Free Parking Terms and Conditions
2021 Parking Assistance Program
‘Park in Parramatta for free’ campaign February to 30 April 2021
City of Parramatta Council (Council) recognises the recent unprecedented challenges faced by local businesses within the Church Street precinct, caused by the cumulative impact of construction work from Transport for NSW’s Parramatta Light Rail project, other significant building projects occurring across the City of Parramatta CBD, and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Council is committed to working with businesses across the City of Parramatta local government area to support them as much as possible, so they can maintain business continuity in the long term and contribute to the liveliness and vibrancy of our City by providing goods and services to our residents and visitors.
In an effort to help encourage customers to visit the CBD and shop at local businesses, Council is building on last year’s successful ‘Feast on Eat Street free parking’ campaign launching the 2021 Parking Assistance Program (Program).
The Program offers customers who spend $20 or more (including GST) at participating businesses a voucher for free parking from 11am to 3am, Monday to Saturday. The offer is valid at Council-operated Eat Street and City Centre carparks until 30 April 2021 unless Council notifies a change to the Program.
The conditions of participation in the program are as follows:
- From time to time, Council will provide businesses with free parking vouchers which they may then distribute to customers in accordance with these conditions.
- Any customer to whom a business provides a free parking voucher must have spent a minimum of $20 (including GST) within that business on a Monday to Saturday between the hours of 11:00am-3:00am. The business must ensure free parking vouchers are only issued to genuine customers.
- Free parking vouchers can be redeemed at the following Council-operated car parks:
- Eat Street Car Park – 1-7 Erby Place, Parramatta; and
- City Centre Car Park – Horwood Place, Parramatta.
- Any free parking voucher issued to a customer must be used by that customer on the same day as the purchase (to the value of $20 or more in one transaction) was made.
- A maximum of one voucher per customer per day may be issued by a business.
- Each of Council’s car parks operate with different ticketing systems. Accordingly, before issuing a customer with a free parking voucher, the business must confirm which car park the customer has parked at. A free parking ticket for one car park, will not work in another car park. As such, Council will provide businesses with separate free parking vouchers for Eat Street Car Park and for City Centre Car Park.
- Customers who have not parked at the above Council-operated car parks will not be entitled to free parking vouchers.
- Free parking vouchers must only be issued to customers Monday to Saturday after 11am. All vouchers must be used to exit the car park before 3am the following morning.
- Free parking vouchers must only be made available to customers who meet the criteria set out in these conditions. Unauthorised persons (including staff) must not use any of the free parking vouchers.
- If Council considers that any business is not adhering to the terms and conditions of the Program (including issuing free parking vouchers to unauthorised persons), Council may at any time withdraw or cancel the Program, in whole or in part, and may cancel, invalidate or request the return of, any unused free parking vouchers at the time of cancellation.
- Any parking vouchers provided by Council will remain valid until 30 April 2021.
- Businesses participates in the Program at their own risk and businesses release and hold harmless Council for any damage, expense, loss, penalty or liability of any kind suffered as a consequence of or arising out of the Program.
- The Program shall end on 30 April 2021. However, Council reserves the right to unilaterally suspend, terminate or extend the Program at any time in its sole discretion.
- The number of free parking vouchers made available to businesses will be limited. Council will determine how many free parking vouchers will be made available to each business.
- By participating in the Program, businesses are deemed to have reviewed and accepted the terms and conditions contained in this document.
