Victoria reviews car parking planning provisions

Victoria’s Department of Planning and Community
Development (DPCD) has established the Car Parking Advisory Committee 2011 to
review proposed changes to car parking provisions in the Victorian Planning Provisions
and planning schemes.

According to the Property Council of Australia, the
proposed changes made by the DPCD are based on the recommendations of a final
report compiled in January 2008 by a separate advisory committee following an
enquiry into the existing car parking provisions.

The review is considering reducing the legal number of
spaces per dwelling from two to zero in dozens of activity zones of Melbourne,
as well as halving car park requirements in many residential, entertainment and
business centres outside those zones. claims that the review’s aims are to
reduce reliance on cars and encourage other ways of getting around, such as
public transport and bicycles, and comes as Melbourne’s population continues to
increase rapidly.

The DPCD has made the 2008 advisory committee report
and the draft proposed provisions available on its website which you can view here.
