In case anyone hasn’t noticed, the Canberra Centre has quietly started charging for parking even on Sundays and public holidays.
Such changes need to be advertised well beforehand and users need to be consulted. Even the signs offering free Sunday parking have not been changes and to that extent the charging appears illegal!
There is no grace period of say, 2 hours for shoppers or movie goers either.
The question needs to asked as to how this is possible, whether ACT goverment approval was given, and the precedent it sets for other car parks in Belconnen and Woden.
Can I suggest that everyone write to centre management as well as their local Member to ask for a reversal.
I, for one, will no more park there on Sundays. It must be remembered that it was orginally public land which had free parking on Sundays!
