To improve vehicular access to local businesses and medical facilities in and around the Macksville CBD, Council is increasing the parking time limit on 74 parking spaces from 1 hour to 2 hours.

Princess Street (near Fire Brigade station)           5 spaces
Wallace Street (West of Princess Street)              6 spaces
River Street (near Princess Street)                       14 spaces
