Tradespeople working in CBD:
There are, on a number of occasions, tradespeople who need to use parking spaces in the CBD while working on buildings or shops. Parking spaces are available for all tradespeople to hire on a daily basis.
To hire parking spaces please contact the Parking Department on 209 0330 to make arrangements.
Council have no issue with tradespersons using any parking spaces (metered or time zoned) while working in the CBD and advise that you must contact the Parking Department before using these spaces.
Tradespeople who do not feed the meter or have not hired a parking space will be issued with an infringement notice for failing to comply with the parking restrictions.
