Why do we need an On-street Event Parking Plan?
It is anticipated that a high number of spectators will want to travel to Adelaide Oval by car.
Spectators will naturally seek to park as close to Adelaide Oval as possible (within a 20 minute walk of the Oval). This means existing public parking within the Adelaide CBD, Park Lands and North Adelaide will be potential parking locations.
At present the majority of existing on-street parking in North Adelaide is free and generally unrestricted at the following times:
- Mondays to Fridays after 6pm
- Saturdays after 12 noon
- Sundays all day
The times when parking is free and unrestricted are also the times most heavily attended events at Adelaide Oval are likely to occur.
On-street parking in North Adelaide is likely to be an attractive solution for spectators, particularly given parking in the CBD is generally in parking stations and subject to a cost.
Therefore proposed parking management strategies for on-street parking in North Adelaide and the Park Lands are required to minimise impact for event goers, nearby residents and businesses.
What happens to my feedback?
Council will consider all comments received and review the strategies taking your feedback into account. The revised strategies will then be considered further by Council and, following endorsement, the new measures will be introduced between October 2013 and February 2014.
How do I know my feedback has been received?
All feedback forms, submissions or correspondence will be acknowledged either by email or in writing. A copy of the final report and consultation outcomes will be made available on our web site.
