More Car Parking

A key sticking point for many traders has been the discussion over car parking provisions under QVM infrastructure plans but a new proposal may fix that.

The CoM has been steadfast in providing no more than 720 car spaces at sites including the new Munro Building and underground at the market. Traders are seeking more. Clearly the CoM focus on reducing the number of cars coming into our city, and the desire by traders to cling to customer visits by car, have been at odds with each other.

A new proposal will be put to Council by the city’s management next Tuesday to increase the number of car spaces to 1000. This will be good news for those traders who rely on customers visiting our market by car.
