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.

Parking on street and in Council car parks in the Noble Park central activity centre is free.

Fee payment is only required at certain times of day, and in some cases, only on certain days of the week. Parking signs in each location tell you if there is a time limit and payment of a fee required. The word ’ticket’ on a parking sign indicates that you must buy a ticket to park in that area.

Activity Centre Parking – Short term

For on-street parking, signs will be displayed regularly along the length of street. Parking ticket machines in Dandenong also display restrictions and parking fees. 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 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 carpark. 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 off-street car parks are not valid in on-street parking areas.

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 two 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.

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.
