Parking changes in Nagambie

New parking time limits in High St, Nagambie, are being introduced, aimed at making the High Street precinct more accessible to visitors and residents of the town.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Amanda McClaren said that the new parking limits were in response to direct feedback from business-owners and Nagambie residents.

“With increased visitation to Nagambie in recent years, the two-hour restrictions to the parking means that people coming to town should find it easier to find short-term parking in the busy High St area,” Cr McClaren said.

“Over the years, there were different parking limits in the street and so this will make all the parking conditions the same and end any existing confusion about what can be done.”

Cr McClaren said the two hour time limits would be in place from 8am to 5pm seven days a week.

“This means that visitors enjoying the tourism accommodation in Nagambie will be able to legally park their vehicles overnight,” she said.

“This is a similar arrangement to what we have in place in other towns in terms of timed parking and this has worked well, providing a good balance for all parking users.”

Cr McClaren said the decision to change the parking was the result of a review over several months to provide a clear understanding about the need and turnover of the parking bays in Nagambie.

“We would also like to reiterate that there is ample long-term parking available in the town in the side streets so we would ask that anyone who needs this to support the changes by parking their vehicles in these areas.

“We would also encourage our business owners and Nagambie residents to support this initiative by directing people who are staying in the town for a longer time period to park in the appropriate bays.”

Cr McClaren said that signs notifying people about the new arrangements would be erected during March.
