    1.11.1 PETITION REGARDING THE RESIDENTIAL

    PARKING PERMIT SCHEMEAuthor: Bailey Byrnes - Transport Planning Team Leader, City Development

    Ward: All

    Previous ItemsCouncil on 9 May 2016 (Item 4.1 - Residential Parking Permit Policy 2016-2020)

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    A petition with 67 signatures has been received in relation to the Residential ParkingPermit Scheme and the implementation of parking restrictions in residential streets.The petition was received on 25 May 2016 after the adoption of the ResidentialParking Permit Policy 2016-2020 on 9 May 2016.

    The petition prayer is as follows:

    Residents of Banyule request that Banyule City Council and its Transport PlanningStaff:

    1. Retain the relative proximity to the relevant residential address for residentialparking permits

    2. Use very small street based zones for parking permits (recognising that someparking will still be allowed throughout all zones depending on the time-limitsthat apply and that coded zones can still be used if street names on permitsare an issue for stick-on permits)

    3. Improve consultation with residents over parking permits by holding local Q andA meetings in advance of any proposed permit scheme

    4. Consider a greater variety of solutions to residential parking overlay, bypossible application of more varied different time limits and exclusion times,which place less inconvenience on residents and visitors but still solve theproblems that occur at peak periods.

    The recently adopted Residential Parking Permit Policy 2016-2020 reflectedcommunity desire for smaller parking permit areas, and introduced conditionsrequiring permits to only be used to visit the residence of issue. Consultationapproaches will be considered as part of a future parking restriction frameworkcurrently in development.

    RECOMMENDATION

    That Council receives and notes the petition.

    1.1

    DISCUSSION

    The Banyule Resident Parking Permit Policy 2016-2020 was adopted by Council on9 May 2016. The adopted policy introduced a parking permit area system, withpermit holders being allowed to park within a relevant permit area. The size of thepermit areas were refined and reduced in size following community feedback duringthe consultation period.

    The policy also introduced a proximity condition, requiring permits only be used toattend the residence identified in the permit application, and not to be used to visitany other property or for any other means, even if it is within the permit areaspecified. This was in response to concerns raised by the community regarding thepotential for misuse of parking permits around key destinations such as activitycentres and train stations.

    Parking in residential areas and surrounding activity centres is guided by the BanyuleIntegrated Transport Plan 2015-2035 and the Banyule Activity Centre Car ParkingPolicy and Strategy. These provide direction and an overall framework for theconsideration of parking restrictions in residential areas.

    In relation to item 4 of the petition prayer, while a greater variety of options could beconsidered when investigating parking options in residential streets a consistentapproach is used in terms of the type and duration of restrictions from one street tothe next. While each location and situation can be different, a consistent approachleads to better compliance by road users and is easier to enforce.

    Presenting residents with a greater variety of options can present challenges inobtaining a majority agreement from affected properties in the introduction of parkingrestrictions. When a number of options are presented, the majority response may bein favour of parking restrictions; however there is often no clear consensus on thetype of restrictions to be installed. As such, only one or two types of restrictions arepresented during the consultation process.

    Respondents are welcomed and encouraged to provide comments to proposedchanges to parking restrictions during the consultation phase. Where situationsrequire a more tailored approach, feedback obtained through the consultationprocess can guide and influence the parking restrictions or measures that may beintroduced. Where feedback on a particular matter is consistently raised, for examplein relation to the duration of the parking restrictions, the final proposal can be alteredto align with these suggestions.

    Issues relating to consultation will be considered as in the future formalisation theparking restriction process. This will provide greater clarity for the community onwhere parking restrictions may be considered and the consultation procedure. It isanticipated this will be presented to Council for consideration and adoption later inthe year.
