More paid parking in Airlie Beach
A MOTION to install paid parking at Coconut Grove, Airlie Beach, was discussed at Whitsunday Regional Council’s ordinary meeting this week. Crs Kevin Collins and Jan Clifford were successful in their move to have the motion tabled for further investigation. Cr Clifford said there were issues such as ensuring the proceeds would be returned to the area “as they should”. She also asked for a report into the cost of employing a full-time parking officer for Airlie Beach.
