We have cancelled the Council Meeting for this project following the withdrawal of federal funding for additional commuter car parks in Boroondara. Read Council’s response to this decision.

We received funding from the Australian Government to explore additional short-term and long-term car parking spaces as part of its Urban Congestion Fund. These car parking spaces are located near Camberwell, Canterbury and Glenferrie train stations.

About the proposal

We are proposing to build additional car parking spaces at existing Council-owned car parks. We have identified suitable locations for these additional car parking spaces near each train station:

  • Camberwell – around 90 additional car parking spaces on top of the existing Junction West multi-level car park on Harold Street in Camberwell.
  • Canterbury – a new car parking facility of around 200 spaces at the existing Wattle Valley car park, retaining surface-level parking and adding 2 levels of underground parking.
  • Glenferrie – a new car parking facility of around 490 spaces at the existing Liddiard Street car park in Hawthorn.

These proposed additional car parking spaces will:

  • support community members who want to commute by train or tram
  • support visitors keen to shop, dine and explore each area
  • improve amenity and access to existing Council-owned car parks.

Community consultation

Feedback on this proposal is closed. Thank you to everyone who had their say. 

Council is reviewing the findings from the consultation and feasibility studies. A report will be presented to Council on 15 March to decide if the projects should proceed to deliver:

We value your input and will share our findings soon.
