Public feedback sought on street parking options
Residents and landowners are being encouraged to have their say on a potential 104 new on- street parking options proposed for residential streets by the City of Rockingham to compensate for a lack of parking at the foreshore as a result of ongoing revitalisation works.
At the December 19 City of Rockingham electors’ meeting, Cr Joy Stewart made a motion, which was passed unanimously, for the City’s chief executive to investigate further options at the foreshore to increase parking capacity in the short term. At last Tuesday night’s council meeting, preliminary onstreet parking opportunities for May Street, Harrison Street, Florence Street and Esplanade, were approved to go out for public consultation.
A City report considered on- street parking opportunities on streets within 250m or three minutes walking distance of Railway Terrace and the proposed Beach Plaza.
Preferred options will be subject to community consultation before the matter is referred back to the council for approval.
