The health and wellbeing of the Gold Coast community, our customers and City employees is our first priority.
The City is receiving advice from the Federal Government and Queensland Health on a daily basis to inform our response to the Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in the city.
From Saturday 28 March, in an effort to support local business and employees, the City will switch off all its on-street and off-street parking meters city-wide.
The rate for Bruce Bishop and Jubilee carparks will be capped at $5 per day.
Parking officers have been instructed not to issue fines for parking offences across the city except in circumstances where illegal parking is causing a safety risk or preventing the free-flow of traffic.

As part of our commitment to manage congestion we're implementing no stopping areas during peak times on key road corridors to improve traffic flows.
Parking restrictions (e.g. timed parking) exist to ensure that traffic flows smoothly in and around the city; clearways, school and bus zones are kept safe and clear; residents can park locally; and that public and business areas remain accessible to all.

The City Parking Plan addresses the issues of keeping our city moving, managing parking, to increase availability while improving customer service and boosting economic activity. Find out about some of the City's initiatives:
An increased number of traffic areas are now in place around the city to manage overflow parking in residential streets.
The City has undertaken parking studies and stakeholder consultation in some local areas to better understand current parking habits and future requirements. The aim of the changes is to increase vehicle turnover and accessibility within the centres to ensure customers and visitors find it easier to park.
Changes to the way you pay for parking at Home of the Arts (HOTA) Precinct (Evandale) from 4 December 2017.
