CITY of Perth Commissioners are set to reduce parking fees at Point Fraser Car Park, three weeks after Ku De Ta entered voluntary administration.

Before the On The Point hospitality hub opened, motorists were charged $2.90 per hour Monday to Sunday to park, with a Monday to Friday 10-hour maximum for $12.20.

The night rate was $8.40 with a $10.10, 10-hour maximum on weekends and public holidays.

After the development opened, charges went up to $4 per hour Monday to Sunday 6am to 5.59pm with a $12 flat rate from 6pm to 5.59am.

The City investigated four price reductions options, with some including limited free parking.

Commissioners will tonight vote on a $3 hourly rate, with a $10 flat rate from 6pm to 6am.

KPMG administrators told Ku De Ta staff on July 6 that full payment of wages could not be guaranteed and several walked out.
