At the previous week’s briefing session, staff highlighted issues with the City’s current parking laws that could potentially see any resident apply for a permit anywhere in its boundaries.
But after it was withdrawn, the City’s corporate services director Noelene Jennings said they were confident that parking local laws were sound and allowed for adequate residential parking permits.
‘This item was withdrawn from the July 22 meeting to ensure that all operational components are in place and ready prior to council making a decision,’ she said.
‘This will ensure the community can see effective delivery flowing from council decisions.
‘These operational matters are currently under review and as soon as practicably possible the paper will be re-presented to council.’
Residents and businesses in the train station precinct called for parking permits after three-hour restrictions were introduced in 2012.
