West Perth parking rules set to change

NEW parking design rules will be applied to developments in West Perth from July 16.

Officially adopted in June, the new Perth Parking Policy will replace the requirement for a minimum number of parking bays in non-residential developments with a maximum parking restriction.

Developers will now be allowed to provide 200 bays per hectare. If the developer opts to integrate access, for example through sharing a driveway with a neighbour, the maximum increases to 300.

A maximum of 300 bays is also allowed if access to the parking area is separated from pedestrian access areas.

The policy governs all parking in the Perth City Council area with the exception of Crawley.

Existing parking bays in West Perth non-residential developments already draw a licence fee of $70 per bay.

The new policy will come into effect in the East Perth Redevelopment Authority area from 2001.

The council will also have broader access to the parking management fund which holds the monies made from the council’s parking operations.

Before the Parking Management Act was gazetted in 1999, the council could only use the funds to maintain existing parking facilities or use build new parking. Now it can put the money towards any project.
