Forbes Shire Council is delivering on its commitment to ease traffic woes in the CBD with parking times being enforced by Council Rangers. The demand for on-street parking spaces in the CBD is extremely high, and Council Rangers will play an important role in administering and enforcing the restrictions on stopping and parking to ensure safe, efficient and equitable road use for everyone.
“It is so very important to begin enforcing the parking restrictions in our CBD at this point in time,” says Forbes Shire Mayor, Phyllis Miller OAM. “Our retailers are finding the drought hard and we need to give passing travellers a place to park, so that they will spend money in town.”
“It’s a good thing for our town, we need to ensure our businesses are accessible for customers,” says Marg Duggan, President of Forbes Business Chamber and local business owner. “It is especially important to have these parking spaces available for less mobile customers.”
The trial period for the introduction of parking infringements is coming to a close and from 8 October parking fines will be administered.
