Parking a priority for tenants
TRADERS and owners in the Carlton Shopping Centre in East Perth will soon be getting some parking relief.

Council is taking steps to stop commuters using the shopping centre’s short-term parking bays for all day parking.

Councillor Laurance Goodman told council the centre was getting clogged by long-term stayers.

“The tenants were under the impression that they couldn’t do anything about it,” Mr Goodman said.

Council is currently modifying the streetscape in the area and ten on-street parking bays will go. Mr Goodman proposed two parking bays be kept.

Other modifications to the street include widening of footpaths and further tree planting.

Councillor Jim Leahy said tenants at the shopping centre wanted parking rather than the trees.

“The trees don’t bring too many customers,” Mr Leahy said.

Councillor Janet Davidson said the key issue was the livelihood of the retailers in the area.

“I’m happy with the enhancement but conscious of the fact that we need loading bays and parking there,” she said.
