Business owners call for more all-day parking in Bathurst's CBD

Business owners call for more all-day parking in Bathurst's CBD

Bathurst business owners are concerned the lack of all-day parking spaces could impact their businesses.

RSL General Manager Peter Sargent says customers are fed up with the difficulty of finding a park and says after 11am most weekdays there was not a single all-day park available in the CBD. 

Mr Sargent says the congestion impacts the club’s lunch trade as senior citizens do not want to walk long distances.

But Bathurst Regional Council’s Traffic Committee Chairman Councillor Warren Aubin says the council is already addressing the issue, approving the extension of 27 three-hour parking spaces into all-day parking spaces.

Councillor Aubin says the Council’s goal is to eventually build a multi-level car park in future years, but it will depend on demand.

A report will go before council tomorrow night, about the current car parking situation.
