College Park Precinct - Parking Review

Changes to the parking arrangements in the College Park precinct are proposed. Do you live, work or visit the area? If so, please check out the engagement page and provide your thoughts.

A review of the parking arrangements in this area have been undertaken by the City due to concerns raised by residents regarding parking on Waroonga Road and Melvista Avenue. The aim of this review is to improve the amenity of the area while ensuring the needs of residents, visitors and businesses are met.

The review incorporates the area bounded by Stirling Highway, Melvista Avenue, Bay Road, Taylor Road and Leopold Street. The review area was chosen due to the proximity of College Park sporting clubs and Stirling Highway businesses that place a large demand on parking in the area.

As part of the review, a survey was undertaken by the City to identify parking trends relating to on-street parking and council verges. It identified areas of high use where restrictions are currently in place or not.

Based on the evidence collected through the review and the parking survey the following changes are proposed:

  • Waroonga Road between Stirling Highway and Jenkins changed from one to two-hour parking restriction
  • Three- hour parking prohibitions introduced between Jenkins Avenue and Princess Road for Taylor, Bulimba, Waroonga and Rockton Roads

Your feedback on the proposals are invited and will be considered before the final stage is implemented.

The proposed recommendations will be implemented in two phases:

  • Phase one: Community consultation and review of feedback on the proposed changes, then prepare a report to Council which will result in the parking restrictions being initiated.
  • Phase two: Implement proposed parking changes and monitor over three-month period, then review the impact of the parking modifications and recommend any adjustment. Subject to the outcome of the review and community engagement process, changes will be implemented by either a report to the Council (for major changes) or Administration (for minor changes).

Phase two will take place within three months of the completion of phase one. The affected residents will be invited to comment on the outcomes of phase one.

Your feedback on the proposals are invited and will be considered before the final stage is implemented.
