TAMSâ€™s response to the parking woes at Cooleman Court seems to be the offering up of private parking at other venues to overcome the shortage of car parking at the Centre. TAMS commissioned a study in December 2009 after WCCC raised parking at Cooleman Court as a community concern. The study results were not surprising as it found what Weston Creek residents already knew - that the main car parks are â€˜operating at full capacityâ€™!
