The BCC are glad to see the ACT Government is about to commence its smart parking trial. It is being trialled in Manuka.
The BCC were the only community council or organisation to put a submission in on smart parking, and were invited by the team conducting the research to a meeting to discuss our ideas.
That submission is here.
We asked that any trial commence in Belconnen, as it had well researched parking issues and parking pressures.
With the introduction of a Canberra wide wifi network, and smart parking apps on peoples smartphones, the opportunity exists for smarter management of existing parking.
We look forward to further expansion of the trial into Belconnen.
