Making parking fairer in Riverside precinct


Background

The Riverside parking study was conducted in November 2015 which community members contributed to through a survey. The information received was used to create a draft parking strategy which was placed on public exhibition during August/ September 2016. The feedback received during the exhibition, along with a study of parking occupancy data, was used to develop a series of final recommendations for improving parking in the Riverside area. This was considered and adopted by Council at a meeting on 6 December 2016.
