Over the past 12 months Lord Mayor Graham Quirk had ignored several petitions calling for the Council to act to keep parking at shopping centres free. Just a few days ago though, Brisbane City Council announced Westfield will only be permitted to expand its Chermside centre if it provides more than 500 car parks free of charge
We know it took guts to stand up to the Westfield machine. Our sources at City Hall tell us they expect Westfield to fight back in the courts. So today we want to congratulate Lord Mayor Graham Quirk for doing the right thing by residents.
