Dunsborough car parking time limits could reduce

Car parking time limits in Dunsborough’s town centre could be reduced from three to two hours if City of Busselton councillors agree to changes proposed by city officers.

At next week’s council meeting, councillors will be asked to vote on a number of public car parking changes in Dunsborough.

Currently, the city manage 630 parking bays in Dunsborough. It is estimated there are a further 640 parking bays on private land.

Included in the city’s proposal are an additional four motorcycle bays on Seymour Boulevard along with the relocation of two bus bays.

An additional disability bay would be installed on Prowse Way and another disability bay would be relocated from Dunsborough Place to Chieftan Crescent.

A no standing restriction on the eastern side of Chieftain Crescent has also been recommended and two bays on Dunn Bay Road could become 15 minute limits.

Recently, the Dunsborough Centrepoint Shopping Centre announced it would add time limits to its car park after they received complaints from tenants that customers where unable to find car bays.

Stocker Preston commercial manager John Reid said the centre would introduce two-hour timed park and hire a parking ranger to monitor the bays and issue fines.
