Between 7 October and 3 November 2019, the City of Port Phillip sought community feedback on the draft Parking Management Policy via an online survey as well as meetings with residents and business owners.

The draft Policy has been informed by more than four years of consultation with the community.


The proposed changes in the draft Policy include:

  • Area-based Residential Parking Areas to create fairer access to parking for residents.
  • Demand responsive time controls and paid parking areas designed to maximise turnover and increase carparking availability based on demand.
  • A more streamlined and flexible range of available Parking Permit types.
  • Tiered pricing for Resident Parking Permits to promote the use of existing off-street parking resources and further manage demand across the City.
