Newcastle City Council and Newcastle Now have teamed up to offer free parking on Saturdays at the King St carpark! Novocastrians love a free park. So, we’re all a little excited about this announcement.
That means parking at the Mall Parking Station from this Saturday until the end of the year will be totally free.
The idea came from a conversation on Facebook between CBD traders and Newcastle City Councillor Carol Duncan.
“A number of traders expressed in a Facebook conversation that providing free parking will help reduce the difficulty for shoppers of locating a car park on a Saturday, so offering the Mall Parking Station was a logical step given it’s owned by Newcastle City Council,” Councillor Carol Duncan said.
Newcastle Now Chair Edward Duc said local businesses should encourage staff to use the free service.
“We are calling on small business to encourage staff to get their cars off the street and into the Mall Parking Station, freeing up hundreds of on-street car spaces for their customers.”
The Mall Parking Station is located at 92 King Street, below Christ Church Cathedral.
