Why should Westfield be required to pay for that? They're perfectly entitled to charge for car parking without having to give extra concessions.
Part of the zoning and other planning permissions for things like a shopping center look at the impact they will have on the surrounding area. If they are going to be doing something that will have an impact (drawing in customers to park on nearby streets) then that is a consideration that needs to be taken into mind.
