Chair Commissioner Andrew Hammond said the free parking trial has been a long time coming and is aimed at bringing people back into the city and just in time for Christmas.
“We’re proud to bring this free parking trial to fruition, and assist our City retailers in time for the Christmas shopping season,” Chair Commissioner Hammond said.

“We expect this trial to attract more shoppers into Perth’s malls and allow City retailers to compete with suburban shopping centres.”
The approval of the 12-month trial follows an injection of an extra $1.4 million to extend the Christmas Retail Campaign into the new year.
The trial will also extend to selected on-street parking bays near the retail core on weekends and public holidays as well.
