A medical centre in this position is entirely inappropriate. This is already an extremely busy area with six major schools in the vicinity, and with traffic using Wellington Street and Edgevale Road as alternatives to Cotham and Barkers Roads. There are many young children and families in the area who walk to schools and already must contend with excessive, speeding traffic. Additionally, with many homes having no off-street parking, residents rely upon the goodwill of neighbors to be fair and reasonable when finding parks close to their homes. This is important for unloading children and groceries, and especially necessary for the elderly. A medical centre that expects up to seventeen extra cars in the area every hour, and providing no off-street client parking will place excessive and significant hardship on the residents.
