UPDATE

Council staff are working with the Port Noarlunga Business and Tourism Association (PNBTA) to find a suitable start date for the project that works in best with the surrounding businesses to reduce disruption. Council approval to progress to construction will be sought in the coming months.

Overall, the feedback was positive, there is strong support for the Arts Centre parking extension while the support for the Gawler street parking is more varied. Businesses saw Gawler Street as a good project, while preferring the parking area to be larger and moved south closer the Arts Centre. Residents saw the concept as too big and want the parking area reduced or left as a grassed area for recreation activities.

We will continue to keep the community informed.

Background

The beautiful beach side township of Port Noarlunga welcomes visitors and locals from all over who enjoy everything the town has to offer from eateries and art galleries to the jetty and beach.

It is now proposed to improve parking in the township by sealing the informal parking area next to the Port Noarlunga Arts Centre as well as creating a larger space in the reserve on Gawler Street for overflow during peak times.
