Council passes parking control plan
A NEW strategy to provide a long-term parking management plan has been passed by City of South Perth council.
The City commissioned Luxmore Parking and Safety Consultants to develop the strategy that will offer a framework for the next 15 years and help it reach travel demand goals.
“Road safety around onstreet parking was the overriding concern for the South Perth community. It was identified primarily in residential areas, around schools, Curtin University and along main arterial roads,” Mayor Sue Doherty said.
“The strategy is clear in that the City needs to prioritise access for pedestrians, cyclists, public transport users and people with disabilities.
“Another priority is to make the most of the public transport infrastructure.”
The strategy outlines 22 recommendations and will create a plan to manage parking in areas such as the South Perth Station Precinct.
