Why is that councils are all the time now approving planning developments without the required car parking spaces, like in this case waiving of the car parking space. Parking in any area of the Monash council is becoming a night mare with more and more car park being utilised for other purpose or completely taken off. More developments nowadays are being approved by this council with no thought of car parking spaces.

Hi Shantha,

Thank you for your enquiry.

A developer can apply for a permit to include a waiver of car parking requirements. I notice that quite often, Council receives a request from the developer to waive some or all of the car parking requirements.

However, just because that is what is applied for, that doesn’t mean Council will necessarily approve that. In some circumstances we may approve the permit but ask for the full complement of car parking, or refuse the permit altogether.

In most cases, the difficulty with parking comes from sites where the car parking quotas have actually been met, but users choose to park on the street instead, or have more cars than what is provided on site and this causes the congestion.

With a 2 bedroom house needing one space and a 3+ bedroom only needing two spaces, there are many occasions where the correct amount is woefully inadequate particularly when you start to look at larger multi-unit developments.

Council has no opportunity to impose greater car parking requirements than those quotas mentioned above, which are set by the state government.

I share your concerns around what the increase in development has meant for road safety, congestion and ease of parking, and I have been working with Council on initiatives that seek to increase ease of movement around the city and encourage more investment in public transport.

Kind Regards
