The City of Ballarat’s Smarter Parking Plan Phase 2 roll out will begin on December 1, with current CBD parking meters starting to be removed and new infrastructure installed.
Parking meters that take coins and credit cards, along with a Smartphone app, will switch on in February 2020.
Clearly marked number plate recognition vehicles will start operating across the municipality in December.
While the roll out takes place, CBD on-street parking will be free from December 1 to January 31, although time limits will still apply.
Key elements of the Smarter Parking Plan infrastructure include:
- You will pay only for the time you actually use
- You will get one hour free, per vehicle, per day
- No more tickets
- No more having to go back to your car - you can top up at any meter
- The phone app is free to download
