Waiver of car park provision

Requirements for car parking are stipulated in Clause 52.06 of the Greater Geelong Planning Scheme.

Planning permits require a specific number of car parking spaces, depending on the intended use.

Provision of car spaces

Must be provided prior to:

  • A new use commencing or

  • A new building being occupier or

  • The floor or site area of an existing use being increased or

  • The number of patrons, seats or practitioners at an existing use being increased.

The car parking spaces required under Clause 52.06-5 must be provided on the land or as approved under Clause 52.06-3 to the satisfaction of the responsible authority.

If a schedule to the Parking Overlay or the schedule to Clause 52.06 specifies a maximum parking provisions, the maximum parking provision must not be exceeded.

If you cannot meet the car-parking requirement, you can apply for a planning permit to waiver the car-parking stating the reasons why you think this is acceptable.
