The Moorabool Car Parking Study is looking at all aspects of car parking across the Shire
What the community told us in April and May 2021:
The majority of feedback from the online consultation related to the Bacchus Marsh area (95%), and was largely within the six identified precincts, confirming the initial work undertaken in identifying key areas of car parking issues. In particular, the area around Bacchus Marsh Primary School received the most comments from residents, employees and parents.
Nearly 30% of the comments related to improvements to the pedestrian environment through safety and improved connections across roads.
What the study has found so far:
Consultants engaged to review the parking management in the town centres have found that access to parking and support for small businesses can be improved by the following actions:
Surveys were undertaken on a Friday and Saturday in both towns, focusing on the town centres and some nearby locations like schools and hospitals where parking needs are highest
Shoppers in the town centre were asked to complete a survey about the town centres and their experience, including their transport mode and parking
