Hopefully with links to follow, Simon Corbll has been on the ABC announcing that he’s going to reduce the parking spaces available near where you work.
Doubtless this space will not be transformed into schools or parkland, but will rather go to his developer buddies.
Simon presents this as a responsible way of forcing you to use public transport or the pushbike (any bets Simon’s every brought a weeks shopping home on the back of his bicycle?). This is a good thing.
Funny that when it comes to providing a decent bus schedule Simon’s nowhere to be found. But when it comes to flogging off more public amenity he’s first out of the box.
UPDATED: Simon’s media release on his parking strategy is now online he wants more short stay parking for the consumers and the workers can lump it.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Simon has also announced a “sustainable transport contribution fund” by which developers can directly apply grease to the wheels of their planning approvals.
