Why a paid permit?
All dedicated business parking bays in Moreland require the interested business to purchase a paid permit. Fees are charged for residential and business parking permits as a way to fairly manage public car parking.
Why are we proposing a new parking site for traders?
This change is in response to requests from businesses trading in Bonwick Street and Jukes Road for dedicated business parking. This proposal aims to strike a balance between the need for reliable parking for traders, and the availability of parking for customers visiting the Bonwick Street shopping strip and surrounds.
