Our suburban streets play an important role for both residents and the city as a whole. They provide space for people to move around the city, green space, places to meet and socialise, and they often provide parking.

This creates competing demands for space with dedicated cycle or public transport lanes, landscaping and areas to socialise often impacting on parking spaces.

We are developing a Suburban Parking Policy to address these competing demands for public space in suburban streets.

The proposed policy covers parking outside the central city bounded by the four avenues. While no parking changes are being proposed by this policy, it will affect future proposals. Specific parking changes will still be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The development of the draft policy was informed by community feedback from late 2016, when the Council received 214 submissions.

The draft suburban car parking policy is open for public consultation

Thanks to everyone who shared their views in the initial round of community feedback:
