Chris Hooper, Castlemaine
I went to Daylesford recently and needed to park behind the Coles supermarket. That carpark has long beds between each line of car spaces with large trees giving shade to parked cars. Very nice on a hot day.
Why couldn’t the new carpark in Kennedy Street near Castlemaine station have been designed like that?
The actual car park spaces in the Kennedy Street carpark are incredibly narrow, trying to get the maximum cars in but not an ounce of shade.
The pebbles with native low plants and a healthy crop of couch grass around the edge are no help.
