Metropolitan Adelaide Car Parking Review

The State Government has initiated a wholesale review of car parking in local streets across metropolitan Adelaide and is working closely with local councils to identify the causes of any parking problems and consider potential solutions.

We know there are many different factors which can result in parking problems on local streets. Hearing the views and experiences of local residents across the metropolitan area is a valuable part of this initiative.

What input was sought?

Feedback from local residents across the Adelaide metropolitan area was sought in the following areas:

  • experience of parking in your local streets
  • your own household’s car use and needs
  • improvements to make parking better around your home and your neighbourhood.

Community feedback was obtained via a ‘Your Say’ survey which ran for four weeks from 19 January to 16 February 2018 with 840 submissions received. Two community focus groups and a Car Parking Summit, attended by over 60 key stakeholders, was also held at the Adelaide Convention Centre in April 2018.

What were the results?

The feedback received clearly reflected the multi-dimensional nature of our streets with amenity, traffic, parking, walking, cycling and play amongst the key considerations.

A summary of what was heard (PDF, 724 KB) from these engagement processes is available here and has also been published on the ‘YourSay’ website.

This information will help us work with councils to consider potential solutions to parking problems and is being incorporated into the Integrated Movement Systems Discussion Paper scheduled for release in mid-2018.
