Project Overview

The City of Holdfast Bay is investigating modifications to on-street parking arrangements on King Street and Alfreda Street, Brighton, between the Esplanade and The Crescent.

This investigation is in response to reports of access, particularly for emergency vehicles becoming obstructed by on-street parking. These streets have a history of access and parking concerns which this review is approaching in a consistent manner.

The objectives of the review and the proposed treatment concepts are to:
  • ensure through-access is maintained, particularly for emergency services
  • preserve as much on-street parking capacity as practical
  • provide a solution that is fair to residents on both sides of the streets

Three treatment concepts are provided through the consultation for residents to select their preferred option and provide feedback.

The City of Holdfast Bay is committed to consulting with residents and key stakeholders to ensure all perspectives are considered as part of this investigation.

This engagement is open until 30 May 2024.

This scheme seeks to ensure the maximum number of on-street parking opportunities are preserved, within the Australian Road Rules.

A practical maximum on-street capacity has been achieved, with 67 potential spaces available on King Street, and 60 potential spaces on Alfreda Street

This scheme was prepared in response to community concerns regarding access to driveways when vehicles are parked in close proximity.

This scheme necessitates a reduction in potential on-street parking locations, with 22 spaces lost from King Street, for a total of 45 spaces available, and 29 spaces lost from Alfreda Street, for a total of 31 available.

The concept can be viewed here:

This scheme takes into account feedback provided by individual residents and seeks to balance access concerns with preserving the majority of parking opportunities and a focus on keeping intersection sight lines clear.

This scheme results in the loss of some parking opportunities as a result, with 2 potential on-street parking opportunities lost from King Street, for a total of 65, and 9 lost from Alfreda Street, for a total of 51.
