A LACK of parking for workers on the Karrinyup Shopping Centre redevelopment continues to impact surrounding streets.

The City of Stirling issued 85 caution notices from March to early April to cars parked illegally on residential streets near the centre, mainly on Paine Court.

A City spokeswoman said the notices were in response to complaints from residents and drivers.

Sonia Allin was working in the area on April 4 and provided a photo showing cautions issued to at least 10 drivers on Paine Court.

Residents and centre staff previously raised concerns that parking was not provided to construction workers employed by Multiplex to work on the redevelopment.

In November, centre developer AMP Capital said it was working to find a “more permanent, amicable solution”, which according to the City was expected to be in place by January.

Planning and development director Ross Povey said the City was currently assessing a development application for an offsite carpark to accommodate project workers.

“The City has also recently contacted AMP regarding construction workers parking on local verges and roads and AMP is working to manage the issue,” he said.

Karrinyup institution to stay

An AMP Capital spokeswoman said she expected the carpark to be operation in the “coming weeks”.

“Our priority throughout the development is to ensure sufficient parking remains available for customers and that we are mindful of our neighbours,” she said.

“Multiplex has advised they have notified all construction workers that they are not to park outside of permitted areas.”
