College Park Precinct - Parking Review

Consultation has concluded

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.

The Council has now approved the proposal.

Your feedback on the new restrictions are invited and will be considered before the project is finalised.

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 - COMPLETED
  • 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) - UNDERWAY

Phase two is currently underway. If you have not provided your comments please do so ASAP by using the feedback tool below.

    • The placement of repeater signs maybe greater or less depending on vehicle turnover, local area density, road environment and sightline visibility issues such as crests or road curves.
    • When erecting new parking signs the City will attempt to install the poles between property boundaries where possible to minimise disturbance to nature strips.

    If you have any queries in relation to the above, please contact the City on (08) 9273 3500.
