The Policy regulates parking permits issued by Glen Eira City Council in accordance with the resident parking scheme established under Schedule 11 of the Act. The Policy sets out the eligibility conditions in relation to residential parking permits issued by Council. The purpose of the Policy is to:
- provide residents, and their visitors eligible to participate in the resident parking scheme, with on-street parking within convenient walking distance of their homes, where practicable;
- provide an empathetic approach to residential parking, understanding the broad requirements for parking across the community and providing access to those who most require it; be transparent about where resident exemptions to on-street restrictions will apply and how restrictions will be applied;
- adopt measures to reduce the instances of permit misuse where problems are known to occur;
- adopt a pricing strategy for permits that is equitable in providing some basic privileges but seeks to encourage sustainable transport alternatives where options are available; provide tradespersons in nominated streets in the municipality access to on-street public car parking in the vicinity of a location at which they are working.
A copy of the Policy and the Local Law are available online at www.gleneira.vic.gov.au or can be inspected, during office hours, at Glen Eira City Council office at the corner Glen Eira and Hawthorn Roads, Caulfield.
