South Hobart Parking Review


Thank you for your ongoing interest in this project.

A letter will be delivered to local impacted residents on Friday 8 May 2020.

Based on feedback received the majority of residents were happy with the current parking arrangements but some were experiencing issues finding parking close to home. With this in mind the City of Hobart has decided to install new residential parking permit zones or increase the length of existing residential parking permit zones in the following areas:

These changes convert unrestricted parking to 2P residential zones and allow vehicles with a permit to park longer than the posted 2 hour parking limit. Permits can be issued to residents of the streets that qualify for a permit. Please see the attached 'Residential Parking Scheme' for more information.

For any queries please feel free to contact Jason McLeod, details available on the Who's Listening tab.


The survey for this project has been extended to Friday 20 December 2019


The City of Hobart has received a number of requests recently for an increase in residential parking permit zones throughout South Hobart.

There are a range of reasons for these requests but before making a decision on what sort of parking controls are most suitable, we are seeking information regarding personal experience from the local residents.

The City is surveying all residential properties from Gore Street to McRobies Road/Wellesley Park between the Hobart Rivulet and Davey Street/Huon Road. If you received a letter about parking requirements in South Hobart, then your street is being surveyed. Please take the survey below and let the City know your thoughts on this issue.

The City of Hobart will only make changes to parking where a consensus has been formed.

Get involved and have your say by completing the survey below.

Feedback for this project will close at 5 pm on 13 December 2019.

    Dear South Hobart Residents

    REVIEW OF PARKING REQUIREMENTS – South Hobart

    The City has received a number of requests for the installation of additional resident parking permit zones in various streets across South Hobart.

    It is the City’s understanding that the reasons for these requests range from the lack of private off street parking, lack of on street parking for visitors and tradespeople, the inability to exit property in a convenient manner or simply the dislike of commuter parking fronting residential properties.

    Before making a decision on what sort of parking control is most suitable (either a resident permit parking zone, a time limited zone or no changes at all) the City is seeking your opinion to understand the parking issues experienced in your street.

    The City will be surveying all residential properties from Gore Street to McRobies Road/Wellesley Park between the Hobart Rivulet and Davey Street/Huon Road. If you have received this letter then your street is being surveyed.

    A resident parking permit zone allows residents (who qualify for resident parking and are happy to pay $50 per year for a permit) to find parking closer to home. Non‑residents would be able to park for a maximum of 2 hours during business hours, Monday to Friday. Resident parking permit zones are generally limited in size to accommodate only the number of vehicles requiring permits in a street.

    It is important to note that the City:

    • will only make changes to residential parking if the majority of residents that reside in the street agree to see changes;
    • will only install the amount of residential parking required and cannot promise to install a zone fronting individual properties that have said yes to the zone;
    • is not seeking to place restrictions in entire streets or down the entire side of roads;
    • when evaluating the results, will assume that residents that have not filled in a survey are happy with the current parking arrangements.

    If you would like to discuss this matter further please contact Jason McLeod.
