North Adelaide parking changes

North Adelaide Parking Review

Following the assessment of all feedback submitted since the North Adelaide Parking Trial began, on 24th September 2019 Council approved a Motion on Notice* to:

  •  Reinstate the bays which were unrestricted and 10P parking zones prior to 1 July 2019 adjacent to the Parklands (approximately 340 parking spaces as shown on this map) as a priority;
  • Advise stakeholders to this effect and provide them with a 28-day period to submit feedback in relation to the current parking controls within their street;
  • Continues to support the relaxed Residential Parking Permit Criteria as detailed in The Committee meeting held on 5 March 2019;
  • Honour the 12 month Trial Parking Permits already issued to residents, however cease issuing any further Trial Permits.

*A Motion on Notice is a request made by a Councillor for an issue to be discussed at a Council Meeting and for a decision to be made. You can read the complete Motion on Notice from Council’s meeting of the 24th September (item 15.1).

Timeframe and what this means for you:

  • Unrestricted and 10P parking zones adjacent to the Park Lands zones will begin to be reinstated as a priority from Friday 27 September, and will take approximately two weeks to complete;
  • The current parking controls aside from those adjacent to Park Lands will remain in place, while further consultation is undertaken. A 28-day consultation period to submit feedback in relation to the current parking controls within your street was undertaken from Monday 21 October until Monday 18 November.
  • Following the 28-day consultation period, we are now giving due consideration to all feedback submitted. Should feedback request parking changes within a specific street, it will be individually assessed to ensure a practical balance between time-limited and unrestricted parking, and to address the overarching parking requirements of the community. Localised consultation may be undertaken to confirm community support should conflicting views to on-street parking be received.

North Adelaide parking permit trial - discontinued

The North Adelaide Parking Permit Trial has been discontinued due to a Council decision on 24 September 2019.

The 12-month Trial Parking Permits which have already been issued will continue to be valid until 30 June, 2020; however, they will not be renewed after this date and no further Trial Parking Permits will be issued.

A 28-day consultation period to submit feedback in relation to the current parking controls within your street was held from Monday 21 October until Monday 18 November.

Following this consultation period, each street is now being individually assessed to ensure a practical balance between time-limited and unrestricted parking, and to address the overarching parking requirements of the community. Localised consultation may be undertaken to confirm community support should conflicting views to on-street parking be received.
