Changes to parking in your area

In March 2019, Council adopted the Moreland Integrated Transport Strategy, a plan to encourage sustainable transport, like walking, cycling, and public transport, as much as possible to keep Moreland as a great place to live.

One of the actions out of the strategy was to implement better parking management across Moreland.

What on-street parking changes we are making

We are changing the time-limits to on-street parking in certain areas.

In these areas, on-street parking which currently do not have time-limits will be changed to:

  • 2P 8am to 11pm Monday to Friday (in most cases)

  • In some places we will introduce additional disabled or business parking, or longer term restrictions, such as 3P).

Changes to parking will be rolled out in the following areas and in the following timeframes:

By end of 2019, the areas near the shopping strips of:

  • Grantham Street, Brunswick West

  • Gaffney Street, Pascoe Vale

  • West Street, Hadfield

By mid 2020:

Significant portions of

  • Brunswick
  • Brunswick East
  • Coburg
  • Glenroy

Smaller parts of:

  • Pascoe Vale South
  • Fawkner
  • Oak Park
  • Coburg North

    • Residents of properties that have been subdivided after August 2011, such as newer townhouses and apartments, are not eligible for a resident parking permit.This has been in place since Council’s adoption of the 2011 Parking Management Policy . This policy provided protection for existing residents in older properties who rely on on-street parking.

If you are a resident moving house, or having works done:

    • If you need temporary parking for a service, such as a tradesperson or removalist, you can apply for a service permit. Cost: $20 per week up to a month. Apply for a service permit online.
    • All residents are eligible to apply for this permit.

 If you are a business owner

  • If you need to park on the street for longer than the parking sign time, you are eligible for up to 2 business parking permits.
    Cost: $131.10 per year for the first permit, $196.70 for subsequent permits.

Additionally, you may also be eligible for up to 3 temporary business parking permits, until 30 June 2021. These permits help businesses and organisations as we implement these parking changes.

If you are a home care worker:

    • We are currently considering the needs of home care workers and home visits. More information about permits options for this type of worker will become available in the coming weeks.

If you are not eligible for a permit but have special needs:

  • You can apply for an exemption based on needing visits for health, disability, and other special reasons. These are assessed on a case-by-basis. 
  • You can make an appeal by emailing us at betterparking@moreland.vic.gov.au or sending a letter addressed to the Unit Manager Transport, Locked Bag 10, Moreland 3058.

What is the processing time for a parking permit?

It takes up to 2 weeks to process a parking permit so if you know you will be affected, we recommend applying straight away.

Why change on-street parking in Moreland?

To ensure that Moreland’s activity centres remain walkable, liveable and economically viable, Council needs to better manage car use and create a fairer way to share the limited on-street parking in Moreland for the benefit of the local community.

By managing on-street car parking Council will:

  • Encourage vehicle turnover in activity centres (more cars using a car space each day) to maximise retail shopping, food, entertainment and other opportunities for residents and visitors.

  • Protect and prioritise parking access for some existing residents living in or around busy Activity Centres through our residential parking permit system.

  • Creating a new permit type for residents not eligible for visitor permit, for when a tradesperson or similar is working at their property.

  • Creating a new permit type that anybody can apply for but is at a higher cost to discourage widespread use.

  • Cap all day paid parking rates to make it more affordable for those who need to park all day.

How are people with special needs, disability or extenuating circumstances being considered?

Throughout the drafting and implementation of the Moreland Integrated Transport Strategy we have considered ways which we can better meet the needs of people with a disability and other vulnerable groups.

As a result of this, we have implemented the following measures:

  • expanding concession discounts for parking permits to more people and to apply to more types of permits
  • expanding grounds for appealing permit ineligibility
  • flexibility to consider local conditions when applying parking changes (e.g. 3P rather than 2P near medical centres)
  • allowing residents with disabled parking permits to access residential and visitor parking permits, even if they live in housing subdivided after August 2011
  • offering a new permit type that allows health care workers and others conducting home visits to be exempt from timed restrictions when conducting visits
  • additional permits for eligible households and businesses affected by parking changes
  • introducing new permit types to provide more options
  • introducing a daily cap on the price of paid parking
  • allowing more flexible use of business parking permits in certain time restricted parking areas to assist businesses and other organisations
  • authorising the CEO to make further adjustments as needed
  • Continuing to create disabled parking bays near shops, medical services and the like, and create these bays outside homes without crossovers (driveways) on request
  • Undertaking a formal human rights assessment
