Place Parking Plans

Overview

In 2014 new parking restrictions were implemented in the Town of Victoria Park as part of our Parking Management Plan (PMP). In February 2021, the Town’s Council resolved to update the PMP, which was out of date due to a shift in priorities within activity centres, and travel choices of residents and visitors.

The PMP is the primary guiding document for the management of existing and future parking within the Town. Both this and the Town’s permit parking policy, which provides parameters for permit parking within the Town, directly align with the core strategic aims of the Town’s Integrated Transport Strategy.

Movement and Place Approach

The PMP was developed in response to the Integrated Transport Strategy and uses its assessment of the Town through the Movement and Place approach. This approach recognises that streets are not just for the movement of people and goods but also for place. The Strategy provides a Movement and Place street typology function for all streets within the Town. These typologies were used in the development of the initiatives and actions of the PMP.

STREET TOPOLOGY FUNCTION  TYPICAL PARKING RESPONSE
Movement corridors Movement Corridors provide safe, reliable, and efficient movement of people and goods between regions and mitigate impact on adjacent communities Limited or no on-street parking
Vibrant Streets Vibrant Streets are significant complex places that attract both large numbers of people and move large numbers of people by various modes from all over the region. Vibrant streets aim to ensure a high-quality public realm with a strong focus on supporting businesses, traders, and neighbourhood life. Formal and restricted on-street parking
Local Streets Local Streets provide quiet, safe, and desirable residential access for all ages and abilities. Local streets aim to foster community spirit through facilitating local access. Informal and unrestricted on-street parking only
Streets for People Streets for People are significant places which attract large volumes of people and facilitate pedestrian access and activity. Accessible parking only (where possible)

Each activity centre within the Town has unique characteristics with respect to land use and parking. To address this, individual parking management plans have been established for 10 key places within the town. The parking landscape within these places will change in the future with some ‘Movement Corridors’ within the activity centres changing movement and place street typology to become ‘Vibrant Streets’ or ‘Streets for People’. This change will play an important role in achieving the Town’s vision as a Dynamic Place for Everyone.
