Campaign – Local Infrastructure (Mobility Scooters)

One of the key issues raised today was about Local Infrastructure and support for the elderly. This discussion resulted from seeing a mobility scooter park at the shops. When I was originally running for council in 2021, this was an issue raised to me by a concerned health professional in Berowra and note that here has been no improvement to access or parking for these scooters across the district. I propose that all new shopping developments and upgrades be required to include a couple of spaces for mobility scooters. This will allow for them to be parked in a safe area away from pedestrians. Another proposed advantage of these dedicated spots, would be to allow for vehicles to be charging while the occupants are shopping. This ensures the occupants have enough charge to get home and for those who wish to, to select the source of power generation from where their electricity is coming from.
