Town to re­duce on-street park­ing fees

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park will re­duce on-street park­ing fees in Bur­swood and Raphael Park in re­sponse to com­mu­nity feed­back dur­ing a sched­uled re­view of its award-win­ning park­ing man­age­ment plan.

From De­cem­ber 1, costs for on-street park­ing in the two ar­eas will be halved to $1 an hour or $5 a day.

G.O. Ed­ward and Hawthorne Place carparks will also have $1 an hour park­ing and all-day park­ing at $5 with the first hour free with a ticket.

The changes fol­low a re­duc­tion in the cost of park­ing around Oats Street Sta­tion in Septem­ber this year.

“Just as we did in Septem­ber, we are con­tin­u­ally re­view­ing the park­ing man­age­ment plan to en­sure we are hit­ting the ob­jec­tives,” Mayor Trevor Vaughn said.

The plan aims to en­sure fair ac­cess to lim­ited park­ing spa­ces in the Town.
