Did I read correctly that the business owner had a deal with Council - but that it was in 1985 - 31 years ago? I think we all have to accept that some things change, especially over that period of time.
The buildings that those car parks were supposed to service are still there. If they needed the car parks 31 years ago, they still need them today. Especially as spaces are seeming to dissappear around town while we are getting more visitors all the time. How would you feel if you paid tens of thousands of dollars to the council for the establishment of car parking spaces that either were never generated, or subsequently 'disappeared', or that money just subsumed into general revenue?
It was a fabulous weekend! I'd like to say a huge thank you to all involved - and particularly to Isaac, Jack, Annie, Brennan and all the rest of the dev's for the patience and willingness to share their expertise not only with the children, but also us older gamers. We'll be back next year!
Fantastic. Can't believe in today's world that it has taken so long to do this. Reading that some blind people have been short changed disgusts me as you have to think how and why, were they deliberate in short changing them because of their disability? Were they taken advantage of? These new notes will see such actions prevented and I am sure the vision impaired will be relieved and won't be taken for as fools.
Here's a plan. Let's do what they did in Byron Bay to relieve parking pressure. Pay parking with parking permits for residents.
Suggest council provide free bikes stationed at Merimbula boat ramp, that can be ridden into Beach Street and vice versa. Other councils provide a free bicycle service with pick up and drop off parking points around town.
