The City of Greater Geelong is seeking
feedback from business owners, managers, shoppers and residents about public parking
conditions on Pakington Street in Geelong West.
Local business owners and managers are
invited to attend two workshops on public parking issues and needs and community members can submit their feedback using a map on the Have Your Say page.
The feedback will be used to inform the development of a Public Parking Plan
for the much-loved commercial strip.
The Final Pakington Street and Gordon Avenue Urban
Design Framework (UDF),
which was partially endorsed in December 2021, includes an action to prepare a Public
Parking Plan for Pakington Street North and Heritage Core Precincts.
Parking Plan analyses the parking conditions and needs of an area and can
provide the basis for a Parking Overlay or other appropriate implementation
mechanisms to manage parking in a precinct.
The scope of the Parking Plan study includes existing
public parking spaces servicing businesses along Pakington Street (including
public parking facilities behind Pakington Street businesses).
The scope of the Parking Plan study does
the provision of public parking spaces in residential areas (this
will be addressed in future studies)
the provision of private parking facilities
additional public parking spaces (this will be
addressed in future studies).
Feedback closes on Monday 28 March 2022. For
more information visit Have Your Say.
