Draft Interim Guidance for Non-Residential Car Parking – Consultation

Closed 12 May 2023

Opened 29 Mar 2023


As part of the implementation of the State Government’s planning reform agenda, work has progressed to develop a more consistent approach, improve outcomes, and enhance guidance relating to non-residential car parking within precincts, activity centres, industrial zones and land zoned Service Commercial across local government areas in the Perth and Peel region.

Draft guidance has been developed to support local governments in an immediate review of car parking rates in their locality. This guidance is targeted at local governments within the Perth and Peel region, however where appropriate, this guidance can also be applied to areas external to this region.

This guidance has been developed based on background research, the outcomes of a technical review and early engagement with stakeholders. Consultation is being undertaken to help with the refinement of the guidance, including the car parking rates contained in Appendix A to C of this document.
