Darebin Parking Strategy 2019-2029

Darebin Council has withdrawn its draft Parking Strategy and draft revised Parking Permit Policy following the Council Meeting on 11 June.

We live in a progressive community who are open to tackling the big issues in our city. Council put these draft parking proposals to our community in good faith so we could hear feedback from residents. This has come through loud and clear with a majority of respondents saying they did not want restrictions in their street. Council’s decision to withdraw the draft parking proposals demonstrates our clear commitment to listening to the voices of our residents.

Going forward, Council will continue its current street-by-street process when it comes to assessing parking restrictions. We will progress the current petitions that we have on hold in priority order and contact all residents who have lodged a petition to update them on the next steps.

The remaining Parking Strategy focus groups and the public hearing scheduled for June 20 have now been cancelled. Those who have registered to attend will be notified.

We would like to sincerely thank all of the residents who took time out of their day to tell us their views. We hope you will continue to engage with other Council projects as they arise.
