A fairer way to manage parking

Our City is growing - increasing the need for fairer and more reliable access to carparking. After extensive engagement with our residents, businesses, workers and visitors, Council has developed a new draft Parking Management Policy to:

  • Address the City’s existing and future growth and transport challenges.
  • Ensure fairer and more reliable access to carparking in all locations at all times.

Council's current Parking Permit Policy was created in 2000 and only provided guidelines for Parking Permits and excluded information about time controls and paid parking.

The draft Parking Management Policy will act as a framework not only for Parking Permits but for overall management of Council’s 53,000 on-street and 4,000 Council-owned off-street car spaces.

The proposed Policy at a glance

In July and August 2019, we asked our residents, businesses, workers and visitors about their use of and thoughts about carparking in our City, as well as any suggestions they had for improving its availability and access.

To see how we used this feedback to create each of the proposed policy settings in our draft Parking Management Policy, download our fact sheets:

Word versions of these fact sheets can be found under 'Fact sheets' in the right hand menu.
