Georges River Car Parking Strategy

The Georges River Car Parking Strategy (Strategy) applies to all business centres in the Georges River local government area (LGA). The aim of this Strategy is to set a direction for car parking across our LGA to maintain and increase economic activity within the business centres. Some of the car parks are not zoned business, but are included in the Strategy as they serve a business centre (for example, Carwar Avenue Car Park in Carss Park).

The Strategy aims to:

  • Understand the current parking situation;
  • Identify opportunities to improve, remove, keep and increase current parking;
  • Ensure parking meets demand and is used in the best way;
  • Encourage the use of sustainable transport and reduce cars; and
  • Review the car parking requirements in Council’s Development Control Plan.

Council approved the Position Paper and the Strategy on 27 April 2020.

The key changes include making car parking requirements consistent throughout the LGA. This means similar or reduced car parking rates in strategic and other centres for places such as businesses and offices, retail, restaurants / cafes and medical centres.

Other recommendations include:

  • Replace ‘disabled people’ with ‘people with a disability’ and ‘disabled spaces’ with ‘accessible spaces’ throughout the Position Paper and the Strategy;
  • Look at ways to provide more public parking that is available to special user groups, including older residents;
  • Provide maps showing the location of parking areas on Council’s website in English and other languages;
  • Produce a Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan for the LGA through the Georges River Transport Strategy; and
  • Consider ways to encourage the community to adopt active lifestyles.
