FREE PARKING REVIEW
THE number of free short-stay parking spots in Subiaco’s “east precinct” could be slashed, but the council says the move is not about stinging motorists.
A parking plan for the precinct’s 1340 council-managed parking bays includes a host of changes the City of Subiaco hopes will better balance the needs of residents, visitors and businesses.
Included is the possibility of cutting the number of free short-stay bays in the area bounded by Railway Parade, Thomas Street, Bagot Road and Townsend Road from 871 to 68, and introducing additional ticket parking in areas where demand is high and regular turnover of bays is required. Subiaco councillors will consider the plan for public consultation at a meeting tonight.
