Parking Review: Have your say

12 June, 2014

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has established a Brisbane Parking Taskforce to undertake a review of Council’s parking policies and practices. The Taskforce will be led by the Deputy Mayor and Chairman of Council’s Infrastructure Committee, Cr Adrian Schrinner.

The review will provide recommendations aimed at improving Council’s management of parking across the city to ensure the best use of available kerbside space.

Like all large and growing cities, kerbside space in Brisbane is a finite resource and demand for on-street parking often massively exceeds available space.

This is especially the case in areas such as the CBD, streets surrounding sporting and entertainment venues, public transport hubs, retail centres, schools, hospitals and locations with high residential or employment concentrations.

Parking availability is important to the economy of Brisbane, in particular for small businesses which often rely on a steady turnover of on-street parking.

Where demand exceeds available space, regulation in some form is required to ensure fair and reasonable access for all to this scarce resource.

Getting the balance right is a complex matter and it's now time for a comprehensive review.

In particular, Council is keen to investigate ways of improving parking management through innovation and the use of new technology.

Council understands that parking is an important issue for residents and business, and you are encouraged to submit your feedback for consideration as part of this review by 11 July 2014.

There are several ways you can have your say:
• online submission at www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/parking
• by mail to:
Brisbane City Council
GPO Box 1434
Brisbane Qld 4001
• via email at parkingtaskforce@brisbane.qld.gov.au
The Taskforce’s considerations will include, but not be limited to, the following issues:
• parking meter numbers, locations, charges and operating hours;
• principles guiding the imposition of various time limits at regulated and metered parking sites;
• policies for parking in the vicinity of schools;
• enforcement policies and procedures;
• parking fine levels and the use of associated revenue;
• fixed parking signage and other means of informing motorists of parking restrictions;
• Council’s residential parking permit scheme;
• opportunities for improving parking management through innovation and technology;
• the appropriateness of the current use of CBD and inner city kerbside space, and;
• where appropriate, the Taskforce should consider the parking policies and practices of other comparable cities.
