The Bega Valley Shire Council has announced that timed parking restrictions have been reintroduced across the Shire.
“During the bushfire crisis we relaxed the timed parking restrictions, so residents and visitors didn’t have the additional worry of being booked while they were seeking help,” Director of Community, Environment and Planning, Alice Howe said.
“We now need to support local businesses and improve parking turnover in our major towns and coastal areas.
“Regulated parking has been reintroduced to Bega, Merimbula, Pambula, Eden and Bermagui.
“Our parking rangers are out and about patrolling car parks, so be sure to check parking signs so you can monitor your stay at a particular location.”
The Chambers of Commerce have welcomed the reintroduction of timed parking across the Shire, saying it will help increase the flow of foot traffic into shops and shopping centres.
