We know parking is important.

People with cars want to be able to park near their home, as well as visitors, carers, service providers and tradespeople.

There are often not enough on-street spaces for everyone who’d like them. This is when we need to manage parking so that spaces are available for those who need them most.

Our Resident Parking Permit Policy outlines who can get parking permits. It aims to respond to the needs of our diverse and changing community and ensure fair distribution of parking permits throughout Darebin, particularly where there is a high need. It's not about determining which streets should have parking restrictions, or how long restrictions should be.

We’ve developed four options we think could improve the current policy. These range from small adjustments to big changes.

Tell us what you think about the options and if there are other parking permit needs in the community. We also want to know what other ideas you may have.

Have your say by taking the survey below or coming along to a drop-in session.
