Parliamentary zone parking consultation comes to an end

johnboy 13 December 2010 4

The NCA is giving you one last chance to be consulted on parking in the Parliamentary Zone:

The committee is urging everyone who uses the areas to comment on the parking management options outlined in the discussion paper.

‘Public comments will be included in a consultation report, and will assist in developing policy options for parking management in Russell, Barton and the Parliamentary Zone.

‘There are a number of ways to have your say. For those with a small amount of time, there are four polls, or a short survey available online.

‘Comments can also be made on the online discussion board, or written submissions can be posted to the committee,’ said Mr Smith.

The discussion paper was prepared by an intergovernmental committee on parking management. The committee comprises representatives from six Australian Government and three ACT Government departments.

The discussion paper was released for public comment on 6 November 2010. It is available for download at www.nationalcapital.gov.au/haveyoursay, or for a hardcopy version please call 02 6271 2888.

Submissions close at 5pm AEST on Friday 17 December 2010.

So don’t say you weren’t warned.

What they need to do is build big kickass carparks under the huge expanses of grass inbetween the finance/treasury building and the old Admin building. But of course that would cost too much.

And you would be prepared to pay to park there, yes?

Well yeah, if there’s only pay parking I’d prefer undercover for sure.

In the bad old days you wouldn’t even have an opportunity like this to have your say. How would you run a consultation process PantsMan?

After having showed how not to run a city, the NCA has shown us how not to run a public consultation process.

1. A ‘blog” set up to solicit view from the public that breached almost every accessibility guideline for government websites known to man.
2. Anyone can post anything with no moderation at all.
3. Initially, ACT government log proudly displayed; however, when the whole thing started to turn into an ACT Government lynch-mob, ACT Government logo removed.
4. Whenever anyone responded to your post, you got an email with their comment on it. (Exponential anger generation machine.)
5. NCA unable to answer:
a) how much paid parking would cost me;
b) how much revenue would be raised;
c) where would the money go’
b) why was the ACT Government logo removed?
This all lead people to conclude that the NCA is just doing the ACT Government’s bidding for it.
6. Consulatees left to calculate their own “$3,000 per year cost to me”/”$140 million to the ACT Government” numbers and post them straight on the blog.
7. Belated bumbling answers from the NCA posted on said blog.

Net outcome: thousands of Parliamentary Triangle workers wound up, pissed off, mobilized, and angry.

Keep up the great work NCA!
