The majority of Wingecarribee Councillors have knocked back a mixed use development proposal for the old Bowral Spare parts site on the corner of Bong Bong and Bowral Streets.

The main concerns centred around a lack of off street parking.

Council staff assessed there would be a shortfall of 34 spaces, which Mayor Duncan Gair believes could pose a problem, given the proposal includes a restaurant.

The Mayor says it could also set a bad precedent for other future developments in Bowral.
