Shoppers are being encouraged to buy local this Christmas, with the help of council’s free parking in the Caloundra CBD.
The Caloundra parking amnesty will run from Sunday, December 1, 2019 to Monday, January 27, 2020.
The parking meters will be switched off but signed time limits will still apply.
Division 2 Councillor Tim Dwyer said free 2P parking is a great way to bring visitors and locals into the CBD and encourage them to shop local.
“The amnesty period will cover the pre-Christmas shopping time and the post-Christmas summer sales, both important retail engagement periods for locals as well as visitors to town,” Cr Dwyer said.
“Funds raised throughout the year by Caloundra’s parking meters are used for a range of projects in downtown Caloundra, including street activation, public facilities and business support programs.
“During this period, parking officers will continue patrolling downtown Caloundra to address compliance with parking regulations, and in turn, ensure parking availability is optimised during the Christmas holidays.”
On and off street parking is available at various locations throughout Caloundra. For more details visit council’s website www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.
