The City has developed a range of proposals to address the parking needs and amenity of the Mt Claremont shopping precinct and Asquith Park in response to numerous requests and a petition from residents to address the parking issues in this area.

  • Area 2: Parking area in front of Cellarbrations Liquor Barn
  • Area 3: Asquith Street (Strickland to Adderley Street)
  • Area 4: 25 Strickland Street
  • Area 5: Olearia Lane (rear of 25 Strickland Street)
