Posted 4 October 2013 by (Hurstville News)

Hurstville City Council today announced it has removed the parking metres within the Treacy Street car park, Hurstville.

Mayor of Hurstville, Cr Jack Jacovou said he welcomed the changes that create more free parking opportunities in close proximity to Hurstville CBD.

“Residents and visitors can now park and shop for a period of three hours for free,” he said.

“The changes are reflected with new signage which has been installed signalling in the area.

“The free 3P parking limits from Monday to Friday, will be in operation between 7.30am and 9.00pm.

“On Saturday and Sunday, the free 3P parking limits will be in operation from 8.00am-4.00pm.”

Mayor Jacovou said that three hours gives people a realistic time-frame for conducting their business, shopping and running errands in the Hurstville CBD.

“So far the feedback from the removal of the parking metres has been most positive,” he said.

“People can go about their business in our vibrant city secure in the knowledge that they don’t have to rush to get back to their car,” he said.

“In addition, it is anticipated these changes will help attract more patrons to local businesses and services, and provide a boost to our local economy.”
