Fee reversal - why did Council change the on-street parking fees back to 2018-2019 rates?

The increase of fees affected capped on-street all-day, 3-hour and 4-hour parking in Bellerine Street, Brougham St, Eastern Beach, Western Beach and Ritchie Boulevard.

At the 4 July 2019 Special Meeting, Council voted to revert fees not identified in the Budget for capped on-street all-day, 3-hour and 4-hour parking in the Geelong CBD to 2018-2019 levels. These fees were reverted to 2018-2019 rates as the process did not communicate the change to the Council or community and those members of the community who use on-street all-day provide for adequate public consultation.

  • Capped all-day on-street parking from $13 back to $5.80
  • 3-hour parking capped from $7 back to $5.80
  • 4-hour parking capped from $8 back to $3.50 and
  • 4-hour parking capped (high occupancy) from $9 back to $5.80.
