(2) Extending pay parking into Territory parking spaces at the Belconnen Town Centre was part of the ACT Government's sustainable transport strategy, designed to encourage greater use of public transport, carpooling, cycling and walking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. The extension of pay parking also made parking arrangements in the Belconnen Town Centre consistent with other major centres in the ACT.

(3) In May 2002, the ACT Government announced as part of the 2002/03 budget that pay parking would be introduced into Territory carparks within the Belconnen and Tuggeranong Town Centres.

A detailed implementation plan was developed involving public consultation. Techniques used to engage the wide range of stakeholders included media releases, displays of proposed parking implementation plans, comment feedback sheets, two stakeholder workshops and meetings and discussions with individual stakeholders and groups.

(4) Relevant suggestions and comments from stakeholders were incorporated into the final implementation plan.

(5) Not applicable.

(6) No. The ACT Government considers it not appropriate to review the decision to implement pay parking into the Belconnen Town Centre.
