Free parking promised at Coffs hospital

DEAR News Of The Area,

I NOTE that the NSW Liberal and Nationals Government have announced free parking at Coffs Harbour Health Campus from 1 July 2023 if re-elected (NOTA 10 March 2023).

Parking fees were introduced there several years ago, with the argument that such a move would reduce the congestion then being experienced.

I think this move was very successful – my experience has been that since its introduction, paid visitor parking has always been readily available, and there is a mechanism for free parking for those eligible (pensioners etc).

Will the abolition of parking fees result in a return to the congested times of a few years back?

I haven’t seen any discussion of this central point.

Coffs Harbour.
