Townsville City Council On Santa's Nice List After Offering Free Parking In The City

For the fourth year, Townsville City Council have landed on Santa's nice list after giving us FREE parking in the CBD for December. 

Don't get too carried away though swiping your card, the free spots run out after 2 hours. 

Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill is hoping the incentive will encourage locals and visitors to support city businesses.

“Townsville is lucky to have one of a kind boutiques and traders in the CBD – it would be great to see residents taking advantage of the free parking and supporting local businesses,” Cr Hill said.

“Council is implementing lots of initiatives to bring the community into the city such as the Street Art program or the free 15 minute parking introduced earlier in the year.

“The two hour free parking for Christmas is just another way we try to activate the CBD and provide a boost for city traders.” 

The free parking will apply to all 2P spaces but the time limit will still apply and be enforced to give all residents a chance to park for free.

Should the 2 hour time limit be extended or is it enough? Tell us on Facey!
