27 Optimistic but parking will be an issue for many businesses. Light rail will be most beneficial for
those doing multiple activities or special activities; least beneficial for those not conducting 11/2/2018 6:09 PM
extensive activity.

28 As an employee speaking to our clients, they also find parking close to our building very difficult
11/2/2018 5:30 PM
29 Most of our clients are in or around the CBD and our Business does not rely on passing trade so it
makes sense for us to be here. Our major issue is the availability of parking or transport for staff 11/2120182:08 PM

5 We have 600 people in our contact centre. And currently parking between $15 and $20 A DAY, for 11/19/2018 6:45 AM
parking. That'sif we can find a park. Tradesman and court house patrons also use my preferred
car park, forcing to try and find a street car, costing more money. If I'm too slow, or stuck at work to
put more money into the meter, I get a parking ticket. It's a vicious cycle. I live 5kms away from the
city, but need to change buses twice to get able to get home. And that's if the schedule matches
up

16 Where I work in Hunter Street, good staff have resigned due to transport and parking stress. This 11/18/20188:10 AM
is has had a massive impact on our businessand ultimately our customers. On a second point the
council approves a Harris Farm Super store for Darby Street without any consideration of where
their 60 staff park each day, local streets parked out up to Parkway Avenue daily as cbd staff fight
for parks. Traffic on Darby Street is not fit to service the increased traffic turning into Harris Farm
there has also been increase of daily truck movements along Darby Street to delivere goods and
produce to Harris Farm.This behaviour is not sustainable. The council should be ashamed of ever
allowing this business to open in the location.

26 Against. Restricting trade. People avoid Honeysuckle as they cant park anywhere. 11/14/2018 4:37 PM
27 I was using public transport before the route changes, even with the nightmare of parking in the 11/13/2018 9:48 PM
CBD, driving in is still a better option.

28 We were ver negatively impacted by the construction of the light rail. The completion of the rail 11/12/2018 5:21 PM
works has failed to see much of an improvement as yet - I think this is due to - change of people's
habits over the lengthy construction period, roads still being congested and or blocked in the CBD,
and reductionin parking spaces directly outside the premesis and the challenge of finding a park
on both hunter and king streets

29 Wickham Interchange has had a positive impact on Honeysuckle office workers but the removal of 11/12/2018 2:22 PM
parking has created stress.

30 Have had to change hours of business and make special arrangements for staff 11/12/2018 11:49 AM
31 exiting car park has changed to prevent right turn out of car park, this now makes my trip home 11/12/2018 11:33 AM
longer. (
32 Taking away the parking is hurting every business, it's plain andsimple. Footpaths are upgraded, 11/12/2018 6:08 AM
which is nice. But we seriously need a bus network that caters for everyone, like Sydney. Which
probably means they would have to run a lot of new routes that will be mostly empty for a while
until people catch on.

coming in to collect things because they can't find parking. l ther people tell me that they won't
come into Newcastle because the congestion and lack of parking causes them too much stress.

40 The CBD is definitely revitalised but transport and parking is aimed at visitors not those who need
to travel more than an hour to work daily. 11/9/2018 4:51 PM

41 The public transport has become horrible. Only once per hour am I able to get a train or bus from
Shortland in to the Newcastle interchange, the bus doesn't even go up King or Hunter Streets. No 11/9/2018 2:38 PM
one knows what's happening in Newcastle anymore and are reluctant to come in to the city.

43 Against
11/9/2018 9:48 AM
44 They're an absolute stuff up. Traffic is directed completely wrong, access is now limited, parking is
now much less & yet now more expensive, no parking for employees results in highter turnover & 11/9/20 18 9:29 AM
therefor e increased costs to our business & more. It's an absolute nightmare.

BUSINESS SURVEY - NEWCASTLE CBD PARKING

50 During construction of the light rail there were massive issues however now that things have 11/8/2018 4:31 PM
settled down things have improved. ·

51 Footpaths are fantastic. The bus stops have gone outside the front of our shop so we now have 11/8/2018 3:12 PM
parking which we haven't had for years.

52 Against my business 11/8/2018 3:01 PM

53 Disrupting business, and hinderingclients coming to office for meetings 11/8/2018 2:48 PM

54 It is difficult for couriers to get to our business as our deliveries are sometimes quite bulky. 11/8/2018 2:48 PM
Couriers are annoyed by the lack of loading zones.

55 As we are a niche market, our regular customers generally make the effort regardless of road 11/8/2018 2:16 PM
difficulties. This being said, we do rely on passing foot traffic which had been dramatically reduced
whilst the rail corridor work was ongoing. This difficulty has lessened somewhat now that Hunter St
is once again traversible.

56 It is making it extremely difficult for my staff to get to work and customer and clients struggle to find 11/8/2018 1:58 PM
parking for periodsbeyond 2 hours.

57 Public Transportpeople have lost confidencein as it is clunky and unreliable. Trains and buses 11/8/2018 1:49 PM
coming into town don't link.

58 As a Manager I have to attend regular visits with Clients throughout the Newcastle area. Certain 11/8/2018 1:37 PM
times of the day there are no parks left I am currently parking two and a half kilometres from our
Office. I have received many parking infringements. Frustratingbecause there is no way to appeal
and receive an acceptable standard of review process.

59 They are working against it. 11/8/2018 12:41 PM

60 It was difficult as clientsdid not know how to gain access to our business. Access points were 11/8/2018 12:21 PM
constantly changing.

61 Our businessis on the corner of Scott Street and Market Street. The loss of street parking on 11/8/2018 12:03PM
Scott Street has had a detrimental effect on our business as it is now difficult for clients,
particularly elderly or infirm, to find parking to access our office. It is costing us time and money to
visit clients and some clients have simply been lost to our business due to parking issues.

62 No consideration has been made for local businesses in the planning of the roads. I have to collect 11/8/2018 11:59 AM
large boxes of flowers and there is no loading zones to allow me to park and take them into the
store.
63 They had a mild impact on the business 11/8/2018 11:29 AM

64 No parking on the side of Hunter Street where our businessoperates. People are unable to stop 11/8/2018 11:23 AM
and purchase goods.

65 Against. Due to light rail and the narrowing of Scott St, my elderly clientsare unable to be dropped 11/8/2018 10:53 AM
off in front of the clinic. As there is now no parking alongScott St, clients have to park further away
and some elderly clients find it too far. And with supercars work happening now, we havelost
parking along Watt st as well. The constant changing of bus routes has impacted as well...clients
having further to walk as the stop at Customs House was moved

66 Parking is an issue for client meetings and impacts their business. Clients are frustratedand do 11/8/2018 10:51 AM
not enjoy coming into the city due to the difficulty of finding a park.

67 Clients come to the business and find it difficult to find parking. Clients with disabilities find it very 11/8/2018 10:49 AM
difficult to park as there is very small amount off accessible parking.

68 The footpaths have been recently cleared in front of Alliance Labour Solutions which has made 11/8/2018 10:15 AM
things easier for the employees here, however previous disruptionscreated much confusion for
employeesand customers. Changes to roads made it especially confusing for our customerswho
do not travel into the CBD very often. Public Transport did not effect anyone within the business
as far as I know.

69 Negative - as there is no parking for their clients. They have made complaints to council with no 11/8/2018 10:03AM
response - a lot of damage was done to the front of the building and has yet to be fixed.

70 Against the business as clients are unable to find parking 11/8/2018 9:36 AM

BUSINESS SURVEY - NEWCASTLE CBD PARKING

71 The changes makes it difficult for our clients to visit our business and they have to pay for parking. 11/8/2018 9:32 AM
Unfortunately clients are finding it difficult to find parking. Clients call and say the are running late
due to the lack of parking and then at limes get frustrated as they can't find one so they cancel
their appointment.

72 Definitely against. I used to have a disabled parking bay at the front of my building. My side of 11/8/2018 9:15 AM
Hunter Street no longer has parking. You cannot even stop to allow a disabled person to alight, or
be picked up. I act for a lot of elderly clients as a lawyer doing estate planning work.

73 Not good. 11/8/2018 12:00 AM

74 Public transport has great potential if light rail is extended so that there is mass parking at one of 11/7/2018 10:40 PM
the stops (Maybe the stadium). Until! then, hard to see it rducing congestion

75 It's harder to attract staff to work in the cbd when transport is still unreliable and parking which was 11/7/2018 9:54 PM
good at foreshore all day park now closed for Supercars for weeks.

76 Clients constantly late due to struggling to our business. Time limits make ii difficult to get a close 11/7/2018 9:08 PM
park to carry store to and from

77 Loss of one lane of traffic to light rail has created more congestion in adjacent streets. Loss of on 11/7/2018 4:48 PM
street parking on Hunter Street has diminished foot traffic and walk up business and is
discouraging my clients to travel to my business.

