In 2020, and prior to the official release of Blueprint 100, we produced the Tamworth CBD Parking Strategy 2020-2030. A key action from this strategy was to "review the Tamworth CBD Parking Strategy at least every 3-4 years to ensure the strategic direction and align actions with Council's Community Strategic Plan."
To ensure the strategy meets the growing needs of our community, we have decided to review and update the strategy, and also extend it across our towns and villages, plus the specific focus areas of the Sports and Entertainment Precinct and Bridge Street.
Other factors for updating the strategy include:
- the rising number of car ownership across the region;
- the increased use of electric vehicles;
- an ageing population; and
- various development projects planned within the region.
Prior to the review of the strategy a community survey will take place to determine the needs of the community and identify areas of improvement and/or concern.
Have your Say
To help us understand the community's priorities when it comes to parking, we ran a community survey to learn more. All entries in the survey will go in the draw to win a $250 fuel voucher. (T&Cs apply)
The results of this survey will help ensure the strategy meets the needs of our growing community and delivers parking that is fit for purpose.
All survey responses will be considered for inclusion in the Tamworth Regional Car Parking Strategy. The draft strategy will go on public exhibition for community feedback.
Thank you to everyone who completed the online survey and provided valuable feedback on car parking around the region.
Our winners have been drawn:
- Naomi Simmons
