Melvista Park Precinct - Parking Review

Changes to the parking arrangements in the Melvista 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 has been undertaken by the City and your feedback is invited. 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 Broadway, Edward, Webster and Bruce Streets and the Esplanade, extending about 800m from the University of Western Australia. The review area was chosen due to the proximity of UWA, multiple sporting clubs and 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 parking survey, a series of recommendations are proposed (refer document library/attached map(s)).

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.

How can you get involved, find out more or provide feedback?

You can participate in this parking review by:

Project updates and the outcomes will be published via the "News Feed" on this page.

Please note that all responses to the proposals will be placed on this engagement page.

    • When erecting new parking signs the City will attempt to install the poles between property boundaries where possible to minimise disturbance to nature strips.
