WCC Announces Free Parking Period For CBD

Parking in Warrnambool’s city centre will be free until at least April 14, after a decision made by Council on Monday night.

Mayor Cr Tony Herbert says it's to support changes that businesses in the region have had to make.

“This measure, introduced by Council on Monday night, recognises that many businesses are moving to providing deliveries and/or click and collect services,”

“This will make it easy for people to come in to the city centre and quickly obtain the items they need.

“Many of our businesses have been quick to adapt to the new regulations introduced to combat the spread of COVID-19.

“Free parking will create more opportunity for people to invest back into Warrnambool and get around the businesses that are able to remain open.

“However, it is still important that people adhere to the time limits, and while we are encouraging people to use the free parking we really don’t want people gathering in large numbers in the city centre.

“It is imperative that we follow the expert medical advice on social distancing.

“We also urge people to take responsibility for their own hand hygiene.

“We must take the advice on hand washing and social distancing extremely seriously if we are to help stop the spread of COVID-19.”
