The Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA) today held fruitful discussions with interested businesses, property owners and traders operating in the designated inner city mobile parking metre programme. The issues raised by business will be thoroughly investigated and considered before the programme gets finalized in the later part of 2016. Business representatives in attendance included a range of sectors from financial services, architects, retailers and a significant number of major property owners in the Central Business District.
Presenting the mobile parking metre plan, MBDA Chief Executive Officer Pierre Voges reiterated the MBDA’s intentions for the programme “We want to see an efficient, effective, fair and equitable use of parking bays in the City. Through this programme the MBDA will provide for a convenient, safe, secure parking environment whilst creating much needed formal employment opportunities for most of the currently unregulated car guards”.
A second meeting with residents will take place on Thursday the 9th of June at 6pm to discuss issues that might affect the broader community in the pilot areas. The venue for the residents meeting is The Granary, Stanley Street in Richmond Hill.
Businesses wishing to give further input may do so by sending their submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line – Mobile Parking.