82 Three Bears Kitchen. Over the past 14 months it has been very tough, however now that the light 11/7/2018 12:21 PM
rail construction is complete I am hopeful that business will start to grow again.

83 The changes to public transport is not part of a broader plan, therefore its ineffective. The lack of 11/7/2018 11:25 AM
dedicated cycle paths is ridiculous

84 Makes access more difficult 11/7/2018 9:18 AM

85 No impact. 11/7/2018 8:44 AM

86 Have to use multiple modes of transport in a comparatively small city such is Newcastle is 11/7/2018 7:55 AM
inefficient and not necessary. In a place such as Sydney yes I get it, but they don't dump people at
the harbour bridge and say get on a tram to cross the bridge. The is what they are effectively
doing in Newcastle

87 PRDnationwide Newcastle & Lake Macquarie It makes it incredibly difficult for not only clients to 11/7/2018 6:30 AM
come to our office but also all of us employees. Especially when being a real estate agent, you
have to be driving around all day so you cannot park inside places like Bolton Street car park who
charge $30+ for parking in there for less than 8 hours. Parking on the street with paid parking then
costs upwards of $15+. This makes clients unable and sometimes unwilling to come to our office
and if difficult to get all our 50+ employees into the office for meetings, trainings etc.

94 It's been frustrating for staff that there is very little free parking or cheap all day parking. It's either 11/6/2018 2:49 PM

But currently our customers have a hard time finding a park to see us and have had to do loops
with us running downstairs for them to sign a document. With the potential loss of more parking, I
dont see how I cancontinue to run my business and be compeittive when I have very little to offer
my clients to actually get to see us. Its extremelyconcerning and I dont see how any major big
business would be attractedto relocatetheir business to Newcastle given the current parking
situation - which frankly is not very far sighted of our council who should be actively asking and
offering incentives for Sydney and Melbourne based big business to come to a regional centre!
98 Against. No customers come to town anymore so I have to travel to them which means I don't 11/6/2018 1:37 PM

106 Foot paths are great and the presentation of the roads look like a modern city. Public transport is 11/6/2018 11:07 AM
not working as yet so too early to tell. Public perceptionis still very strong towards staying away as
there is reduced parking and a high number of developments which make navigation difficult.

152 May help a little but public transport from Floraville is horrid to get into town. I park at least 1km 11/5/2018 8:46 AM
away from work each day for a park then ride from there.
153 I cannot see what is currently being done will benefit anyone moving forward -we need more 11/5/2018 8:43 AM
154 Changes in the CBD are closing off available parking spots, pushing cars further out of the CBD to 11/5/2018 8:42 AM
park which puts significant pressure on the limited parking available

155 Making it harder to get to work (slower)and hard to get a park. Walking further to work. 11/5/2018 8:42 AM
156 So far Cooks Hill is ok but more and more office workers are filling the back streets because they 11/5/2018 8:41 AM
seem to think they shouldn't have to pay for parking in the parking stations.
157 Bus stop relocationshave cut out valuable car parks. The change of bus routes also means more 11/5/2018 8:32 AM
people have to drive into the city so have not made public transport more attractive or accessible.
158 Public Transport is not reliable and the cost isn't effective to get people to use it 11/5/2018 8:27 AM
159 Parking is very difficult and staff are increasingly frustrated 11/5/2018 8:26 AM

160 Some changes to road efficiencies have been great, the delays implenting have been questionable 11/5/2018 8:23 AM
( (there are 24 hours in a day)
161 Terrible 11/5/2018 8:05 AM
162 Unsure. The upgrade to Hunter Street Mall is a concern. No idea what they are doing or when.. 11/5/2018 7:07 AM
Need to know. Will you take any of my outside trading away? Very worried.
163 It all mkes my day stressful and eats up extensive amount of my working day trying to find parks 11/5/2018 6:31 AM
and getting to and from my car.

164 Business ok - it's my home/street that is the problem! No visibility and drivewayfrequently parked 11/4/2018 10:51 PM

165 Against. Less accessible 11/4/2018 10:03 PM


166 AGAINST! It's been a debacle. Jesus!! 11/4/2018 9:52 PM
167 Loss of parking directly in front of our offices 11/4/2018 7:32 PM
168 Current works in Newcastle West and Honeysuckle has driven commuters to park in Wickham, 11/4/2018 7:09 PM
where my business is located.This means fewer available parks for my employees and, at least
50% of the time, zero parks availablefor my clients when visiting my premises. The proposed
Wickham Master Plan gives me zero confidence that this situation will ever improve
169 The beautification,upgrades & the new light rail service are all positive outcomesand the city is 11/3/2018 2:53 PM
starting to shine which is just fantastic. This all bodes well for the city and is exciting. But the
University Campuses should be made to build multi story car parking for both uni and visitor use
particular on the Wright Lane land...

170 Traffic works have really taken a toll on small business in cbd 11/3/2018 11:24 AM

171 Good. Just adapting. Willl Positively impact of employee, customer and feeling over time 11/3/2018 9:00 AM
172 Against- poor access with road blockagesand poor parking. Very difficult for patients and staff. 11/2/2018 7:41 PM
173 It was terrible during light rail construction. It is a little better, but clients reportnot wanting to come 11/2/2018 7:31 PM
to the city due to the parking issues and overall disruption.
174 Too early to tell, but loss of parkingmay change demographic and may require businesses to alter 11/2/2018 6:09 PM
concept to cater to needs of changing demographic.

175 These changes are disruptive and inconvenient for both our team and clients. Clients are reluctant 11/2/2018 5:35 PM
to come into the cbd and our employeesare finding it increasingly more difficult to find parking
during business hours. Public transportinto the CBD from out lying suburbs is infrequent if at all.
The travel timeson public transportare unrealistic for daily commuters as well with some trips
taking in excess of 1.5 hours on a bus as opposed to 15 mins in a private car.
176 Disorganised. Things change daily. Hopelessly organised. 11/2/2018 5:33 PM

BUSINESS SURVEY - NEWCASTLE CBD PARKING

177 Almost a 50% loss to the business this year. We are a boutique co-workingfacility in operation for 11/2/2018 5:31 PM
4 years. We have always operated at capacity, until this year. In the past 12 months we have lost
5 out of our 12 tenants. This loss is directly due to those tenants not being able to easily come into
the city. And, for the same reason, we have not been able to replace them with new tenants. Since
Hunter St re-opened, we have seen a few enquiries trickle in. We hope things are on the mend.
But, for those who have enquired recently, they are still asking where they can park - and we have
to be honest, the choices are slim. - in short, it has been a tough year. If this business was our
sole income, we would have been seriously concerned for it's future.
178 I'm not seeing a lot of change that is open in newcastle city, I am avoiding going into the city 11/2/20185:30 PM
unless necessary and then it's in and out.
179 Immediatevicinity Parking is a requirementof my business for both employeesand customers. 11/2/20185:09 PM

180 The order of works was wrong - public transport(train)and carparking was REMOVED first 11/2/2018 5:01 PM
BEFORE substitutes (better bus service, and light rail) were put in. There has been a gap of
several years during which driving private cars to the CBD has been problematic, but also public
transport has not been improved (in fact arguably worsened if you listen to the public feedback and
frustration about privatisation of the Newcastle bus service). I understand not everybody will be
able to drive to, and park in, the CBD, but if that's the case then the government has a
responsibility to provide effective public transport that's actually desirable, convenient, and easy to
use. (
181 Little impact as we have very few clients visit. 11/2/2018 4:40 PM

182 A little to early as roads and foot paths have not long opened the worst problem is the car race we 11/2/2018 4:02 PM
have to close for 3 days
183 Against, parking needs to be drastically addressed 11/2/2018 3:17 PM

184 At least the barriers are down and the new side walks wide and level but this is at the expense of 11/2/20182:10 PM
the parking which is critical
185 This has no affect on our business however we welcome the upgrades works. 11/2/2018 2:08 PM

186 Limiting numbers of people walking past and customers sometimes give up if they cant park 11/2/2018 2:06 PM
nearby
187 Very bad even with the race there is no parking in the EAST END. 11/2/2018 1:48 PM

188 We are fortunate to have our own car park, however we are constantly battling people who illegally 11/2/2018 12:50 PM
park on our site. Workers & people who attend other CBD businesses are always parking in
spaces that are for my own customers. We are having to install an expensive boom gate to stop
this from contimuing. We have also had a bus stop placed outside our front door. This has no
council garbage bin & as result leaves our business to have to clean up mess on the streets.

