CBD parking patrols to resume
Published on 20 May 2020
In coming weeks, more Launceston businesses will be re-opening and we expect to see increasing activity in our CBD as State and Federal Government health restrictions ease.
While we've been undertaking minimal parking enforcement work since March, we'd like people to be aware that our parking patrols will resume from Monday, May 25.
It is important for the effective functioning of the city to ensure regular turnover of parking spaces in our CBD, which gives more people a chance to park in any given space throughout the day to access our many businesses.
Parking in one of our off-street car parks is cheaper if you plan to stay longer, and there is two hours' free parking in our multi-storey car parks every day between 3.30pm and 5.30pm.
If you don't carry coins, download the EasyPark smartphone app - a convenient, contactless and cashless way to pay for parking, which allows you to pay only for the time you use.
If you'd prefer not to have to find a parking space in the CBD at all, consider parking at Inveresk and catching the FREE Tiger Bus into town, or using other forms of public transport.
Parking in Launceston remains in high demand and its management is important to ensure there is a level playing field for both businesses and shoppers.
