The Box Hill Transit City Activity Centre Structure Plan (the Box Hill Structure Plan), adopted by Council in June 2007, is Whitehorse City Council’s primary guiding document for future development in the Box Hill Central Activities Area.
The Box Hill Structure Plan promotes the use of sustainable transport and more effective use of existing car parking. It also recommends that further investigation be undertaken in relation to car parking. Whitehorse City Council has therefore engaged consultants to complete a comprehensive study of car parking within the Box Hill Central Activities Area and, based on these findings, prepare a car parking strategy for the centre.
Council adopted the Box Hill Central Activities Area Car Parking Strategy (6.78MB) at its meeting of 23 June 2014. At this meeting Council considered the feedback received during the consultation period held in March/April 2014, and thanked submitters for their input. The aim of the project was to study and respond to matters associated with car parking. This included identifying existing and potential future car parking availability, and recommending actions to address any constraints and shortfalls, balanced with broader objectives of sustainability, community enhancement and economic vitality.
The Box Hill Car Parking Strategy will work in conjunction with the existing Box Hill Structure Plan. The Box Hill Car Parking Strategy makes recommendations about providing and managing car parking for each of the precincts identified within the Box Hill CAA.
Some of the key findings of the study are as follows:
Existing car parking supply
Meeting car parking needs into the future
The project has made 38 recomendations relating to:
Council will now seek an amendment to the Whitehorse Planning Scheme to introduce new car parking requirements by development type for new development proposals within the Box Hill Central Activities Area. For more details about the amendment, please refer to Amendment C158.