189 Directly impactedin Hunter Street between Darby and Crown Sis. No parking out the front of our 11/2/2018 11:06 AM
office anymore makes ii difficult and less appealing for customers to access our business

190 They are working for our business, people are more mobile and ii is now easier for them to get 11/2/2018 10:19 AM
around.
191 Supercars and lightrail construction has definitely hindered access to roads and footpaths. 11/2/2018 9:48 AM
192 Public transport is insufficient. Eventually there will be nowhere to park and there will be no 11/2/2018 9:32 AM
adequate transport to get me to work as an alternative.
193 not affecting business but staff 11/2/2018 7:52 AM

194 The fact that over the past 12 months these elements have 'changed' on a daily basis has been 11/2/2018 2:31 AM
detrimental to my business. One day a car park is 8hr the next it's 2hr with no warning. The loss of
car parks & closure of roads has resulted in guests not being able to access our area resulting in
booking cancelations. The moving of pedestrian crossings has been confusing to the public, they
now cross at both old & new crossings making the whole road a hazardous place. The removal of
a LOT of car parks has made parking difficult for both customers & staff. The constant change of
bus routes has made accessing the area difficult also. One day a bus goes west on wharf road,
the next it does not.
195 totally against!!! 11/1/2018 10:57 PM

196 It is hard to get over to Honeysuckle sometimes and around when there is constant changes made 11/1/20 18 6:44 PM

211 I don't own the business I just he.ar story after story stating how horrible they have been treated. as 11/1/2018 2:28 PM
well as how hard and expensive parking is.
212 The situation in Newcastle is appalling. Road closures every day, traffic stuck in every direction, 11/1/2018 2:26 PM
congestion becoming a big issue, no where to park and no public transport to get around.
213 Not helpful as traffic is hectic 11/1/2018 2:25 PM

215 Waiting on the light rail to begin.before we can see the full affects of public transport. Roads are 11/1/2018 1:25 PM
good due to the re-development for last years supercars.

216 There is a lot more traffic along honeysuckle dr, withless and less parking, which impacts safety 11/1/2018 1:21 PM
of staff, so the changes are not very positive other than they look pretty
217 Patients are running late as they find it difficult getting a park and traffic delays. If they are too late 11/1/2018 1:17 PM
we need to reschedule so lose business. Everyone from Hunter St is using the car park at
Honeysucklebecause there is more access from Hunter St now and they have lost parks.
218 My husbandand I have 2 businesses and we sub-let each - I actually moved my businesstotally 11/1/2018 1:17 PM
on-line because the parking in the CBD is ridiculous. Hate how much parking is disappearing.

219 They may prevent people from coming in to register with our company. 11/1/2018 11:51 AM
220 Expanded footpaths have taken road side car parks away. Road being opened have improved 11/1/2018 11:49 AM
traffic congestion on Honeysuckle Drive. No change with public transport until the light rail starts.
221 Against our business. We were close to Newcastle rail station, right on a bus stop both coming 11/1/2018 11:42 AM
into town and going out and we had parking out the front
222 Good feel, but limited options to move from one part of the CBD to another. 11/1/2018 11:38 AM
223 Think its hard for clients to get in to see us 11/1/2018 11:16 AM
224 The lack of parking in the CBD takes away the options for staff to choose how they travel to work. 11/1/2018 11:08 AM
This makes it difficult for people with children if they need pick their kids up or need to leave
urgently to have their car available. Some staff have no option to use public transport based on
locationand need to arrive hours before their start time to ensure they secure a park. I also have
staff who work until 8pm so when they have to park a distance from work or catch public transport,
is a safety concern in the winter months.
225 Footpaths currently narrower on Honeysuckle. Difficult to navigate with bikes, scooters, roller 11/1/20 18 10:53 AM

good for customers though...
274 Wider footpaths are appreciated for walking down Hunter St but roads need a lot more parking to 10/30/2018 2:42 PM

Mo re parking along waterfront and near old railway station. 11/22/2018 5:22 PM

2 Remove all metered parking in the residential streets. Providing more parking will attract people to 11/20/2018 4:39 PM
coming into town instead of avoiding it. Or if you are going to have businesses in the city then
create working stations for the businesses.

3 Cheaper car parking. More designated workers car parking. Apply for a working permit, like a 11/19/2018 6:45 AM
disability car park permit, to allow cheaper or discount parking in private car parks.

4 At very least there is a crying need for expansion of parking stations rather than closure...both
adjacent to the Wickham terminus & at the East end.The proposed latest Uon building (with no
provision for parking) will be the final straw.

5 I'd like a business and employee parking maybe allocated for us business workers. As I currently 11/18/2018 9:23 PM
have to pay $15 a day for parking and I'm not always guaranteed parking unless I get to work
early. Or I have to park kilometres away from work and walk.

6 An express bus service along the Hunter freeway from Cessnock that runs down the link Rd and 11/18/2018 7:00 PM
up Newcastle Rd into the CBD. There are no bus services that accomoda te Cameron park
Residents that are direct to the CBD and take less than a 1.5-2hour journey. We simply must drive
which is silly considering how close we are to the CBD. The park and ride bus from the stadium
finishes at 6:30pm which leaves a lot of workers who finish outside of these hours with no options
but to drive. And express service that starts at no later than 6am and finishes later than 6:30
would be a simple effective and lucrative solution.

7 Educate about car pooling Improve the bus network... way too infre quent Open more parking to 11/18/2018 6:57 PM
replace those now unavailable

8 We need some drastic changes to traffic regulation and Parking in the area of the new Harris 11/18/2018 6:17 PM

9 Either multi story or underground parking needs to be built near the area for people to obtain easy 11/18/20 18 12:25 PM
parking. Maybe free multi story parking at eye MarketTown Carpark. There is little (and future nil

11 There is literally no acces to parking ! ! Park and ride would be a great option - the current one at 11/18/20 18 10:22 AM
the stadium is already full.

12 Upgrade ferry services - more stops, regular runs between inner city suburbs. Build high rise 11/18/2018 10:10 AM
parking. Stop allowing organisations e.g. Uni, to add new buildings without adequate provision for
parking.

13 yes, Angle parking, provide more street parking, by allowing what remains of rail corridor for angle 11/18/20 18 9:56 AM

17 I have purchased a motor scooterspecifically because I was so over trying to get a car parking 11/17/20185:30 PM
space in the CBD. I would on average enter the CBD twice a day. Perhaps the CBD can become
'scooter friendly'. Perhaps more motor cycle only parking ? I currently park wherever the scooter

20 Build some car parks! Simples!You have to ask? Grrr. 11/17/2018 12:06 PM

21 Germany has significant car parking undergroundwith direct access to city/town centres. This has 11/17/2018 11:05 AM
been planned knowing how many people would be using the centre not creating numerous units,
some with no car space and therefore clogging the town with cars and no facilities for visitors. A
well managed park and ride facility is also essential.

22 Look at areas where parking can be created to assist customers and businesses 11/17/2018 10:30 AM

23 I think another park and ride station on industrial highway opposite Wests would be very helpful for 11/17/2018 9:51 AM
people coming in from that side

24 Free inner city buses like Perth 11/17/2018 9:42 AM

25 Build parking stations 11/17/2018 8:16 AM

26 A coordinated approach to traffic managements and parking had been lacking. With light rail 11/14/20184:37 PM
upgrades, supercars infrastructure and road changes, development of Honeysuckleand
construction everywhere there are days when one can be diverted or detoured 5 times. Then
there is also nowheerto park. BUT there has been no shortage of merciless parking officers to
book you if you are 5 mins late after the long walk back to your car where you were lucky enough
to find a space!

27 Businesses should be able to validate parking, this would encouragepeople, why pay for parking 11/13/2018 9:48 PM
in town to shop or eat when there are other places to go with no parking fees.

28 Genuinely encouragecycling by creating safe and accessible bike lanes and more bike racks - this 11/12/2018 5:21 PM
will reduce the number of cars in the CBD, and positively impact the city in so many ways. As
someone who prefer to cycle rather than drive I find it absolutely devastating for the city that cycle
tracks were not part of the design of the light rail. It is nowmore difficult and more dangerous to
cycle in the CBD and the light rail isn't even in action yet. Free parking for 2 hours in all council car
parks is you spend over a certain amount of money at an in der city business. Businessescan give
the validatedparking card to customers by request.

29 New developmentsneed to add parking, not reduce it. Like a carbon offset style scheme. If the 11/12/2018 2:22 PM
development is increasing congestion a strategy for adequate parking should be required.

