The Canberra Liberals don’t agree with the Barr government’s plans for paid parking in the Phillip Commercial Precinct and the Opposition would not proceed with what has been proposed, Shadow Minister for Small Business Andrew Wall said today.
“Unlike the government, the Canberra Liberals will be happy to consult with local businesses and look to accommodate their needs. There should be a fairer mix of short stay, long stay and permit parking in Phillip,” Mr Wall said.
“Removing the government’s paid parking is a live option. As far as we’re concerned, everything is on the table for discussion. The government has failed to consult on parking changes, but the Canberra Liberals will,” Mr Wall concluded.
Andrew Wall will address businesses at a meeting on the issue in Phillip this afternoon.
When: 5pm today 12th May.
Where: Dundas Court West, Phillip.
