Payment in Lieu of Parking Plan

Payment in lieu of parking (also called ‘cash-in-lieu’) is an option available for non-residential development proposals where there is a parking shortfall to the City’s minimum non-residential car parking requirements of at least two car bays.

The City can use the funds generated from these payments to construct public car parking bays in a particular area, or to spend the funds on other transport-related infrastructure (for example, cycling or pedestrian paths).

The Payment in Lieu of Parking Plan was approved by Council at its Ordinary Council meeting on 31 October 2023. The Plan outlines the purposes for which payment in lieu of car parking will be used and how money collected will be administered. The Plan has effect for 10 years.