30 Open public car parks for longer hours. Provision for more spaces. Recognise transition issues eg 11/12/2018 11:49 AM
before light rail commences, need to be more flexible

31 Speci fic multi level car parking is required on the west end of Newcastle. 11/12/2018 11:33 AM

32 More bus routes that don't go all over the place, that are more direct. As I said above it will take a 11/12/2018 6:08 AM
while for people to catch on but once they do it will make life easier. Also stop taking away the
parking facilities.

BUSINESS SURVEY - NEWCASTLE CBD PARKJNG

41 More parking in general is required in some way. With so many car parks lost it's become so 11/9/2018 2:38 PM
difficult for employees and clients to even get in to the city. Instead of taking out the massive car
parks and parking stations, more NEED to be put back in, even if it's down at the interchange
where people will (eventually) then be able to access the tram. Even taking the tram line further
out to Hamilton/Broadmeadow/Merewether etc would be smart so people can park in outer
suburbs and catch the public transport in. The Park and Ride service should also continue, it's
incredible and a lifesaver.

42 Get rid of meter parking 11/9/201810:10AM

43 Bring more cheaper (or free!) full day parking available for employees. Maybe have it that they 11/9/2018 9:29 AM
have to prove they are an employee and stay there a minimum number of hours per day, to qualify
for that free parking, - but how on earth otherwise do we keep employees in our city businesses.
No one wants to work here because it is such a disaster. The Park and ride system from the
stadium is useless when you are coming from somewhere like Belmont or Redhead, Swansea,
Caves beach, or even out Cessnock way etc ...by the time you get to the stadium and park your
car and then have to wait for a bus, it can turn your 30-40 min trip, or 1 hour trip into 1.5 hours?
Who's got time to leave home at 7am to start at 8:30? And if employees can't park in town, they
won't work in town, then how do we keep our businesses running? Where is someone from
Belmont supposed to park their car to catch the light rail 2 stops? Nowhere?? Rule Number 1; look
after the business people and their employees to keep the businesses open & operating. If the
businesses are open and there is street parking for the customers they will come & the city will (
thrive again.

44 Yes. Create a massive parking station at Broadmeadow for 3000 spaces and offer 2 minute 11/9/2018 7:57 AM
shuttles into the cbd. I live in merewether and it takes 90 minutes to catch the bus into work. It
takes me 7 minutes to drive and walk 5-10 minutes to my workplace. I'm also a full time uni student
and use the cbd campus .

45 Get rid of the arrogance. Not everyone is in a position to catch public transport ... And it sucks 11/9/2018 6:54 AM
anyway

46 Stop building apartments, university buildings and other buildings with no parking! Provide free car 11/8/2018 10:55 PM

Newcastle.

49 Build more parking stations. In Japan they use undergroundparking slackers and you punch your 11/8/2018 4:31 PM
key in to access your car.

50 The railway is open for traffic to drive on from the station to Scott Street and is only one lane. Why 11/8/2018 3:12 PM
can't the light rail tracks be opened and used by cars.

51 Has to be a plan for more parking stations and facilities as Newcastle people will not visit unless 11/8/2018 3:01 PM
they are able to drive to the city.

52 More bike lanes in the city 11/8/2018 2:48 PM

53 Personally speaking, information on secure parking available during non-standard business hours 11/8/20 18 2:16 PM
would be extremely helpful. Since our business is a retail establishment that is open from morning
to post-8pm some nights, it is hard to find somewhere to park securely early in the daythat remains
open until that time.

54 Developments should be made to include allocations for parking. The notion that university 11/8/20 18 1:58 PM
students dont have cars in ridiculous. Newcastle City Council needs to invest in parking stations to
support Newcastl e Businesses.

( 68 Build car parking stations with reasonable prices as everyone that comes and visits our business 11/8/2018 9:32 AM

69 I think it is too far gone. It has been stuffed by the muppets from Sydney who think their ideas for 11/8/2018 9:15 AM
Sydney CBD are what will work in Newcaslte. I think the Light Rail will actually kill that part of
Hunter Street that it traverses, and that patronage on the service will be low. A white elephant!

70 Just do something about parking. Maybe council should have planned parking better before 11/8/2018 12:00 AM
making passing so many developments.

71 Extend light rail to a free parking area 11/7/2018 10:40 PM

72 We used to use Bolton St but were forced out when Keolis Downer took lots of space to 11/7/2018 9:54 PM
accommodate residents while Hunter/Scott Sis were closed. Need more all day parking for
business owners and workers.

73 I personally would use a parking tower althoughI'm sure it's not economicallyviable to pop one in, 11/7/2018 9:08 PM
I would love to just catch a train in but I'm always picking stuff up that is needed and the trains
don't run at close enough intervals. A single parking permit per business to park in a 2 hour spot
all day within close proximity to the business would be nice.

74 Change all parking zones marked 1,2 and 4 hours to 8 hours and encourage people to travel via 11/7/2018 5:37 PM
light rail to do business in the CBD. Allotting parking permits for business owners and residents
should be a priority. To reduce the impacton profits for council revenue raising through parking, a
minimal increase in parking fees could be used on the 8 hour metered parking spaces. Ultimately,
free parking in the CBD would be preferabe l.

75 Old heavy rail corridor not presently being used for light rail (Worth Place area) should be 11/7/2018 4:48 PM
converted to parking bays for the short to medium term until this area is further developed.

86 Why are big government businesseslocated in inner city Newcastle when they do not have 11/6/2018 10:35 PM
interaction with the public? Why aren't these honeysuckle departments moved out to the suburbs?
This would free up some of the traffic. You moved Newcastle courthousefrom being right near a
multilevel car park to a place that has no long term parking for people that have jury duty etc. You
go to Sydney or whereverand there are lots of multi level car parking around. Newcastle you are
demolishing them. All the new residential properties and rental has 1 car space or none!!!! I have
been looking with my daughter to have her move from around Darbystreet where she doesnot
have residential parking spaces and there are so many new units with NO parking. Where are
these people supposedto park there car? Newcaslte is not a big enough city that you don't need a
car to live (like New York). People need to be able to park their car. As she cannot afford to pay for
rent alone there will then be more than just her renting and will be needing more car spaces !!!
Newcastle and Australia has land - use it. An example also is the expansion of Lindguard Hospital.
Expanding in size with only a few extra car spaces added. You may say well there is more than
what they have now, BUT you have to take into consideraiton they have already closed one
doctors car parking to the previousexpansion and the doctors now park in the only car park
available so NO there is no real extra car parks. Stop making the innercity so congested with such
large building that do not have adequate parking. Every residential should have 2 car parks. Plus
extra for family and friends to park. You will be isolatingpeople who live in there as they will not
have people come to visit because of the parking. Plus the restaurants must be missing out on so (
much business. Why go there when you can go to other restaurantsoutside inner city and find a
park. Such a shame that I will not be utilizing the foreshore.

94 No. Just get people on to public transport.Works elsewhere! 11/6/2018 12:05 PM

number of additional car parks that could be managed by a commercial parkingoperator similar to

117 It is imperativeto have a public Carpark available in close proximity to the NewcastleInterchange 11/5/2018 6:49 PM

118 I thought the soon to be redundant council chambers and adjoining building promoted an excellent 11/5/2018 6:48 PM
space to erect a large, low cost, and tasteful parking station, central to UON, and equidistant to
Newcastle West and Newcastle East precincts. This will hopefully be complimented by another
large parking station adjacent to the transport interchange. Thought should also be given to
turning the Wallsend CBD precinct into a satellite city with high rise office space development.

119 More parking and cheaper parking. More carpooling options, better public transport 11/5/2018 4:18 PM

120 Paid parking is far too expensive. Why would people come into the city to pay so much for parking 11/5/2018 3:37 PM
to shop when they can go to kotara or Charlestown. People cannot be bothered coming in, unable
to park anywhere near where they want to go.

121 Public transport needs to be cheaper and quicker than using a car for people to use it as it is in 11/5/2018 2:57 PM
most capital cities. Better public transport options from all those suburbs not serviced by a train. It
would take me 3 buses and one hour to catch public transport to work so i drive then walk 15

to remove the 'twice parked' parking infringement so that if staff do move their car during the day

127 Less negativity 11/5/2018 11:14 AM

128 1. Any new infrastructure must dig to build adequate multi level carparks for their employees 1st. 2. 11/5/2018 11:04 AM
Park & ride options need to be more accessible for residents & workers who don't live near the
stadium. 3. Car parking needs to be improved near train stations so people can get on the trains in
order to get on the light rail. 4. A cycle safe city needs to be addressed- limited bike access on
footpaths & lack of bike lanes ie memorial drive, darby st, king st needs to change so we steer
away from cars. Perhaps those that do commute via bike or.even car pool receive a subsidy for
taking the effort. Even a potential grant to inner city workers to purchase E-bikes as in europe has
really taken off so people can buy a E bike without the cost currently involved. 5. Potential
government sponsored rickshaw operations as a tourist exploration around newcastle or even to .
be used as a work commute option from newcastle's west to east.

