Temporary parking proposal designed to relieve congestion at Bellambi boat ramp

A TEMPORARY overflow boat and trailer car park proposed by Wollongong City Council, is designed to relieve congestion at Bellambi boat ramp.

The proposal is the result of the growing demand for parking spaces at the boat and trailer car park.

The temporary overflow car park will increase capacity at the popular spot, says Council, and will be located to the west of the current parking area.

The proposal is for a pedestrian and vehicle shared zone designed for safer movement between the boat ramp and the overflow car park.

Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said the temporary car park will meet the demands for more parking near the Bellambi foreshore, which continues to grow in popularity.

The long-term plan for the area will be determined by the Bellambi Foreshore Masterplan, which will include parking needs.

“We have a beautiful coastline, and it’s important to our community that we provide a suitable place to park to ensure people can use this recreational space,’’ Cr Bradbery said.

”We will be developing a long-term plan for this site but we need a short-term option to manage its increasing popularity and to provide safe and equitable access. I encourage those with feedback to jump on Council’s website and share their comments.’’

The community can comment on the proposal until June 18 and feedback can be left online at Our Wollongong website.
