Traffic and Parking

The Doncaster Hill Parking Precinct Plan establishes the most efficient way for future expected car parking demands to be accommodated within Doncaster Hill, including the stipulation of car parking requirements for key land uses within the Hill.

The Doncaster Hill Parking Precinct Plan refers to the findings of the Doncaster Hill Parking Study and the 'Doncaster Hill Parking Study - Technical Report' which has assessed the expected future car parking requirements of Doncaster Hill and the way in which these requirements can most effectively be managed.

Parking and Traffic Management 

GTA Consultants, on behalf of Manningham Council, undertook a review of parking and traffic management in Doncaster Hill in 2010/11 to identify potential impacts on the surrounding road network due to current and future development.

Since 2002 a number of significant developments have been constructed, and with a range of other exciting projects planned for the Hill, it is anticipated that further development will occur progressively over the next ten to 20 years.

Land use forecasts were developed and informed the modelling work undertaken, in line with the Victorian Integrated Transport Model (VITM). An audit of car parking utilisation at completed developments and pedestrian counts was  undertaken to assist with planning for future parking in the local road network.

Council contines to proactively engage with local developers to manage construction worker parking in and around development sites to ensure that the amenity of local streets is maintained during construction works. 

Future Transport Infrastructure

Further work was undertaken to assess the viability of proposed transport infrastructure included in the Doncaster Hill Development Contributions Plan 2005 (DCP). A range of new infrastructure has been recommended, based on future development forecasts. These recommendations will be incorporated into a review of the DCP, being undertaken in 2018.
