Parking Management Policy 2017
This Parking Management Policy provides principles to guide parking attractiveness 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.
This 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:
- Footscray CBD
- Footscray Hospital
- West Footscray
- Whitten Oval
Details of this Policy can be found below.
We’re bringing back paid parking to Footscray
Parking sensors were installed in 2018 and found the occupancy of parking spaces in the precinct exceeded 85%, meaning it is getting increasingly harder to find a parking space.
To ensure a higher turnover of parking spaces, and make it quicker and easier to find a parking space, we will be introducing paid parking.
This is following recent consultation with the community and will be effective in the Footscray CBD from 24 June 2019.
