Mayor: No plans for parallel parking in Firebrace Street
Published on 04 December 2019
Mayor Mark Radford has moved to re-assure Horsham people that there are no plans to introduce parallel parking in the central activity district.
“There are no proposals before our Council to implement parallel parking in Firebrace Street and central Horsham,” Cr Radford said.
“Any future alterations to central Horsham parking would always involve consultation with business owners and the wider community.
“Angle parking has been in Horsham for a very long time. It works and I see no reason to change it.
“The Draft City to River Masterplan does not include extra parallel parking in Firebrace Street.
“The Draft Horsham Urban Transport Plan, currently out for comment, lists parallel parking as one possible way to improve a limited amount of streetscapes. However there is no plan for full scale parking changes, and certainly no reference to Firebrace Street,” he said.
