PARKING RESPITE FOR GOSFORD

Council allocates $1.4M for facility
PARKING congestion around the Gosford CBD will receive a temporary respite with the construction of a short-term car park in Racecourse Road.

Central Coast Council will fork out $1.4M to fund the design and construction of the car park, having identified car parking as an emerging issue across the region.
 
With parking in the CBD to be strained even more through the potential future loss of the privately owned Kibbleplex car parking spaces and many developments underway, news of the temporary car park will be welcomed by Coast drivers.
 
The council will also consider utilising spare capacity at Baker Street Car Park and Central Coast Leagues Club and implementing a park and ride (bus) scheme on the fringe of the CBD.
 
It will seek funding from the State Government to undertake investigations, civil design and construction of a short-term car park at Faunce Street, West Gosford.

Mayor Jane Smith said the issue of car parking in Gosford was critical and complex.
 
“Gosford is growing rapidly and emerging as the commercial heart of the Central Coast,” Cr Smith said.
 
“Part of this transition will involve really looking at how we can accommodate the needs of everyone who need to come into the city centre.
 
“Parking is certainly at a critical point and we need to investigate and implement practical parking solutions.
 
“We also need to look to the medium and longer-term needs of the Gosford City Centre and find solutions for people commuting here every day including options for leaving the car at home and using public transport to and from Gosford City Centre.”
