Of­fi­cers to en­force park­ing re­stric­tions

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.
