Parking

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

During recovery from the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, Council is regularly monitoring parking and making changes to suit businesses. 

Recent changes include an extension of the Free Parking Trial on Lonsdale Street, Dandenong until the end of June 2021. 

Other changes include the installation of additional pick up and drop off parking spaces around takeaway food businesses, and extension of parking restrictions from 1P to 2P outside businesses where shopping is taking longer due to social distancing requirements. 

If you have suggestions for changes to parking restrictions that you feel would benefit your business, please contact us

Parking information

Council manages street parking and also owns and operates a number of car parks across the municipality, including four multi-level car parks.

Parking signs in each location tell you if there is a time limit and if payment of a fee is required. The word ’ticket’ on a parking sign indicates that you must buy a ticket to park in that area, and display it clearly on your dashboard. 

Fee payment is only required at certain times of day, and in some cases, only on certain days of the week.

Please take note of the parking limit signs and fees across the city.

In Springvale, street parking is free but there is cheap parking at the 8 Balmoral Multi-Deck car park. There are also a number of privately owned carparks in the Springvale Activity centre where a fee is applied.

For multi-deck options in Springvale, visit the 'number 8' Balmoral Avenue multi-deck car park to read about fees. Multi-deck car parks page

Noble Park Central Parking

In Noble Park it is free to park in Council car parks and on streets.

  • Activity Centre Parking – Short term

  • For street parking, signs are regularly along the length of street. Parking ticket machines in Dandenong also display restrictions and parking fees. 

  • Please note parking will be free until 30 June 2021 on Lonsdale Street (East and West sides) between Clow Street and Foster Street. Time restrictions still apply.

    Remember, even if you keep buying parking tickets, you are not allowed to remain parked longer than the time limit indicated on the signs. For example 1P means parking is allowed for up to 1 hour.

    On-street time restrictions vary from 15 minutes to two hours. Two hour on-street restrictions will generally be on the edge of the activity centres. If you need to be closer to a city centre and require more than one hour, you are encouraged to use an off-street car park. Off street parking fees are also lower than for on-street.


    Activity Centre Parking – Long Term

    There are large signs at the entrances to every off-street car park indicating if fees apply and time restrictions applying to that car park.

    Please note: tickets purchased in car parks are not valid for parking on the street.

Dandenong Civic Centre Basement car park

The Dandenong Civic Centre, located at 225 Lonsdale Street Dandenong, has a basement car park which is a public parking space. The basement car park is used to meet the needs of:

  • customers and visitors to the Civic Centre, including those with disabilities
  • Contractors (trades) undertaking work within the building
  • Deliveries/collections to/from the building
  • Councillors attending to their duties

The car park is open every day during library hours and has a one hour time limit for visitors. Parking in this car park is free.

To meet the needs of the broad range of users, there are a number of bays within the car park that are reserved for particular types of vehicles only. Those bays are set aside for use by trades and contractors performing works at the Civic Centre, councillors and people with disability access permits. Penalties apply for parking in those bays without proper authorisation.

The basement car park can be accessed via Dunbar Lane off Thomas Street, or via Kinsgbury Lane off Foster Street in Dandenong.


Multi-deck car parks

For opening hours and the fees at our Thomas Street, Walker Street (Dandenong) and 'number 8' Balmoral Avenue (Springvale) multi-deck car parks see the multi-deck car parks page.


Carroll Lane car park

Located on the south side of the railway, just west of Dandenong Railway Station, the Carroll Lane Car Park provides long-term parking for people who work in Dandenong.

The single-level car park opens Monday to Saturday, 6am to 7pm (except public holidays). The car park is monitored by CCTV cameras and is well lit. Up to three vehicles can be registered on any one permit.

Corporate customers can also purchase permits for use by their staff. Ordinarily a maximum of five vehicles can be registered under each corporate permit.

For more information on the Carrol Lane car park, visit the page.


Ticket Machine Faults

If you find that a ticket machine is faulty, there is usually another machine nearby which can provide you a ticket. Machine and meter faults can be reported to Council by calling 8571 1000.

Parking During Public Holidays

Road Rule 318 states that parking signs specifying days of the week do not apply on public holidays, unless the sign says it applies on public holidays.

Council has chosen to extend this to Rule to all time restriction signs throughout the central activity districts within Dandenong, Noble Park and Springvale. Parking time restrictions (shown on green signs) therefore do not apply in these areas on public holidays. Parking is also free on these days.
