REGULATED PARKING’S AMENDED AMNESTY PREPARES CBD SHOPPERS
Residents will have over a month to prepare for the three hourly regulated parking, with the amnesty period having now been extended until 30 June 2015.
Resulting from initial feedback regarding the location of the regulated parking signs, the amnesty extension will allow any overhanging branches and/or objects limiting the view of the signs to be removed (if possible).