129 Free public transport has been the best option so far in cities where parking spaces are a luxury 11/5/2018 10:08 AM
and the city wants to discourage cars in the CBD.

(
131 As an employee who regularly parks at the southern end of Darby Street and either walks to Cnr 11/5/2018 9:58 AM
Darby and Tyrrell Streets I am concerned by the reports that what little free all day parking is
available is going to be reduced, an extension of the free bus from Bull St to Parkway avenue
would certainly help as there are a lot of other people doing the same as me. Parkway avenue has
a wide centre nature strip which could easily be reduced in size and a large amount of free all day
parking (similar to the angled parking in Dawson St) could be provided to then meet up with the 14
bus which travels along Darby Street.

132 I think more consideration could have been given to staggering the large number of developments 11/5/2018 9:48 AM
being undertaken so that the effects on parking and businesses may have been reduced.
133 There is a lot of 2 hour parking around the backstreets near Darby Street. I strongly believe this 11/5/2018 9:45 AM
should all be amended to all day parking.
134 Adding more parking lots closer by, walking distance to King and Hunter Streets. Reducing on 11/5/2018 9:39 AM
street parking costs, or allowing longer parking times on the street.

was getting built so a little better. We need the half hour free parking out front as our customers
can't often get a car space so don't bother.. Need some more than 15min free.. $6 or more for 2
hours is silly.. Hopefully the light rail will bring more people and stop others bringing their cars..

development)will further impact. Clients no longer care about CBD locations in our industry - the

terms of electronic access and then physical access to offices) is the most important factor.

173 While I understand the concept of forcing people to use public transport by eliminating access to 11/2/2018 2:08 PM
all day parking however this creates other issues when people need to park in the city or overstay
their paid parking due to a meeting going over time. Payment for lime stayed rather than prepaid
parking would overcome this.

174 More free parking on on fringes of CBD, free transport to and within the CBD with high frequency 11/2/2018 2:06 PM

should be free to ride into the city. Light rail should also be included free of charge with any train
ticket that way people entering the city from Maitland and afar will not be hit twice for commuting.

177 Less 8 hour parking around the city centre/fringe streets so that more visitors can access parking, 11/2/201811:06 AM
rather than it being taken up by workers.

178 More frequent bus services from within 5km radius. Better publicity for these routes. 11/2/2018 10:19 AM

179 The light rail should extend along Glebe Road to Broadmeadow and out to the Uni/Hospital/shops. 1112/2018 9:48 AM
There's no point driving to Wickham where there's no parks there and getting on it to go into the
CBD. Car parks similar to Westfield and Charlestown would also be ideal. One big one down East
End and one down West End - these can be for people who work freeing up the beach and main
streets for customers and visitors. There are car parks but you have to be in and out before a
certain time to get a cheap rate (which isn't that cheap). Also if there's an emergency, such as kids (
being sick, you have to pay a large sum because you're leaving early. Spending over $2600 a
year on parking to go to work is excessive and pushing people to work from home.

180 How about more carparks and more buses. 11/2/2018 9:32 AM

206 There are a number of non-paying limited time areas that use to be all day parking (fort dr for 11/1/2018 1:25 PM
example). Due to the lack of parking for CBD workers, these areas need to be opened up to free
all day parking.

207 I think that a parking station needs to be built to cover business in the area, the parking at the end 11/1/2018 1:21 PM
of Honeysuckle Dr (Throsby 8P) is always full once this is taken away people who travel to work
from out of the local area will struggle to get to work and have a reasonable work life balance.

209 Park and ride to continue from Hunter Stadium or some other area. 11/1/2018 1:17 PM
210 I don't have a creative idea, butthere needs to be more affordable parking. Parking is ridiculously 11/1/2018 11:51 AM
expensive at the moment. There needs to be more parking and it needs to be cheaper/free.
.211 Underground car parks and lots of them, make use of all the existingundergroundtunnels. Ideally 11/1/2018 11:49 AM
a subway would have been a better use of funds/spacethan a light rail. The underground car
parks could have parking permits for those who work in the city - something similar to the car
parking situation at the University of Newcastle Callaghan campus - where you pay a discounted
rate for a years worth or parking.

212 nothing can be done for our business as far as parkingis concerned maybe when the light rail 11/1/2018 11:42 AM
starts it may improve as there is a light rail station close by.
213 Things will help with the light rail, however more free shuttles down Honeysuckle Dr and more 11/1/2018 11:38 AM
access to longer-termparking (than the limited 2 hours) in areas such as Wright Lane.

215 I don't think innovative or creative ideas are really necessary. A back to basics approach by looking 11/1/2018 11:08 AM
at the publc i transport system in Newcastle would be a good start. The bus services in Newcastle
are appalling for the size of the city and doesn't operate functionally for people to use. Express
services for suburbs surrounding suburbs (Merewether, Adamstown, Hamilton, etc.) to encourage
people closeto the CBD to utilise these services to free up parking for others. Alternatively, more
express services to train stations. This is pretty standardfor a city the size of Newcastle, however,
it seems to be lacking here for some reason. There does need to be parkingoptions though as
there needs to be options for everyone.

221 I would like to see a car park for businesses where employees can reserve car parks at reduced 11/1/2018 9:06 AM

motor vehicle traffic and usage in CBD areas. We have plenty of space in the CBD which can be
used to subsequent parking. The implementation of more parking buildings is a simple one, should (
it be council owned and operated offers significant revenue, or privatised • regardless provides

229 we need multi story car parks or free 1 hour parking in the st 10/31/2018 5:03 PM

230 If you want people to use the Light rail there needs to be large scale cheap parking at a major 10/31/2018 4:42 PM
interchange so they can leave the car there and catch the train. There also needs to be large size
car stacker car pars to allow people that work out side of normal times to allow them to park there.

231 Build a new council car park. Incorporate a new entertainment zone or replace the exiting Tower 10/31/2018 4:36 PM
Cinemas with below and above ground car parking (at a reasonable rate and with reduced rates
for out of peak periods and days and/or validated parking with minimum CBD retail business
purchases}. Access via either King Street and Crown Streets using traffic lights and exit along
Church lane above and parallel to King Street with egress through Darby Street intersection.
Undergroundparking would extend deep under Church Streets. Centrally located for law courts,
civic park, City Hall, Hunter Street CBD etc. Tower could relocate with plenty of parking to the
corner of Auckland and King incorporating unused University land and down to the Godfrey's
building eyesore. Uni could use some screens for educational purposes. Or Tower could relocate
to corner of King/Church Lane and Darby Streets linking with open air cinema events/festivals in
Civic Park and the new facility. More loading zones 7 am to 12 am converting to disabled parking
zones all hours other than that. Use of smaller transit park and ride buses similar to those used in
Tauranga NZ with luggage/freighttrailers so small business people can take small amounts of
stock with them to and from work without having to use their car. Make four major park locations
including ISC, Lake Macquaries new Basketball zone at Hillsborough, Steel River, Azzuri at
Highfields etc. Drop off zones could be painted existing car parks within the CBD that are clear
away during the park and ride times but reverting to normal parking at other times.

232 We need proper parking spaces available in the CBD to cater for the increasing population in the 10/31/2018 4:30 PM
area. I myself require a car for work so need to drive into the CBD.

233 There needs to be more parking lots in the CBD like there now is on the foreshore (would be even 10/31/2018 4:30 PM
better if it wasn't paid parking}. It is great that there is the park and ride option however this isn't
practical for everyone, as it's only close to home for some people travelling in to the CBD, and it is
also time costly as there is added travel time to use it.

2 Parking is terrible. Train/Light would be fine if there was adequate parking at other local train 11/21/2018 11:06 AM
stations but there isn't. A bus from Fletcher to CBD requires 2 hours and 2 connections so out of
the question. There is no reasonable levels of parking at any nearby stations either. So car is
really my only option to work. Park and ride seems too infrequent. It's an absolute mess.

3 If I didn't like my job I wouldn't be working in the city. Many people that work in town have school 11/20/2018 4:39 PM
aged children so need their private car to drop off kids at school before work and pick up in the
arvo. Having to park so far away from work creates unneeded stress with trying to get to work on
time and get to kids school on time in the arvo and not be late. The parking situation is only going
to get worse

13 Too many constructions happening without infrastructure to support. It is a denial of our rights. 11/18/2018 9:28 AM
Newcastle is not headed in the right direction if you want to attract shoppers and sightseeing! It is
not just alarmingto see what is happening in the CBD, but it is creating anxiety in workers who
can't find a park just to get to their daily commitment to make a living. I personally see it everyday.
Other than that...there is no other option than to pay excessive fees to park close to work. It's time
to think about the 'workers' who create a living for the retail outlets rather than treat them with
disrespect and disregard. Clean up your act and stop over populating the CBD.

