Officers to enforce parking restrictions
Northern Grampians Shire Council local laws officers will enforce parking restrictions in Stawell and St Arnaud central business districts from next month.
Councillors voted to re-introduce the enforcement of parking restrictions from July 3 following complaints from business owners in the municipality. Mayor Tony Driscoll said business owners complained people were not adhering to time limits.
“This is restricting fair access to car parking within our major towns and the flow-on from that lack of access is that our business owners are missing out on potential business because people simply cannot get a park in the appropriate areas,” he said.
Cr Driscoll said officers would enforce signed parking time limits, as well as breaches of restricted parking zones such as disabled parking, loading, bus and taxi zones.
