Gillies Street Community Parking and Access

Through a community request to introduce parking restrictions, Council has heard there is high parking pressure for residents and visitors in Gillies Street, Fairfield, between Railway Place and Heidelberg Road.

In response, Council started collecting data and writing to residents to ask about their car parking challenges, needs and ideas. Thank you to everyone who got in touch or sent in surveys.

You can read more about the steps involved in the parking change request document and also read the letter to the residents that was distributed on 9 December 2020.

Council is proposing a change to reduce parking pressure and are seeking community feedback on the proposed changes.

Feedback during step 1 of the parking change process returned varied views on how best to handle the challenges observed for Gillies Street. This feedback was used to inform the proposed change. 

To help manage parking and access in Gillies Street Fairfield, Council is proposing that unrestricted parking on the Eastern side of the road is changed to 2P during the day (from 8am to 6pm). This is shown in the map below

Existing conditions for certain areas will remain, including:
  • Keeping the unrestricted parking on the Western side at all times, and
  • for all areas to continue to be unrestricted overnight from 6pm to 8am. 
  • Keeping existing restricted areas the same. 
This would prevent long stay commuters parking on the Eastern side of the street. It would also reduce parking pressure overall in the street because some residents that are eligible for permits would start to use the East side - easing pressure on the West. 

Please complete this short survey. We would appreciate any feedback you have on this proposal.