14 As above! Thanks for the opportunity to express my concerns. Good luck! 11/18/20 18 8:10 AM

15 Newcastle has been built on a peninsula, one way in and one way out, the west end of town never 11/17/2018 7:30 PM
took off after many efforts, and as for Darby & Union streets they are only trunk roads to
Merewether and beyond. As for Honeysuckle, well now with all the High rise buildings it would be
impossible to see the Harbour even if you wanted to drive into town.to see the sights. It's a joke.

16 As above, maybe Newcastle Council can make attempts to make the CBD more scooter friendly to 11/17/201 8 5:30 PM
encourage some people out of cars and onto scooters, which require far smaller space for parking.
Especially with all the apartments going in around the CBD, these new residents might be
encouraged to use scooters not cars around the city.

17 the local council is not listening to people,hell bent on achieving personal goals.hence not 11/17/2018 3:00 PM
addressing the issues concerning operating in a very small regional city.

18 It is almost impossible to find parking in the evening. This means that restaurants and the cinema 11/17/201811:05 AM
will struggle. I believe that the cinema is closing!

19 Do it very quickly as a lot more businesses will either close or move out of the City and surrounds 11/17/2018 10:30 AM

20 Hard to determine how to improve things now light rail is not on rail corridor as originally proposed 11/17/2018 9:42 AM

21 I love the rejeventaionof Newcastlebut it has been terrible being a business owner and a resident 11/14/2018 4:37 PM
living through it AND still paying rates etc with zero compensation or compassion.

22 Please address the issue of safe cycling in Newcastle ASAP. Claims have been made that we 11/12/2018 5:21 PM
have reduced parking as we are becoming a city now and people need to adjust to accessing the
city without their cars. If this is true - then where are the cyxleways? Any modern, growing city
should be providing that.

23 The key mistake made by town planners is that taking away parking and investing in trams will 11/12/2018 2:22 PM
result in the public will abandoning cars. Public transportis simply not an option for many young
families. I thoroughly support the use of public transportbut ii cannot support a daily routine of
school and day-care drop off followed by a commute to the CBD. Outside of commuting,
Inadequate parking is a disincentive to visit the CBD. Families will opt for the major shopping
(
centres with free and convenient parking. I think this is a trend that contradicts the revitalisation of
the CBD.

24 there is minimal/very poor public transport in Newcastle so more parking in the city is essential 11/11/2018 9:11 PM

25 There needs to be free parking or business will close 11/11/2018 7:11 PM

26 I don! have a inovative or creative idea for parking in the CBD. I only know how difficult it is for 11/11/2018 5:47 PM
elderly people to access their GPs Dentists Accountants etc . Walking distances from parking
stations bus stops are too far.

27 People do not come to Newcastle anymore due to the lack of parking. New places should have to 11/11/2018 2:18 AM
provide parking for all who use it. Public transport does not suit everyone. I do not have 2 spare
hours to travel each way on public transport. We have closed our business due to this struggle and
a huge loss to us.

28 make the 15 min free parking 30 mins 11/10/2018 4:26 PM

29 People who live in the greater Newcastle area are very car dependant because of the spread out 11/10/2018 7:56 AM
nature of the suburbs and the lack of public transport. The success of the large shopping malls in
the area is mostly due to car parking facilities provided. It makes shopping more convenient and
accessible. The lack of car parking is a real problem for the growth of businesses in the Newcastle
cbd.

30 Reduce the cost of car parking in Newcastle, it's ridiculous. 11/9/2018 2:38 PM

11/9/2018 10:10 AM
\
31 I don't particularly like the Newcastle CBD ii doesn't attract me. You're fearing a parking ticket and
you may not get a park and if you do the costs are to high to park so you try to get in and out as
quickly as you can.

32 Aside from the whole light rail disaster which is an absolute waste of money, I've never seen the 11/9/2018 9:29 AM
West End of Newcastleso stuffed up, in a mess and dysfunctional. I've worked in Newcastle on
an off for 30 years and it used to be great. Now it's an absolute disaster. They had a perfectly
good rail system and even if you didn't want to keep the existing rail system, there is no reason
why they couldn't have laid the new light rail tracks over the top of the existing rail line and lefl
Hunter st perfectly functionalas it was.

33 Don't introduce parking fees for streets within 10 blocks of the cbd. Many of us work 3 hour shifts 11/9/2018 7:57 AM
at $15 -20 per hour. We need affordable parking as students. We can't afford parking at $5 per
hour.

34 Why has parking been taken away from out the front of the cerebral palsy disorder clinic on Hunter 11/9/2018 6:54 AM
Street. Ludicrous at best.

35 I moved out of the CBD due to over development and difficulty parking. It went from a great place 11/8/2018 10:55 PM
to live to being impossible. I'll never go back. I located my business elsewhere also.

36 Make parking more affordable. Don't get rid of the free bus instead of a paid team. Have both, tram 11/8/2018 9:19 PM

BUSINESS SURVEY - NEWCASTLE CBD PARKING

37 Clients complain about access to the building and lack of parking on a daily basis. 11/8/2018 4:31 PM
38 Should have allowed more parking for business owners. Disability parking is tough in Newcastle 11/8/2018 3:12 PM
now.

39 I have had to do a lot of home visits as people are unable to get into town and access the office 11/8/2018 3:01 PM
due to the construction of the light rail. Clients are not interestedin coming into town as it is to hard
to get a park and because there have been so many changes have lost confidence.

40 Lots of 2 hour parking available however no short termparking for customers that are picking up 11/8/2018 2:48 PM
goods.

41 Cooks Hill is becoming increasingly dangerous for residents and children as people either cannot 11/8/2018 1:58 PM
find a park or do not want to pay for parking so they park in Cooks Hill. They drive erratically to get
car parks as is becoming very difficult to even park in Cooks Hill.
42 Lot of people are saying they won't come into the CBD because they can't get a park. They don't 11/8/2018 1:49 PM
trust the public health system.
43 If I have 8 customers a day at least 5 of them say they would never come back to town because of 11/8/2018 12:41 PM
the lack of parking. No one is going to catch a tram in and collect a wedding dress or a suit and
take it home on a tram or a train. . Imagine the uproar if 3000 parks were taken away from
Charlestown Square or Westfield. It is unfair on CBD businesses and it has not been planned out.
( It is impossible for me to leave my car at broadmeadowand catch a train to work as around the
station is two hour parking - so it is impossible to leaveyour car there and head into work for the
day.

44 No parking in the city for clients or employees. 11/8/2018 12:21 PM

45 Customers that have got to come in and collect flowers are finding ii difficult to find parks and are 11/8/2018 11:59 AM
complaining.No one in Newcastle will catch public transport and lug purchases of bouquets back
to their car via public transport. Insufficient parking in the CBD.

46 They have 2 x 5 minute parking zones and one of them was taken away due to construction. They 11/8/2018 11:29 AM
have just received the second one back however guests are still complaining about lack of
parking.

47 Constructionof the light rail had a massive effect on the profits of the business as no one could 11/8/2018 11:23 AM
stop to purchase goods.

48 A lot of parking is taken up with the developmentsand builders which makes it even harder for 11/8/2018 10:51 AM
clients to park.

49 More consideration needs to be given to people with disabilities in relation to parking. 11/8/2018 10:49 AM

50 Putting the tram line in the same spot it was 90 years ago. More cars on the road and the tram line 11/8/2018 10:03 AM
which will cause congestion. 90 years ago this caused congestion and know the same thing will
happen.Their customersare having to park in Honeysuckle as there Is no other option for them.
They want to take away parking in the city howeverthe public transport system is clunky and
needs to be improved to support the people that have no choice but to come into Newcastle.
51 No feedback 11/8/2018 9:36 AM

52 Newcastle is becoming inaccessible for people to visit which taking a toll on businesses. Peoples 11/8/2018 9:32 AM
enjoyment in general of the city is at a low as they can't find parking and are hesitant to visit.

53 What's the point. We have always been asked for feedback by the muppet brigade, and you give it 11/8/2018 9:15 AM
in good faith, but they do not listen or care about feedback as they have their own ideas anyway,
and it is just patronising and window dresssing to say that there was community consultation.

54 Yes! I live in hamiltonsth and our streets are now the carparks for the CBD. What are you going to 11/8/2018 12:00 AM
doto change it as it has become a nightmare!!!!

