Mackay introduces paid monthly parking permits


Mackay Regional Council has recently announced the
development of an online paid parking system, allowing customers to
pre-purchase their parking permits. The permits apply for off-street car
parking in five car parks in the CBD, and are available for periods of one,
three, six or twelve months.
 
You can view the announcement on the Mackay Regional Council website here, and the online purchase portal here.

Parking & Traffic Consultants observes that whilst
this may make the process easier for both revenue collection and customers’
ease of payment, what it fundamentally won’t address is turnover and parking
space availability within these parking stations.

Council’s initiative makes it easier for full time
office workers to pay for parking in CBD car parks. Subject to there being an
adequate parking supply in Mackay, this new procedure should indeed mean that
“parking in the CBD has never been so easy”!
