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.
