Local businesses can have their say on the expansion of paid parking in Phillip by attending a consultation session at Woden Library from 5-7pm today.
Transport and municipal services minister Meegan Fitzharris urged businesses operating in the area to provide feedback on the proposed parking arrangements.
“We want to ensure parking is structured so that local customers can find a park easily, and stop people who don’t work in the area from filling up the spots all day, which is happening currently,” she said.
“We want to provide businesses with a parking scheme that works for them, their employees and their customers, and we will be flexible in coming up with that solution.”
The minister held an earlier public consultation session at midday.
“The parking scheme, including the breakup of free and paid parking, and the allocation of 30-minute, one-hour and two-hour paid parking, has not been finalised and we want feedback from the community to help inform the final scheme.
“We are happy to take suggestions on board, and will make a final announcement about the mix of parking arrangements in the Phillip commercial precinct before 1 July.”
Those unable to attrend Monday’s sessions can provide feedback on the proposed paid parking scheme by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
