Bright Car Parking Plan

The final Bright Car Parking Plan was adopted at the Ordinary Council Meeting in September 2018. View the final plan HERE.


Project Background:

• Bright experiences significant parking demands during events and peak tourist periods.
• There is a high demand for priority on street parking and there is also poor directional signage to off street car parks.
• Council receives frequent requests for more, improved or different parking, such as short stay, disabled parking, loading bays and long vehicle parking.
• New retail and residential developments in the town centre have increased demand for parking in recent years

Proposed improvements:
The proposed improvements are in response to both community feedback and the study findings, and are based on the following principles:
• Park once, walk the rest of the journey. Bright will be a safe, comfortable and easy place to walk to minimise vehicle circulation from people parking multiple times in one trip.
• Cycling will be encouraged and accommodated as an alternative means of transport into the town centre.
• On street parking will be improved to accommodate special needs and time restricted with a range of short term limits to encourage turnover and support local business.
• Off street parking around the town centre will be well signed, improved and integrated with event management strategies to ensure use for parking during peak periods.
• Enforcement will be undertaken regularly to ensure system integrity
