About the changes

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.

Why change on street parking?

Parking changes are happening in the parts of Moreland that will see the most growth in coming years. The changes aim to ensure these areas remain walkable, liveable and economically viable. Managing car use and sharing on-street parking more fairly will benefit 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 resident parking permit system.

      • Slow the growth of cars in Moreland into the future, creating safer roads for all users and less pollution for our environment. 

      • Recognise that car travel will remain essential for some people, but encourage the use of walking, cycling and public transport as much as possible.
