The South Australian State Government has proposed a car park levy for the Adelaide City Council region, at a rate of $750 per space.
According to AdelaideNow.com.au, the council has defended the decision, pointing out that Adelaide will still have cheaper parking fees and the highest number of available parking spaces than any other Australian capital.
This appears to correlate with research by commercial property agency Colliers International, who reported earlier this year that there were more city-centre car parks per city-centre worker in Adelaide than any other Australian capital city.
The levy would be applied to both off-street and on-street ticketed parking spaces from July 2014.
This move by the South Australian government leaves Brisbane as the only capital city without a parking levy. Watch this space!
