Parking provision, regulation, and pricing needs to be balanced to ensure areas are accessible, affordable, and supply meets demand. It is also important for managing congestion, local amenity, safety, and promoting use or connection to public transport.
With population growth and development, technology improvements, and changing mobility trends like rideshare, RACQ encourages Councils to continually review on-street parking allocations to ensure a correct balance of parking, time limits and prices that meets the needs of all users. This can include utilising technology, such as in-ground sensors, to enable motorists to find the closest available on-street parking bay and minimise congestion and circling.
