Street park­ing fees re­duced

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page -

The Town of Vic­to­ria Park has re­duced on-street park­ing fees in the area sur­round­ing Oats Street train sta­tion.

From Septem­ber 1, on-street park­ing in the area will cost $1 per hour or $5 per day, as op­posed to $2 per hour or $10 for eight hours.

The coun­cil says the low­er­ing of park­ing fees was in re­sponse to com­mu­nity feed­back dur­ing a sched­uled re­view of its award­win­ning park­ing man­age­ment plan.

The Town’s park­ing man­age­ment plan has been im­ple­mented with the ob­jec­tive of en­sur­ing eq­ui­table ac­cess to lim­ited park­ing spa­ces within the Town.

The area around Oats Street train sta­tion was iden­ti­fied as hotspot one in the plan and user­pays park­ing was fully im­ple­mented in the area on Fe­bru­ary 20, 2014.

“When the park­ing man­age­ment plan was im­ple­mented we made a com­mit­ment to re­view it regularly to make sure it is achiev­ing its ob­jec­tives,” chief ex­ec­u­tive An­thony Vuleta said.

“Fol­low­ing feed­back from a re­cent re­view, we have de­cided to de­crease the fees for park­ing in this area to help to evenly dis­trib­ute user-pays and free park­ing.

“When park­ing in the Oats Street area, or any­where in the Town, it is im­por­tant to al­ways check the signs posted for in­for­ma­tion on park­ing re­stric­tions and re­mem­ber to al­ways pay and dis­play.”
