Changes to parking in your area

PARKING CHANGES DELAYED UNTIL COVID-19 PANDEMIC ENDS

Moreland Council's implementation of the new planned parking restrictions in some areas of Moreland has been delayed until after the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

You do not need to apply for a parking permit to park in your street at this time, as Council parking officers are not enforcing timed restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the planned changes to parking restrictions in the Brunswick and Coburg areas has been delayed until after the pandemic

Further information will be available for residents and businesses in the affected areas soon.

About the changes

In March 2019, Council adopted the Moreland Integrated Transport Strategy, a plan to encourage sustainable transport, like walking, cycling, and public transport, as much as possible to keep Moreland as a great place to live.

One of the actions out of the strategy was to implement better parking management across Moreland.

What on-street parking changes we are making

We are changing the time-limits to on-street parking in certain areas.

In these areas, on-street parking which currently do not have time-limits will be changed to:

  • 2P 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday (in most cases)

  • In some places we will introduce additional disabled or business parking, or longer term restrictions, such as 3P.

Why change on street parking?

Parking changes are happening in the parts of Moreland that will see the most growth in coming years. The changes aim to ensure these areas remain walkable, liveable and economically viable. Managing car use and sharing on-street parking more fairly will benefit the local community.

By managing on-street car parking Council will:

      • Encourage vehicle turnover in activity centres (more cars using a car space each day) to maximise retail shopping, food, entertainment and other opportunities for residents and visitors.

      • Protect and prioritise parking access for some existing residents living in or around busy Activity Centres through our resident parking permit system.

      • Slow the growth of cars in Moreland into the future, creating safer roads for all users and less pollution for our environment. 

      • Recognise that car travel will remain essential for some people, but encourage the use of walking, cycling and public transport as much as possible.
