I attended the Your Move Parking forum at Albert Facey House. Yes, I took the train.
Parking isn’t a right, it is a privilege and one that comes with responsibility. Parking isn’t free and as the Your Move reminded us at the August Parking forum it is in fact very, very expensive. It could cost upwards of $70k per bay. What could your local authority or business do with that budget? Something good?
Parking needs to be a part of many business plans but, that doesn’t mean planning for lots of parking it could mean planning out parking.
Do you need to drive to your destination? Really? Maybe you haven’t explored other options. You could make the chore, that you think requires a car trip, an outing instead. Enjoy the journey, bring a friend and make a day of it – without the car.
I learned a lot and from the buzz around the tables and in the hall afterwards it was a good event for everyone who attended. I walked back to the office in Subiaco, I didn’t need to find my car or pay for parking.
