Free one-hour parking trial in CBD car park

News Article Date: 
Friday, 17 April 2015

Free one-hour off-street parking will be offered in on one of Warrnambool’s city centre car parks from Monday, April 20.

The free one-hour parking trial in Parkers Carpark will be offered until June 26 and is one of several parking initiatives being introduced by Warrnambool City Council.

Parkers carpark is situated between Koroit and Lava streets to the east of Liebig Street.

“A recent survey of visitors to the CBD showed that more than half the trips to the CBD during weekdays were for less than an hour,” Acting Local Laws Manager Peter McArdle said.

“The free parking trial period will allow us to see if we can make better use of Parkers Carpark and whether free parking will make a meaningful difference to activity in the city centre.

"It's important for motorists taking up the free one-hour option to remember they must print and display a free parking ticket."

Other parking initiatives decided on by Council at its April meeting included the introduction of a $50 prepaid parking card and the option to buy a weekly ticket for all off-street Council carparks.

“The prepaid card provides businesses with fleet cars a convenient option and also caters for those who may not carry cash or a credit card,” Mr McArdle said.

The prepaid cards can be bought at the Civic Centre, 25 Liebig Street, Warrnambool.

“The weekly ticket also offers a convenient option for commuters who use the off-street carparks including the Art Gallery, Cramond and Dickson, Kepler Street, Koroit Street, all-day section of Parkers, Grace Avenue and Fairy Street carparks,” Mr McArdle said.
