To assist Redlands Coast island residents who are self-isolating due to COVID-19, Redland City Council has suspended parking infringement notices for some timed parking areas within the Redland Bay Marina car park and all timed parking areas at Toondah Harbour and the Victoria Point ferry terminal car park.
The suspension does not apply to non-timed parking including disabled parking spaces, loading zones, boat trailer parking, parking other than in a marked bay, or the parking spaces at Weinam Creek highlighted on the attached map.
Mayor Karen Williams said the changes would help support Redlands Coast’s island communities.
“Council is aware of the challenges faced by our island communities due to their geographic isolation,” she said.
“Worrying about potential parking fines while they are isolating to help slow the spread of COVID-19 is a worry these residents don’t need.
The suspension of timed parking infringements at ferry terminal car parks will continue until further notice and Council will advise the community publicly in advance before recommencing them.”
The area highlighted on the Weinam Creek map will be changed from three-day parking to 18-hour regulated parking to assist regular commuters.
Mayor Williams said: “We ask that residents who have cars parked long-term in the highlighted area at Weinam Creek move their vehicles as soon as possible to accommodate the needs of regular commuters.
“Council will soon be in contact with people who have cars parked in that area who have not had the opportunity to move their vehicles.”
