On-street Parking Plan for North Adelaide

Council sought community feedback on the best ways to manage on-street event parking around Adelaide Oval and North Adelaide.

Background

Council sought your comments to help us develop a plan to address demand for on-street parking for events at Adelaide Oval. The draft plan proposes some permanent changes to on-street parking over and above event times.

It is anticipated that a high number of spectators would like to travel to Adelaide Oval by car, increasing the demand for parking. The North Adelaide area will be an attractive solution for spectators due to the ease of access to the oval and unrestricted parking.

The purpose of the Adelaide Oval On-street Parking Plan is to manage on-street parking that will be demanded by Adelaide Oval event goers, while maintaining parking for residents, businesses and Park Lands users; and maintaining the character and amenity of North Adelaide.

  • Hi, Will Saturday afternoon sport for teams playing at the Uni Grounds be affected? I think permits for any players associated with any of the uni sporting teams are a must, finding parking is hard enough as it is without the footy on!

    Hello, Sincere apologies for the delay in answering your question. There will be an impact upon Park lands sporting participants, however Council's administration is working through the matter with the University to minimize any impacts. If you have any further questions please feel call or email; ph:8203 7032 E: AdOvalParking@adelaidecitycouncil.com Regards,
  • I'm living in the proposed two hour zone. Can I use my visitor's permits from the booklet of 25 vouchers for $32 so my visitors can stay for 2+2=4 hours instead of 2?

    softgrow asked about 6 years ago
    Sorry for the delay in responding. You are correct, a visitor parking permit would allow for a person to stay for 4 hours, instead of 2 hours within the proposed 2 hour parking zone.
  • Does a "Hour limit Control Parking" mean clients are now paying to park in that area whether it is 1, 2 or 3 hour park?

    anonymous asked about 6 years ago
    Hi, thank you for your question. The proposed parking controls do not include any additional areas with ticket machines. Strategy 4 would involve temporary closure and payment for parking on part of War Memorial Drive for large events only. We hope this clarifies this point for you, and please contact us again if you have any further questions.
  • The proposals are not really properly described as proposals for event parking at all because they are proposed to apply all of the time. In this sense the letter you have sent for consultation is misleading - it implies that it is about event parking. Many people reading the heading will not realise this is untrue. What will council do to fix this so that the consultation is meaningful?

    anonymous asked about 6 years ago
    Hi, we apologise for any misunderstanding around the parking controls; you make a good point and we will update online materials and the information event materials to be clearer. Further information you may find helpful – We investigated and considered at great length signs applying to "Event Days" only (similar to those around AAMI Stadium), but believe that the large range and frequency of events at the Oval would make the temporary controls confusing, particularly for the large range and catchment of visitors to the area, including patients to the hospitals. Thanks for your feedback.
  • Have you taken into account the existing sporting bodies who use the Parklands (football, lacrosse, archery, soccer, exercise groups etc) During the winter season it can be extremely difficult to find a park on Saturday afternoons as all these sports take place then.

    Hi, thanks for your question. We are currently working with the Adelaide University Sports Association, Tennis SA, Next Generation and War Memorial Drive Tennis Club to minimise impacts and find a workable solution for sporting groups that currently use Park Lands around the Oval. Any additional ideas or feedback you have on the plan would be appreciated.
  • Will the proposed modifications to existing parking controls also include Permit zones, specifically Residential Permit zones?

    mb5006 asked about 6 years ago
    Hi, thanks for your question. The Residential Parking zones in operation ‘all of the time’ will remain as they are. Under Strategies 2 and 3 the residential zones in operation ‘part of the time’ could be affected some of the time – you can see the details here and the specific streets affected. If you would like to talk it through please contact Trudy Angrave on 8203 7032 or pop into one of our information sessions: North Adelaide Community Centre and Library, 176 Tynte Street, North Adelaide. Monday 22 July 2013 -2pm - 4pm or Wednesday 24 July 2013 -5pm - 7pm
  • has council addressed which North Adelaide streets will be used to access car parking in parklands around Adelaide Oval OR will North Adelaide in particular Palmer Place,Brougham Place, Jeffcott St and O'connell St become Gridlocked as does happen when Cricket [Tests] or concerts are held at Adelaide Oval

    Hi, thanks for your question. The Adelaide Stadium Management Authority is currently preparing draft plans to appropriately manage traffic before, during and after Oval events. This includes internal car park management, entry/exit movements, pick-up and drop-off points and traffic circulation on the surrounding road network. Council will be providing advice and feedback to the Authority on these plans with the intention to create a safe environment and limit traffic impact. We anticipate that the way in which car parking on the northern hill and under the Stadium is allocated will reduce impacts in the streets immediately north of the Oval. We will encourage people to use Public Transport and work with the State Government to make this as convenient an option as possible. Despite this, some patrons will still want to park in the 22,000 on-street spaces in North Adelaide and we look how best to accommodate the parking needs of all who use the area around the Oval, including nearby workers and residents. If you would like to discuss it in more detail please come to one of our information sessions at the North Adelaide Community Centre and Library, 176 Tynte Street, North Adelaide. Monday 22 July 2013 -2pm - 4pm or Wednesday 24 July 2013 -5pm - 7pm - drop in at any time during the session.
  • Am I correct in reading the information that you are proposing making any changes effective permanently? For example, Strategy 2 proposing 2 hour parking controls within 1.25km of the Oval. I am not sure I understand the sentence at the bottom of the page which starts "Permanent, rather than temporary event-day controls have been recommended.....". Please clarify what this means exactly.

    anonymous asked about 6 years ago
    Thanks for your question, you raise an important point. Yes, you are correct; Strategies 2 and 3 are proposed to be permanent, but reviewed periodically once in operation. For your information, temporary parking signs for "Event Days" only (similar to those around AAMI Stadium) have been investigated and considered at great length. The large range and frequency of events at the Oval would make the temporary controls confusing, particularly for the large range and catchment of visitors to the area, including patients to the hospitals. Should you wish to speak with someone in more detail you are welcome to attend one the of the 'open house' information sessions. (refer to Key Dates on this page) I hope this helps you to better understand the proposed strategies and we look forward to your feedback. Many thanks for your question.
