Central Carpark Option
Over 60% of community supported a change in this area.The option proposed creates a dedicated pathway that protects pedestrians from vehicle traffic. This option reduces the number of car park spaces lost from 15 spaces (in previous option) down to 6 spaces. It also creates a garden bed under the trees, supporting the growth of this mature trees.
Opportunity to create a new plaza in East Concourse to provide new tree and planting opportunities, a new space to meet, gather and improve pedestrian amenity. All options below require some loss of carparking spaces to varying degree and pruning of street trees.
Which location do you prefer?
- Option 1 - Southern Plaza

Opportunity to improve the pedestrian connection, functionality and amenity of the Central Car Park.
Three options to make it easier to move through the car park on foot while retaining the existing trees
- Option 1 is a clearly designated path within a shared space for cars and pedestrians
- Option 2 is a separate path for pedestrians along the centre of the car park under the trees requires the loss of 15 carparking spaces.
- Option 3 is a separate path for pedestrians along the centre of the car park under the trees requires a loss of 8 carparking spaces.
- A separate, dedicated path for pedestrians down one side of the central median, under the trees
- Conversion to 45 degree parking and a one way system on the side with the path for ease of parking
- Retain 90 degree parking and a two way system on the other side
- Complement existing trees with low garden bed planting in the central median
- Only possible with a loss of 8 car parking spaces
