Consultation for proposed regulated parking in Bilinga

This consultation has now closed and this page has been retained for your information.


Regulated parking is proposed for some residential streets in Bilinga. This is to address the issue that Gold Coast airport patrons are parking in residential streets for long periods of time.

Background

Since early 2013 when parking issues were raised at a Bilinga Neighbourhood Watch meeting, a working group was formed to include City of Gold Coast officers and Cr Chris Robbins as well as several community members to look at solutions to address community needs around parking issues.

During April 2013 to May 2013 a survey was distributed by the Bilinga Neighbourhood Watch to a cross-section of residents to better understand community opinions and solutions.

This survey received a 41 per cent response rate with 77 percent of respondents in support of four hour parking regulations in the Bilinga area. 68 percent of respondents wanted restrictions to apply from Monday to Saturday. 

The preference of hours were as follows: 45 per cent of people preferred regulated hours to be from 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday; while 23 per cent preferred 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 1pm on Saturday.

It was proposed that parking regulations be put in place for all streets south of Gibson Street, north of Musgrave Street and between the western side of Golden Four Drive and the eastern side of Pacific Parade.
