Free off-street parking in the CBD

News Article Date:

Visitors to Warrnambool’s city centre will be able to enjoy free parking in most off-street car parks from Monday December 7 to Friday January 29.

The two-month free parking is available at the Art Gallery, Parkers, Cramond & Dickson, Off-Koroit, Off-Kepler, Off-Fairy and Ozone car parks.

Parking will be free in these car parks but the existing time limits, displayed on the signs in each car park, will still apply.

“For example in Ozone Carpark there is a section with a two-hour time limit and another section with a four-hour limit – motorists must not stay longer than the limits indicated on the sign,” Manager Local Laws Ian Fitzgibbon said.

“Motorists must print and display a free ticket in order to avoid a fine.”

Manager City Renewal Tanya Egan encouraged CBD shopkeepers to help promote the initiative to customers.

“While off-street parking has always been free over weekends, retailers can help spread the word about the free parking from Monday to Friday over this two-month period,” Ms Egan said.

The time limits will still be in place so it is important that motorists print and display a ticket to avoid a parking fine.

Car parks not included in the free parking initiative are the Grace Ave Carpark,  Coles-Younger Carpark and the underground carpark at Target.

Motorists will still need to pay for on-street parking where indicated by signs.

Since 2009 Council has increased its supply of parking in the City Centre from an estimated 3500 public car parks to 3800 today. The majority of these car parks are owned and managed by Council.
