Growth of On-Street Parking Permits

Nathan Davis's picture

Hi All,

In the recent year(s) there have many developments in my area (Richmond) have approved planning permits for for large apartment buildings (30+ SOU's) with minimal parking on-site. A recent permit has been submitted includes 50 units with 7 on site car-parks. I can see this being typical to any surrounding suburbs to the CBD within a 5km distance.

Traffics reports include studies only conducted between Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm, where most residents in the area do not have there cars located at home and the surrounding streets during the studies. Reports state there is ample on-street parking, where this is not the case over night (sometimes during the day). I sometimes find myself parking a few streets away from my house on nights after 7pm.

I am all for newer developments not having on-site caparking, where they are marketed as green developments, (including adequate bike parking and other ESD princiiples.)

Is there a need for some regulation or further consideration from council into how many parking permits will be granted to these new high-density developments to reduce the amount of parked cars in the area?

For example, if a 50 unit development is approved with no on-site carpking for residents.Council may only elect to grant the 15% of the development with on-street parking permits (larger apartments may be given priority)

This would of course need to be followed through the contract of sales with real-esate agents, clearly stating no on-street parking permits will be granted via council.

Any thoughts on the above? I would be interested to see what plans council has for the next 10 years and how they plan to combat the population growth in regards to on-street carp-parking.

In years to come these are some further strategies I would like to see;

- Introduction of smaller carapaces being implemented rather than normal allocation of carapaces.

- Reduction of crossover width from 3000mm to 2700mm to encourage more street-parking (300mm makes a big difference)

- A web portal with council for potential buys . renters to see if they can obtain a on--street permit. Rather than finding out after you have purchased a property or have started renting.

- Review of congested streets, where an additional carp-park may be allocated at the end of a street (near a giveway / stop sign) where the reduction of length in the solid white line may occur

The City of Stonnington doesn't provide any parking permits to any new apartment developments, and has been doing so since the mid 2000s.

I would always love to read information which is mentioned on the parking meter.

I have checked a lot of details about the boards which provide the complete information about the parking meters on the road. Most of the students want to get the https://studyclerk.com/pay-for-research-paper platform where pay for research papers is easily available to help out everyone for studies. I have tried the writing content which is always helpful for everyone while walking on the road or driving as well.
