With all due respect Clagro, we have paid a significant amount for a parking space on Olympic Park Avenue that is defined as our property. We were denied access to our property during these events and it's not like there were alternative routes to be able to access our own parking space.
I'm not saying these events shouldn't occur, far from it, I just don't think they should be closing that section of the road where we can't access our property any other way (unless you suggest we drive through the crowds of runners and cyclists). There are plenty of routes within the park that the events can occur or where roads aren't residential e.g. Waterden Road, or roads that have alternative access.
I personally don't think the purpose of a forum is to keep things positive, but rather to facilitate information sharing and discuss topics. You're welcome to not read my comments if they're impinging on your positivity.
