Statement about property at 225 Richardson Street, Princes Hill
Friday 27 May 2022
Yarra City Council has completed a comprehensive traffic engineering assessment of the road outside 225 Richardson Street, Princes Hill.
Council has inspected the site and does not believe any additional road safety treatments would assist in this case due to the location of the house and its proximity to the road.
Council also understands that in this case driver error was the cause of the accident. Council has attended the property and met with the property owners. Council has also provided assistance to the couple by making their property waterproof and ensuring it was safe to live in, as well as helping them work with their insurance company.
A standard letter was issued to the property owners in error which Council deeply regrets. Council spoke with the couple in April, explained this was a standard letter, apologised for any distress caused and reassured them no fine of any nature would be issued.
