CLOSURE FOR POPULAR CAR PARK?

Bid to curb anti social behaviour at Terrigal
IN a bid to curb anti-social behaviour, Central Coast council is set to close off access to the upper storeys of the Wilson Road carpark at Terrigal late at night.
 
Residents have until May 27 to state their preference for one of two options on Central Coast Council’s Your Voice Our Coast online hub.
 
Option one would see a security gate installed on level 2, closing off access to level 2 and upwards, leaving only ground floor parking available from midnight or 1am and restricting pedestrian access.
 
This would leave only 110 parking spots available.
 
Option two would see the security gate installed on level 3, closing off access to level 3 and up to both vehicles and pedestrians and leaving access to parking on the ground floor and levels 2 and 2A.
 
As this would still leave access to 220 parking spots, it would commence earlier, at 10pm or 11pm.
 
Access to any vehicles locked in the carpark overnight would incur a release fee during the hours the carpark is closed.
 
CCTV cameras have already been installed in the car park, and are monitored by parking station staff during business hours.
 
Footage is also fed live to Gosford Police Station, but anti-social behaviour continues.
 
Central Coast Mayor, Jane Smith, said concerns had been raised by residents and businesses about anti-social behaviour occurring on the upper levels late at night.
 
Speed humps are also set to be installed at the carpark to reduce speeding vehicles and improve pedestrian safety.
 
Gosford City Car Park and Kibbleplex Car Park are closed overnight and anti-social behaviour within these carparks at night is not an issue.
