Have your say on parking priorities
We’ve drafted a Parking Strategy to better manage Bayside’s parking resources and encourage more sustainable transport
Thursday 24 November 2022
We know that finding a parking spot in our shopping precincts, parks, near beaches, and residential streets can sometimes be challenging and frustrating. And we know that access to sustainable transport options like walking, cycling, public transport, and electric vehicles is important to Baysiders.
That’s why we’ve drafted a Parking Strategy to better manage Bayside’s parking resources and encourage more sustainable transport.
The draft Strategy sets out how we’ll prioritise different users' needs at locations such as shopping precincts, the foreshore, and residential streets. It also has a major focus on encouraging sustainable transport, through support for EV charging stations, and car share, e-bike and e-scooter services. Another key focus for action is ensuring disabled parking provision meets community needs.
An initial phase of consultation was completed in March 2022 to understand community priorities and identify potential solutions. This community feedback was used to inform the development of Bayside’s draft Parking Strategy.
Now, we’d like to ensure we’ve got it right. Feedback on the draft Parking Strategy will be open from 24 November to 22 December 2022.
Council is expected to consider the draft Parking Strategy at the May 2023 Council Meeting.
