(3) 15-minute parking was provided at the group centres and at local precincts where demand for takeaway pick up parking during the COVID-19 pandemic was foreseeable. Local businesses were consulted about the parking changes as they were implemented and were generally supportive of the parking changes as part of the various measures required within the hospitality industry to keep businesses viable during the pandemic.

(4) A review of the parking changes has not been undertaken yet. TCCS will consult with affected businesses prior to removing the temporary restrictions to determine if some 15-minute parking may be required in the longer term.

Parking—limited time(Question No 204)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Transport and City Services, upon notice, on 23 April 2021:

(1) When free 15-minute parking was introduced in restaurant and café precincts to collect takeaway food and drinks, was the consideration primarily for those picking up their own food and drinks, delivery drivers picking up food and drinks, or both.

(2) Does the ACT Government have any data about which areas are most heavily used for pickups by delivery drivers; if so, what is it.

(3) Does the ACT Government have any data to indicate that delivery drivers have access to sufficient short-term parking near restaurants and cafés to be able to perform their work efficiently.
