Coun­cil passes park­ing con­trol plan

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

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.
