Media Release

16 May 2013

The National Capital Authority invites public comment on the allocation of car parks for long stay and short stay on National Land from 1 July 2014.

The Australian Government announced, as part of the 2013-14 Budget, that pay parking will be introduced in Parkes, Barton, Russell and Acton. The National Capital Authority will implement the pay parking arrangements on behalf of the Australian Government.

NCA Chief Executive, Gary Rake said the aim of the consultation is to determine the optimal mix of parking allocation.

'We are asking for feedback on which car parks should be set aside for long-stay and short-stay parking,' Mr Rake said.

'Public comments received during the consultation period will be considered as we plan for the implementation of pay parking next year,' he said.

Community feedback can be made:

Drop-in sessions will be held at the National Capital Authority offices, Ground Floor, Treasury Building, King Edward Terrace, Parkes on Thursday 30 May. RSVPs essential and can be made at www.nationalcapital.gov.au/haveyoursay.

Comments will be received until Wednesday 26 June 2013.

A fact sheet on the implementation of pay parking on national land is also available on the NCA's consultation website.
