Changes planned to town cen­tre park­ing

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION - Bryce Luff

CHANGES to park­ing at the Cock­burn Cen­tral Town Cen­tre could be com­ing.

Among al­ter­ations up for con­sid­er­a­tion is the in­tro­duc­tion of re­stric­tions to park­ing on the east side of Fet­tler Lane and a two-hour park­ing limit to the west side of Points Way dur­ing work­ing hours Mon­day to Fri­day.

En­gi­neer­ing and works di­rec­tor Charles Sul­li­van said the changes were be­ing con­sid­ered to en­sure all park­ing signs were en­forced cor­rectly and to in­tro­duce park­ing for uses re­quested by the com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing a load­ing zone and mo­tor-cy­cle park­ing.

Mr Sul­li­van said the changes were also be­ing con­sid­ered to re­strict on-street park­ing to keep streets clear.

He said the changes were nec­es­sary to en­sure traf­fic was man­aged in the grow­ing hub, and to en­sure the short-term park­ing needs of the Town Cen­tre were met.

“The City has been con­sid­er­ing these changes for some months as part of on­go­ing ob­ser­va­tion of park­ing in the City and con­sid­er­a­tion of of­fi­cer and com­mu­nity feed­back,” he said.

“The City’s ac­tions re­flect the dy­namic na­ture of on­street park­ing con­trols and how they need to be mon­i­tored over time, and some­times changed to re­flect chang­ing de­mands.”

The City has in­vited the public to com­ment on the pro­posed changes, with the con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod clos­ing this Fri­day.

Planned changes are open for public com­ment.
