Council is preparing a new parking strategy, starting with a survey to gauge the community’s views on parking in Warrnambool.

“Car parking is something many people feel very passionate about,” Council Chief Executive Officer Andrew Mason said.

“To help inform the new parking strategy we want to gain insights from the community about where people are choosing to park, how long they are parking for and whether the arrangements we have in place are as effective as they could be.

“The survey covers eight precincts across the city: the CBD, Raglan Parade, Banyan Street, the railway station, hospital, industrial, breakwater and Lake Pertobe.

“Just one of the precincts – the CBD – has paid parking which encourages a turnover of vehicles to provide more opportunities for people in the main retail area.

“Over the past decade a number of new car parks have been established or formalised, adding to the parking available.

“These car parks include Grace Avenue, off-Kepler Street, the railway, Merri Street and Lake Pertobe. 

“Overall Council manages about 4,000 car parking spaces across the city.

“So if you’re a motorist we’re keen to hear your perspective on parking and we encourage you to have a say."
