The Werribee City Centre Parking Strategy was officially adopted by Wyndham City Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 25 June 2019.
The Parking Strategy was developed using detailed research and traffic analysis and informed by feedback from customers, residents, business owners, workers and other stakeholders.
The Parking Strategy’s actions will be rolled out commencing in 2019/20. They are designed to make parking more user-friendly, bring more people to the City Centre and allow them to stay longer, which is good for customers, businesses and the local economy.
Highlights of the Strategy include:
- The delivery of 467 additional public parking spaces;
- Longer time limits;
- Maintaining free on-street parking and providing more options for long-stay parking;
- The use of Smart Cities technology, such as signage showing how many spaces are available at carparks and wayfinding signage within multi-story carparks;
- Replacing the all-day paid business parking permit system with a more flexible system available to customers and workers in Premium Off-Street Parking Facilities. It will include free short-term parking for up to three hours and pay-per-use for longer-stay parking. The system will be introduced after the completion of the carpark within the Hunter Werribee development on the corner of Synnot St and Duncans Rd.
