Parking Locations, Restrictions and Fees
In addition to managing on-street parking, Council also owns and operates a number of off-street car parks across the municipality, including four multi-level facilities. The payment of a fee to park is required in parts of Dandenong including most off-street car parks and at the 8 Balmoral Multi-Deck car park in Springvale. There are also a number of privately owned carparks in the Springvale Activity centre where a fee is applied.

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.

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 specifies that parking signs with days of the week listed on them don’t apply on public holidays.
Council has chosen to apply 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.
