Where does pay parking money go?

Pay parking is a parking management initiative designed to improve availability of car parking spaces.

It has generated more than $11 million (after operating costs) over the last four financial years to 30 June 2020, an average of $2.8 million a year.   

The amounts received fluctuate from year to year depending on demand and as Council makes adjustments to parking in response to local needs.  COVID-19 has had a negative impact on pay parking revenue.

Pay parking is located on:

  • Council-owned land and roads
  • Crown land owned by the State Government.
