MC CAR PARK ROOF TOP (CIVIC HUB)
The proposed subproject under SCDP is to develop the Rooftop of the Kandy Municipal Car Park so that it could be used for multiple purposes such as commercial, business, cultural and recreational activities. The car park is the property of the Kandy Municipal Council (KMC), which is one of the PPAs of SCDP. The surface area of the Rooftop of the Car Park is 6,800 square meters. The Rooftop is an open space which is primarily used for commercial activities.
The main activities that are conducted on the Rooftop at present include an open fair (pola) which is held twice a week and a food court that supplies a variety of traditional local food. Apart from these two main activities, part of the floor area of the Rooftop is also used for parking the vehicles of vendors who operate the open fair and the food court. In addition, there are a few built structures one of which is occupied by the KMC’s solid waste management coordination unit, and the other is a police post.
