The City of Launceston has advertised plans for a 100 space off-street car park along Lindsay Street, between Invermay Road and Goderich Street.
General manager Robert Dobrzynski said the council hoped to have the new car park operational before the 2016 Christmas season.
“The Council recognises that there's likely to be additional demand in the Lindsay Street area for parking as the $9 million North Bank project gets underway, coupled with the silos redevelopment,” he said.
“Since the reconstruction of the flood levees, the riverbank has been opened up into new recreational space that already attracts hundreds of people each weekend, who are out jogging, walking and cycling in the areas from the Cataract Gorge, to Royal Park, the Seaport, North Bank and Inveresk.
“The North Bank redevelopment will only add to this, and promises to become a major new recreational hub for Northern Tasmania, featuring a $2 million all-abilities playground, walking and cycling trails, heritage interpretation and much more.”
