Parking Management Policy 2017

Raleigh Street and Albert Street Car Parks

From Monday 1 July 2024, you will need a valid parking ticket when using Raleigh Street and Albert Street car parks.

Due to high levels of occupancy, parking meters are being introduced to increase parking turnover.  This will make more spaces available for customers to visit our traders and services throughout the day.

The cost of a ticket will be $2.30 per hour or $9.60 for all day parking, payable at the Pay by Plate meter or ticket machine in the car park or via the EasyPark app.


The Parking Management Policy (the Policy) provides principles to guide parking in the City for residents, business, workers and visitors, it aims to:

  • Provide car based visitor access that maximises both attractiveness and visitation to the activity precincts.
  • Optimises community benefit by ensuring high vehicle turn over
  • Maintains and enhances residential amenity.

The Policy was developed with the input from the Community Advisory Group established with members representing residents and key traders/venue operators across the eight identified precincts, these precincts include:

  • Braybrook
  • Footscray CBD
  • Footscray Hospital
  • Highpoint
  • Seddon
  • West Footscray
  • Whitten Oval
  • Yarraville.
