Revised parking fees introduced in July

News Article Date: 
Monday, 3 July 2017

Warrnambool’s parking fees have been revised for the 2017-2018 financial year with some fees falling and others rising.

From July 3 the all-day Off-Kepler Street and Cramond and Dickson car parks will be $3 a day, down from $4.20.

Other all-day car parks at the Art Gallery, Off-Koroit Street, Fairy Street and Grace Avenue will rise from $2 a day to $3 a day.

The Coles Car Park will be $1.40 an hour, up from 90c an hour, with the same price increase applied to the Ozone Car Park and on-street multi-bay parking meters.

The car park under Target will remain unchanged at $1.10 an hour.

“Revenue derived from parking meters goes towards maintaining existing car parks, to enforcing time limits and towards new car parks and paths,” Director City Infrastructure Scott Cavanagh said.

“Council will continue to provide a 15-minute grace period for motorists who have paid for parking and there is also the option to pay in 10c increments.

“With about 4000 car parking spaces in and around the city centre – including more than 1000 free spaces within walking distance of Liebig Street – there are choices to suit shoppers and commuters.”

The revised parking fees were included in the recently adopted 2017-2018 Council Budget.

Council and the Victorian Government are working on a parking project that will see the creation of more than 100 car parking spaces at the railway station precinct.

“Parking fees in the city centre mean that this is a user pays service.

“The time limits ensure there is a turnover of vehicles using the spaces, which is what traders require,” Mr Cavanagh said.

“Enforced time limits in our on and off-street parking keep parking spaces available for shoppers.“
