Bowden Parking Plan

Consultation has concluded



The City of Charles Sturt has engaged Tonkin Consulting, URPS and Aspect Studios to prepare a Parking Plan for the suburb of Bowden and sections of Hindmarsh and Brompton that border it, as shown in the Study Area Map.

There is a lot happening in the study area, as listed below:


Inner West Precinct Transport and Parking Plan

The study is being undertaken as part of Council's continuing implementation of the strategies and recommendations of the IWPTPP, endorsed by Council in 2015. The IWPTPP identified a number of parking issues in the Study Area, these include:

  • Increased demand for on-street parking space due to increased number of residential properties
  • Potential conflicts between business customers, residents and city-bound public transport commuters
  • The loss of parking space to driveways for new infill development

A changing neighborhood


There has already been a significant increase in dwelling numbers through infill development in the northern part of Bowden and throughout Brompton. Many of the remaining residential properties have narrow frontages, with little or no on-site parking. Under Council’s current policy, only those properties with no off-street parking are eligible for a residential parking permit.

Public transport

The City of Charles Sturt is served by both train and tram. Public transport commuters coming from the north western suburbs may elect to park in Bowden side streets rather than use parking available at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. This all-day use can reduce daytime access to on-street car parks for local residents, employees and customers.

Events

Streets close to Port Road are used by people attending events at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre and Coopers (Hindmarsh) Stadium. This can cause friction for residents and their visitors who rely on on-street parking after hours.
