We’re developing a draft Parking Strategy to help us plan and manage parking availability in Bayside.
Providing car parking to meet the demands of all road users is one of Council’s biggest challenges.
A first phase of community engagement helped us to better understand parking needs and priorities. Find out more.
Community feedback, alongside parking data and policies, is now informing the development of a draft Parking Strategy for Bayside.
The draft Parking Strategy is expected be open for community feedback in late November 2022.

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.
