“If you’re going to be building multi-deck car parks, I think it’s important that you actually do the due diligence to understand where the best location is.”

“These will be in the city forever in the end and we want to make sure they are in the right place, and they service the community appropriately,” Mr. King said.

Sites previously earmarked for multi-deck car parks include Ballarat Base Hospital, Federation University SMB Campus, Little Bridge Street shopping precinct and Anderson Street West.
