The Liberal opposition would ditch the Barr government’s plan for paid parking in the Phillip commercial precinct, shadow minister for small business Andrew Wall said on Thursday.
“Unlike the government, the Canberra Liberals will be happy to consult with local businesses and look to accommodate their needs,” he said.
“There should be a fairer mix of short stay, long stay and permit parking in Phillip.
“Removing the government’s paid parking is a live option. As far as we’re concerned, everything is on the table for discussion.
“The government has failed to consult on parking changes, but the Canberra Liberals will.”
Mr Wall will address businesses on the matter at a meeting in Phillip this afternoon.
