Trials have begun for extended three hour parking in Cleveland CBD and 12 shared car and boat parking bays at Wellington Point Reserve.
Redland City Mayor, Karen Williams said 367 two-hour spaces in Cleveland will be extended to three-hours for the six month trial.
“New signage is currently being installed that will bring the available three-hour onstreet parking sites in the Cleveland CBD to 427 from a total of 790 on-street parking sites.
“I am committed to finding the right balance of CBD parking options in response to calls from business and residents for longer CBD parking options.
“We want to revitalise the Cleveland CBD and one way we can help do this, is to encourage people to shop there.
“I hope these changes will be a positive outcome for those visiting Cleveland and help them to spend more time and money in this attractive city centre and provide sufficient time for people to go about their business.
“The important three-month trial at Wellington Point Reserve will allow cars to park in 12 of the cars-with-trailers parking bays between the hours of 1pm-10pm each day.
“The shared parking bays are in the first row of car trailer parking adjacent to the toilet block and will be clearly signed.
“The Wellington Point trial also includes two 15-minute drop-off zones, one located near the western playground, and one near the southern boat ramp.
“I am hoping all users will give these trials a fair go and park within the parking requirements.”
Both trials will be monitored through regular patrols by Council’s local laws officers and through customer feedback and compliance and infringement results.
