Clare and Gilbert Valley Council have recently stated, there will be no change to the amount developers must contribute to council to cover car parking within their site.
Mayor Wayne Thomas stated that, “Usually the required number of car parks for business premises can be provided on site, but if this is not possible there is a charge of $3,500 per car park to defray the costs to council for the construction of public car parks to meet demand.”
The fee of $3,500 per car park was set back in 2003 and will remain the same due to community feedback.
Council released a public survey along with public forums in relation to the car parking contribution policy; ultimately deciding to adopt an updated policy but retain the previous contribution amount.
