Wollongong Council activates pro-rata parking fees


The
Illawarra Mercury reported last week (Sept 14) that the Wollongong City Council
has now implemented pro-rata parking fees for their on-street parking meters.

Previously
priced at a $2 flat fee, the meters now allow motorists to pay only for the
time they intend to use, with parking being charged at $1 an hour (50c for half
an hour) in spaces up to two hours, and 75c an hour in three-hour and four-hour
zones. The machines will accept as little as 10c for six minutes of parking,
and the maximum payment will be $3, which would buy four hours in a four-hour
parking zone.

According
to the Mercury, Council is also investigating a 10-hour parking zone for the
fringe of the CBD and has removed several meter zones in the CBD as well,
following community feedback on the roll-out.