55 Public transport is not always suitable especially if you hav children in child care or school and 11/7/2018 9:54 PM
have to manage their transport as well as your own. We need all day parking spaces in the cbd. I
have no problem paying just need spaces .

BUSINESS SURVEY - NEWCASTLE CBD PARKING

56 The city area scares a lot of people and all the civil works has pushed many people to the big 11/7/2018 9:08 PM
shopping complexes like green hills. Maybe a free activity to draw people in for example I recently
had a trip to Singapore we did an activity called "TrickEye" Singapore, now this is an augmented
reality experience that could be easily adapted to Newcastle CBD. The participants would
download an app and they would go on a little safari around the CBD. The app enables the user to
stand in a pre designated spot and point their device phone or tablet at a mural or sculpture and
the app then recognises the background and adds an augmented reality animation that you can
film or pose with, for example the fish trap sculptures down at honeysuckle you would aim your
device at and you would see maybe great white sharks circling the cages and the app has access
to your camera so you can film your kids or partner in the shot goofing around a bit like Pokemon
go but more fun. A few different ways you could use this to get people to explore places they
normally would not have. We use similar tech in one of our rooms so happy to discuss if this is of
interest.

57 Meter maids 11/7/2018 5:37 PM

58 Further building developments approved in east end of Newcastle and any new developments 11/7/2018 4:48 PM
approved over old heavy rail corridor must have at minimum 50% parking capacity by occupancy
for building included in DA.

59 I will be rarely dining in Newcastle in the future given the parking issues. I now prefer to dine in the 11/7/2018 3:02 PM
outer suburbs & the lake area. It's a real shame as I use to enjoy frequenting Newcastle & the (
beaches.

60 Stop the blatant revenue raising 11/7/2018 2:59 PM

61 I also worked at Audio Clinic Newcastle and that was hell on earth. We lost so many clients and so 11/7/2018 2:37 PM
much business. The footpath would always be blocked off and they would turn our clients away
and I would have to argue that I work there. Absolutely NO parking there and the footpath
reconstruction was horrendous. They opened my door and drilled right at the door. They didn't
have ear protection and neither did I - causing me a migraine, and I found the workers to be very
inconsiderate.I hope every1hing is finished down there, because it is killing the business.

62 would be nice if we could have more car parks at train station so we can park the car and take the 11/7/2018 1:33 PM
public transportinto town. Presuming that ii is highly unlikely there we be any more built in the
CBD.

63 Also being a resident of an inner city suburb, I rea lis e that the parking right in town is difficult. So I 11/7/2018 6:30 AM
try to walk to work as often as I can but with the parking now being changed throughout Cooks Hill
and getting rid of the free parking around Railway StreeVBull Street etc, I have absolutely no
where to park my car for the day so I am able to walk to work. It will be the same with the light rail
that the council continues to suggest we all use. That's fine. But without parking at our house
which a lot of terraces in Cooks Hill don't have, where will I park my car for the day that is not 2hr
parking so I can take the light rail or walk to work? In 2018, with family who do not live close by, it's
not an option to get rid of my car. The removal of free parking around Cooks Hill is absolutely
idiotic and nothing but another way for council to get more money in their pockets by handing out
fines.

64 Instead of putting up big business in inner city encourage them to move out and put some like into 11/6/2018 10:35 PM
some of the dying outer suburbs. Wallsend Main Street could do with some business and not be
the 2nd hand shop street that it has become. More parking is needed. I am sorry you have to sit
and read my rant but hopefully you will feel the frustration of what everyone is feeling with
Newcastle Council approvingly so many new developments and no adequate car parking. It really
is a joke with everyone. University - no parking Court house - no parking Multi story businesses -
no parking Multi story residences- no parking NO Parking!!!!

65 Should have been done years ago. Lack of free parking is killing business in Newcastle CBD. I 11/6/2018 4:14 PM
don't want to work there or run a business there for only that reason.

66 There needs to be more parking in the city. Many more spaces could be made available if 11/6/2018 2:40 PM
councilwere not so cautious!!!

67 Think about all of the members of this community that work and keep the economy humming when 11/6/2018 12:36 PM
the 9-5ers are being entertained, fed, spa'd, groomed, beers pulled, and gelato scooped. The
revitalising of Newy will die if it's all about one part of the economy.

BUSINESS_SURVEY - NEWCASTLE CBDPARKING
69 The city planners need to compare how the city centre compares to other areas for retail or 11/6/2018 11:48 AM
hospitality trade. Eg Warners Bay, Kotara, Charlestown, Maitland. These areas attract much larger
numbers of customers as there is ample convenient parking. All better options than the Newcastle
City Centre. Bikes, walking and public transport dramatically reduces the basket size opportunity
for potential traders. The current planning for city centre requires regular big events and a 1000%
increase in tourism year round as the city has now been developed to discourage people from
Lake Macquarie , Maitland, Cessnock, port StE?phens and even outer Newcastle suburbs from
coming in unless they have to. The Honeysuckle foreshore has been developed without any
architectural significance and Is essentially becoming a retirement village. The lack of an extended
ferry service to connect Raymond terrace, Stockton north or even hexham that connects with
Honeysuckle and Wickham is ridiculous. Continued comparisons or suggestions that Newcastle is
a global city with world class facilities is embarrassing. Newcastle is a small 159,000 population
micro 'city' with the greater Newcastle region being 1/15 the population of Sydney living in a
geographic area of similar or greater size. Build car-parks where they're needed and stop letting
the University and State government run the place. Final note is that their needs to be greater
requirement for developments to have architectural significance. Especially for the University and
public buildings.

70 I refuse to go into Newcastle due to the parking metres, I refuse to leave a court matter to top up 11/6/2018 11:13 AM
my parking, I refuse to go back to a hairdresser because I had to leave the salon with a head of
foils to top up the metre I refuse to go to lunch or dinner in Newcastle it causes stress because of
( the fear of getting fined, I would love to visit the beaches and the markets but not with stress of
getting a fine

71 Actually listen to business operators. it will be the success of business and attractiveness for new 11/6/2018 11:07 AM
operators that will determine the success of the revitalization.

72 I have classes that start at 8am for me to use public transport I would have to leave home too early 11/6/2018 9:18 AM
plus the train station closest to me does not have adequate parking to leavemy car and I would
have to catch too many buses to get from the lake. It's ridiculous there needs to be more parking
available near the University for students especially those that have classes finishing after dark as
well as a safety issue. I also find it difficult to go in town for leisure at restaurants theatre and clubs
as you can't get a park. Makes me want to stay on the outer suburbs.

73 I know that everyone says that if you work in the CBD you should use public transport, however 11/6/2018 8:29 AM
our public transport system is still very limited/basic, and as a working parent who has to take kids
to and from day care and school, its impossible to use public transport to facilitate these pick ups
and drop offs within the day cares operating hours and get to work on time. I think if they put in a
multi level car park somewhere it will help businesses a great deal!

74 The Park and Ride is a great Idea but because the Jesmond/JHH Interchange has never been 11/6/2018 5:53 AM
finished it is a gridlock on Newcastle Road both morning and afternoon so makes the journey to
and from Maryland to the stadium parking a long slow journey
75 I believe once the city settles into the changes happening we'll be able to properly assess the 11/6/2018 12:33 AM
situation.

76 Shouldn't you have done this sort of survey before now in the planning stages? 11/5/2018 11:32 PM

77 No loading zones for deliveries in hunter st from crown to Union, that's helpful. How do businesses 11/5/2018 11:09 PM
get deliveries?
78 There is anticipation that the light Rail will bring more people to town to shop for longer. I am 11/5/2018 10:48 PM
hoping the fee wont be expensive and there will be enough parking at the interchange to support
this. There is a growing amount of people living in the CBD now which is great but I presume that
parking will continue to remain a problem due to so many spaces gone. Please don't take away the
motorbike parking- its working! if anything add more spaces because there is an increase on
riders because its currently easier to park. It can only help.

79 you shouldhave left things alone in the first place 11/5/2018 9:24 PM
80 As a simultaneous resident of King Street Newcastle and fulltime employee on Wharf Road 11/5/2018 8:20 PM
Newcastle, it was the perfectopportunity for me to not need to drive to work, however without a
residential parking option, I was forced to drive the one street to work to park in potential
visiter/consumer car spaces, a situation shared by many of my residential neighborsand work
collegues; An accessable, local longer term parking facililty for residents and or 'out of town'
workers would have removed the pressure on CBD traffic and open up visitor/consumer parking.

shame. It would be great to see this place grow & expand like it should & deserves to to- I'd love to
work & stay in Newcastle for the next 6 years & ideally a lifetime, but Novocastrians are used to
driving- they absolutely need incentives if they are to give up their car & exchange it for public
transport.

