Note:    At this time Councillor McCallum put forward a Motion for Council to consider supporting the upgrade of Berry Street as per the alternative plan preferred by Berry Street residents on the basis that the residents provide funding for the additional cost to extend the road and that the payment be received by 5 June 2015.

That the Council:

1)      endorses the upgrade of Berry St with the construction of the cul de sac in the location at the southern end of the road reserve as per attachment A (Sketch Alt 1).
