Parking plan re-opened for public comment

Woy Woy is a focus area of Central Coast Council's draft Parking Study and Implementation Plan which is being re-opened for public comment until Sunday, August 16.

Council's Woy Woy Master Plan aims to develop the town centre as a major growth area and with increased commercial development comes further demand for car parking.

The report states that the train station and commercial centre are already parking hot spots which are close to reaching capacity and there is limited spare spaces to cope with all-day parking demands.

The draft parking study proposes short-term action, between 2020-25, including line marking and signage to reinforce existing two-hour parking at Woy Woy Oval.

It recommends expansion of an on-demand bus service for Woy Woy.

It also suggests a park and ride scheme which will provide parking on the fringe of the centre and a shuttle bus loop service around the area.

If implemented, the feasibility of all-day commuter car parking in Deepwater Plaza parking station would be investigated.

A long-term action plan, to be completed by 2040, was to construct a 400-space car parking station on the fringe of the Woy Woy at an estimated cost of $10 million.

The study also suggested improved public and other transport options.

Improvements to parking at Umina Beach and Ettalong are also included in the plan.

This draft parking study and implementation plan is being re-exhibited for further feedback until 5pm August 16.