87 I beli eve the light rail can be a success if more people use ii. Keep the ticket prices a dollar per trip 11/5/2018 10:08 AM
to encourage people to use it. Additionally a multi storey car park at the west end of the light rail
should help reduce the number of cars in the CBD. lesser cars means lesser parking issues.

103 I suspect that more professional businesses will move out of the CBD over time, leaving the city as 11/2/2018 7:31 PM
a hub for the University Precinct, Entertainment Precinct and residential apartments. Any
businesses that service those (such as take aways/ coffee shops etc) should do well, because of
the increased number of people. Professional businesses will get sick of the complaints and loss of
business because of the perception (and probably reality) that it is just too hard for parking.

to school pick up (with very limited time after I finish). Even if Park & ride operated at that time
(which it doesn't) I wouldn't make it to school on time

130 Support local business. they have lost so much and have been treated unfairly at the expense of 11/1/2018 2:28 PM
these transport works. The system had better be a real success to make the heartache worth it.
Lives are being destroyed.

131 The transport network needs a serious overhaul. The light rail is a shambles. 11/1/2018 2:26 PM

132 na 11/1/2018 2:24 PM

133 Loading zones need to be monitored more closely as vehicles are using them as parking spaces 11/1/2018 1:25 PM
for numerous hours instead of the r es tric ted 30m ins .

134 Please provide Parking for staff that travel from Central Coast, outer Newcastle, Hunter area, this 11/1/20 18 1:21 PM
is getting to the point that I would not even bring family up here for visits anymore due to the lack
of parking in the Newcastle Area. This will be hurting local business as who wants to travel to (
Newcastle on the Train on the weekend when the train does not even come into Newcastle city
area.

135 Where they have parking they need to have more buses to transport people and where they have 11/1/2018 1:17 PM
major bus stops such as the Interchange at Wickham they need to have undercover when it rains
and have a machine there to buy an opal card

136 Cheap/free parking and WAY MORE OF IT. 11/1/2018 11:51 AM

137 It seems interesting that this is being addressed post most of the carparks being removed from the 11/1/2018 11:08 AM
CBD. I'm not sure how this wasn't thought of before and infrastructure put in place.

138 It is currently far too onerous to get into the city & stay in there. There is neither the density or 11/1/2018 10:36 AM
public transport network that makes shifting so hard away from cars the right decision at this point.

139 Light Rail should have stayed on the heavy rail line. Elected and non-elected powerbrokers who 11/1/2018 10:31 AM
make these decisions should start listening to the ratepayers and citizens.

140 The park and ride service from Broadmeadow stadium is convenient and I use it 5 days a week. I 11/1/2018 9:06 AM
would hate to see this be disregarded.If it would be, I would hope parking changes will be
implemented in Newcastle to accommodate the extra people travelling in. There seems to be a lot
of new infrastructure going in - I just don't know where everything is expected to park

141 Acknowledge ane support our love of cars for transport...or stop bringing lye V8s to town the irony 11/1/2018 8:53 AM
is killing me

142 Park and ride is an imperative service for employees of businesses in the CBD - Council MUST 11/1/2018 8:44 AM
ensure funding for this initiative continues.

143 get rid of the bogan 500 (supercars) 10/31/2018 5:03 PM

144 It is very hard to stomach when I hear say all of Newcastle is and will be better of with all the 10/31/2018 4:42 PM
developmentsgoing on. Either small business is not counted as a part of Newcastle or the people
making the decisions don't care about small business. I have seen over a dozen businesses
disappear from Hunter St and Scott st this year. Those people were Newcastle residents as well.
They are not better off and they were not helped in anyway but a recalcitrant state government
and local council. The only people in Newcastle happy are the real estate agents and the
developers .

BUSINESS SURVEY - NEWCASTLE CBD PARKING

145 A lot of the program.tlQ_9.fil_ ople back into the CBD haYe been thwarted by-1ha.1raffi.cJ._ss!Le _s _an.d-1Dl3-1120_t8 .A.3_6_P,M
,_._
now the parking Issues. Regardless of what the Traffic Plan says about continuing to make
parking more difficult and expensive in order to get people into public transport Novocastrians
want to be able to drive and park if they have the need to. Making the peninsula customer
unfriendly does not help small business and instead reinforces the belief that the council is only
interested in development for developments sake, similarly to the attitude of the State
Government, and thus continues to erode the social fabric and uniqueness that is/was Newcastle.
This is not just a CBD problem. It affects the East End, Hunter Street central and Darby Street. It
pushes a social divide on Newcastle that never was. Now you can't consider coming into the city
centre or using Nobby,s and Newcastle beaches unless you have the money to buy into town and
leave your Maserati under the penthouse. Because Scott Street and Shortland Esplanade will be a
traffic nightmare due to poor planning, the 'solution' proposed of turning the Mall into the only way
to get out of the top of town will make more traffic nightmares that will continue to erode the
shopping experience of residents and visitors alike. Hunter Street is not buzzing as a recent
politician spruiked. !tis in fact a ghost town, and will continue to be for some time until we cater for
all needs and wishes, not just those with money or political folly.

146 Just stop making it impossible to come into the city. So much money into the city and making 10/31/2018 4:29 PM
people rely on public transport. People do not want to rely on public transport when they don't live
in the CBD. Anyone with young children, do not want to catch the light rail.

147 long term parking is almost non-existentin Newcastle and makes it very difficult and expensive for 10/31/2018 4:00 PM
workers to continue to work in the CBD

148 its so dangerous with the current parking and leaving late at night. my practice often means I leave 10/31/2018 3:58 PM
in the dark and I am terrified about having to walk because of the lack of accessible parking.

149 Seems counter productive that the council is trying to bring more people into the cbd but removing 10/31/2018 3:02 PM
car spaces. Doesn't that sound silly? Multiple customers have informed me that if that can't find a
park they just don't shop in the cbd. So many businesses are suffering and it's really sad how
obvious the solution is.

150 NCC will cripple this city by removing all the carparking 10/31/2018 2:56 PM

151 I understand that there needs to be short/timed car parks for clients and customers of the city but 10/31/2018 2:49 PM
there needs to be accessible longer car parking options for people who work in the city so that
people trying to get to the beach or around town aren't adversely impacted but neither are the
employees trying to work in the city

152 light rail alterations.super cars are killing the city 10/31/2018 1:40 PM

153 Am greatly concerned that even once light rail opens that lack of parking near transport 10/31/2018 1:02 PM
interchangewill mean that only those catching trains or buses into city or those already living or
working in the inner city will utilise the light rail. Where are the cycle lanes to encourage cycling
into the city?

154 public transport increase due to tramline may assist with those working in CBD who do not travel 10/31/2018 12:54PM
to clients, however those who need to visit client or clients to visit the business have been effected.
This needs to be looked into and improved. possible longer timed spots, more available untimed
spots for staff, easier access/ more frequent destination for trams including till late hours.

155 Newcaslte is trying to be a bigger city, but you do not have the transport or the ability to get from 10/31/2018 12:51 PM
outside suburbs into the city to work! Maybe when the construction is completed, we will not have
to fight for a car park with all the tradies!!!!I!

156 keep the buses on time. We can't rely to catch transport connection, even the FIRST BUS in the 10/31/2018 12:30PM
morning runs often late, causing us to miss connecting trains

157 I am wondering how has commissioned this survey..could you please let me know 10/31/2018 12:22PM

158 I go and drive in many different cities and I understand you can't park at the front door, and maybe 10/31/2018 11:43 AM
walking 3 blocks is fine, but when customers can't even get that at lunch time I believe it's an
issue, I also understand public transport is in a transitioning period but the unreliability won't allow
customers to rely on them.

159 Increasepublic parking stations to East end and West end areas, for say 500 at each area. 10/31/2018 11:27 AM

160 I catch a bus to work as driving in is too expensive to find parking. Starting at 10am makes it 10/31/2018 11:22 AM
impossible to find anything.

BUSINESS SURVEY - NEWCASTLE CBD PARKING

161 Please take the time and spend the money to retain car parks. What use is a cbd full of apartments 10/31/201810:46 AM
and nowhere to park for business customers? A city can't survive on coffee shops.Development
needs balance.
162 No 10/31/2018 10:34 AM

163 Ned to change the mentally of Neecastle workers and educate them to car pool and use the 10/31/2018 10:29 AM
inproved public transport that we have suggested.
164 When you have a disabled kid you need to drive. This has not been taken into account at all. 10/29/2018 4:34 PM
There is no parking in front of the Cerebral Palsy Disorders Clinic on HunterStreet for instance.
How friggin ridiculous.
