Why is council conducting this car parking survey?
I just want more places to park. Is Council going to provide this?
We are definitely a community of car lovers. We understand congestion and traffic is a big issue facing our community. But did you know each car space above ground, in a multi-deck car park costs between $20,-35,000 per space? And that it’s even higher for underground parking – at $50-60,000 per underground space. So there’s a reason – there’s a price tag to everything! We need to think about planning ahead for the future, and how we reduce congestion in the short and long term.
This survey will help form up community feedback to include as part of our long-term Car Parking Strategy. This which takes into account our long-term needs, competing demands, changing demographics, future changes in technology and a framework to best manage our future community car parking needs.
I park and take public transport, but there’s never enough commuter parking spaces. What is Council doing about this?
