Commercial and Industrial Parking

Council has the authority to determine where vehicles are permitted to park and what restrictions are to apply on Council-controlled roads. Council can also make available disabled parking spaces and provide for loading, bus and taxi zones.

Changes to these zones are made in consultation with the Department of Transport and Main Roads, surrounding businesses and other service providers.

Council will not erect parking signs or paint marked parking bays for a single business but may as part of an area-wide strategy.

As businesses change in an area, so may the parking requirements. As a result, Council may act on requests to change on-street parking arrangements.

While council officers enforce parking restrictions, only the CBD is regularly patrolled. The police are also able to enforce parking, but they will usually only take action where the situation is considered potentially dangerous.

Commercial businesses can apply for Commercial Vehicle Permit through council.
