoped the delay would give the city council time to listen and come up with a design that will not have a negative effect on businesses. “If they have got a change of plan, we are willing to listen.” She said the project manager was invited to sit outside her business and watch the number of cyclists who use the road, she would even make them a coffee. Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board chairwoman Karolin Potter said she feels for the businesses, but the city needs projects like this to turn it into the “excitable city” residents deserve. CONCERNS: The co-owner of Selwyn St business Pies and Coffee, Sarah Lim, is worried her business would become bankrupt if parking spaces are removed from the street. The design below shows how cycleways will be put in at the expense of car parks outside Ms Lim’s shop.
