Parking Management Policy 2017

Parking Management Policy 2017

This Parking Management Policy provides principles to guide parking attractiveness in the city for residents, business, workers and visitors.

  • Provide car based visitor access that maximise both attractiveness and visitation to the activity precincts.
  • Optimise community benefit by ensuring high vehicle turns
  • Maintain and enhance 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. The community representatives for each precinct are:

  • Braybrook - Jessica Elston
  • Footscray CBD - Megan Bridger-Darling
  • Footscray Hospital - David Bird
  • Highpoint - Eddie Merrifield
  • Seddon - Melea Tarabay
  • West Footscray - Marilyn King
  • Whitten Oval - Linda Woods
  • Yarraville – Steve Smith

The boundaries of the wardsare being finalised and will be completed by early April 2018

Representatives from the trader groups in Braybrook, Footscray CBD, Seddon, West Footscray and Yarraville, and the venue operators from Footscray Hospital, Highpoint and Whitten Oval are also a part of the CAG.

The preparation of Parking Management Precinct Plans will occur over a number of years, and will be prioritised taking into account the size of each precincts as well as the level of visitation and parking demand.
