Ettalong and Umina parking surveys planned
Parking surveys on the Peninsula are expected to be extended beyond Woy Woy, according to a statement from Central Coast Council.
Surveys are planned during the summer months to gauge the shortage experienced in Ettalong and Umina.
"These will form part of a further report later in 2019," the Council statement said, in answer to questions from Peninsula News.
"The initial car parking study is focused on commuter parking along the train line at Central Coast train stations," it said, hence the initial focus on Woy Woy.
One of the options listed for Woy Woy in the survey was a parking station 800 m from the town centre with a park and ride bus service.
The statement from Council said it was still investigating a number of locations.
It said the survey, which is still open for comment, was designed to see if local residents would walk 800 metres from a parking location.
"It is no way implied that we have a site and are constructing anything at this stage," it said.
"The second stage of the commuter car parking study is due back to Council in early 2019 and some recommendations on suitable sites for commuter car parking stations will form part of that report.
"Funding of any future infrastructure would be either out of Council's future capital budget or could be sought from either the State or Federal Government.
