SHANE Davey from Capricorn Model House says there is still a major parking problem in the Rockhampton CBD, one that is driving customers away and forcing businesses to move out.

"Just in this block there's a dozen empty shops," he said this morning.

The passionate shop manager has spoken to a number of other businesses along East St recently, who all agree something needs to be done.

Shane is calling for better communication between the Rockhampton Regional Council and the shop owners.
