Municipal services—resident parking permits(Question No 202)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Transport and City Services, upon notice, on 23 April 2021:

(1) When did the ACT Government make the decision to phase out resident parking permits, and what were the reasons for this decision.

(2) What was the annual revenue the Government received from the issuance of these permits before the phasing out of such permits began.

(3) How much estimated revenue has the ACT Government received from parking fees and parking fines by phasing out resident parking permits.

(4) For which areas are resident parking permits still offered, and why are these areas considered exceptional.

Mr Steel: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The ACT Government ceased issuing new residential parking permits in 2005. Since then, existing permits have been progressively phased out when redevelopment occurs. The ACT Government re-examined this position in 2015 and concluded that residential parking permit systems were still an inequitable means of rationing the limited kerbside space and are a countermeasure in encouraging sustainable travel.

(2) An accurate answer to this question is not readily available.

(3) An accurate answer to this question is not readily available.

(4) Resident parking permits are still offered for Argyle Square in Reid and Havelock House in Turner. These areas were included as part of the original resident parking permits scheme and have not yet been phased out in line with the processes outlined in (1).
