Council drives cbd parking changes

At June’s Ordinary Council meeting Councillors approved a resolution to remove timed parking limits in the CBD after 12:30pm on Saturday’s and all day Sunday (until midnight).

Mayor Ryan said “This decision is a direct result of Council doing what it can to help improve the CBD environment, especially on the weekends.”

“The reasoning behind this was to encourage more residents into the CBD during these times, for shopping and to help support local business.”

“Council is sure this decision will come as welcome relief to both local businesses in the CBD and to drivers.” Said Mayor Ryan

Due to these changed conditions, which will come into effect from 1 July 2012, drivers need to pay attention to signage being updated in the coming weeks.  Drivers will also need to be aware that time limits still apply during all other periods and time limits vary depending on the location within the CBD.

This recent decision means the CBD time limits cease at 12.30pm on a Saturday to midnight on the immediately following Sunday night.
