New four-hour signs were erected earlier this year in the CBD including Kent, Richmond and Wharf Sts, in areas which used to be all-day parking, drawing the ire of some drivers.

Wednesday’s debate between councillors came after rural Cr Hansen called for a review into the parking changes, with a report to be provided on October 21.

“It’s time to admit it was a wrong decision and move on,” he said.

Mayor Gerard O’Connell said the council was always going to do a review.

“It’s not about a right and wrong, it’s about getting an outcome that’s best,” he said.

Cr Hansen’s call for a report was rejected by seven votes to four.

Maryborough councillor Daniel Sanderson followed with a motion of his own, calling for a review to begin in October.

Cr Sanderson’s motion was passed 6-4 and the council will do a review into the Maryborough parking strategy in October.

BEST THING TO HAVE HAPPENED TO HAVE A MAXIMUM PARKING TIME.
You cannot have people parking in the main city street all day including business owners & workers.

Shoppers go into the city, do their business over an hour or two & leave. Parking must be available to the shoppers not to shop workers in town.

All day parkers can park on the shop property or just outside of the CBD if they want to park all day.

The complainers about max times for central city parking need to get out from under their rocks & realize the new parking initiative will help revitalize the city centre.

A vacant lot in the city where a multi-level carpark can be built by council or a developer for all day parkers, but they pay for it just like in any other city centre…
