In some parts of Glen Eira, it can be challenging to find an on-street parking space, particularly around train stations, shopping centres, schools and other significant activity generators.
If you are a resident, you may find it difficult for you or your visitors to park close to your home.
If you are a trader, you may find there is limited availability of parking for your staff and customers.
Such concerns are investigated by our Transport Planning Department to see whether new or different parking restrictions are necessary.
In a residential street, parking restrictions are generally considered necessary when on-street parking is not available within a reasonable distance of your home. In such cases, a short-term parking restriction is typically installed along one side of the street (eg. two hour parking). Eligible residents and their visitors can overstay the restriction with a permit but others must obey the time limit.
Sometimes residents request the installation of parking restrictions on both sides of their street. This rarely occurs as adequate on-street parking is typically provided following the implementation of restrictions on one side of the street. Council also aims to provide a fair and equitable balance of parking for all users, including residents, visitors, employees, commuters and others.
In our commercial centres it is necessary to provide a mix of parking restrictions to suit the overall needs of the centre. This typically involves various short-term parking restrictions (eg. 15 minute parking, one hour parking and two hour parking) to ensure parking spaces are turned over on a regular basis. This means customers can obtain a parking space more easily.
It is important to note that parking restrictions are in most cases only installed or changed following a consultation process with affected property occupants. A significant level of support must be gained before any changes occur.
We are responsible for managing parking within the City. Its goal is to ensure the safety of motorists, pedestrians and other road users by enforcing the provisions of the Road Safety Act 1986; the Road Safety Road Rules 2009 and the Local Government Act 1989. Council also attempts to ensure the equitable use of parking spaces, especially around shopping centres and major transport areas.
Within these areas parking demand exceeds supply hence the need for parking restrictions to ensure a fair and equitable allocation system. Trafﬁc Safety Ofﬁcers will issue parking infringement notices to help achieve this. Any enquiries regarding parking infringement notices should be directed to Council’s contractor Tenix Solutions on 9200 8210.
