The Council recently published the discussion paper entitled ‘Parking in Shepparton’s Central Business District’ for community consultation.
The discussion paper was prepared to review new parking utilisation data and make recommendations regarding future strategy. The paper shows that Shepparton does not have a parking problem so much as the perception of a parking problem arising from unmet expectations.
While there may not be a shortage of parking, it is certainly true that the location and form of current parking is far from ideal. The Council will now prepare a Parking Strategy to manage existing and future parking requirements of the Shepparton CBD.
