Managing demand for on street parking close to shopping centres, commercial centres, schools and train stations is a constant dilemma for Council and the community.

Residents want to be able to park close to home while commuters need to access trains, parents need to drop and pick up children at school, employees need to park near work and traders need customers to be able to park close to their business.

Council tries to balance these competing needs through a consistent approach described in two policies, both are currently under review and we encourage residents to provide feedback on Council's current approach.

Provide feedback on the policies

Managing On-Street Car Parking Demand

Competition for on-street carparking is increasing throughout the municipality, demand is already high in residential areas close to shopping centres, commercial centres and train stations. Residents in these areas, particularly those who have limited access to private off-street car parking, have to compete with all road users for the available on-street car parking spaces.

The intent of this Policy is to provide consistent and transparent guidance for the introduction of new parking restrictions in areas where on-street car parking may be causing a road safety hazard or where on-street car parking spaces are in high demand and this has resulted in car parking congestion.

This Policy has been developed to ensure a consistent, equitable and inclusive approach to the investigation, consultation, design, implementation and subsequent monitoring of parking restrictions.

Residential Parking Permit Scheme Draft Policy

Competition for on-street car parking spaces is increasing throughout the Municipality. Residents living close to Activity Centres, commercial centres, shopping centres and train stations who have limited access to private off-street car parking, have to compete with all road users for the available on-street spaces.

Without intervention, residents and their visitors can find it difficult to locate a parking space close to their homes.

This Policy specifies the criteria by which Residential Parking Permits will be allocated to households for use by themselves and their visitors and will define the process by which permits will be considered.
