UPDATE 17//3/22: Consultation on this strategy is now closed. Council is expected to consider a draft Parking Strategy at the August Council Meeting. Later this year, we’ll be asking for feedback on a draft Parking Strategy to ensure we’ve got it right.

Help us understand your parking needs and concerns

As our population grows, so does the number of vehicles using our roads and streets. This creates traffic and parking pressures which we know are a top concern for many residents.

Providing more parking availability is important, but it can drive even more parking demand and traffic congestion by encouraging car ownership.

Already, the demand for on-street parking often outweighs supply, particularly in shopping precincts, at the foreshore, and around schools . Simply put, there is not enough room on busy streets to provide everyone with a parking space.

But we can change how we manage parking and move around Bayside.

Historically, our cities were designed to prioritise cars. Now, we need to provide equitable access to parking for those who need it most and help make walking, cycling and the use of public transport easier.
