The City of Ipswich Parking Pricing Strategy establishes a strategic direction for Council to adopt as an approach to parking management, allowing consistent and uniform responses for the implementation of priced parking and the management of time restrictions in the Ipswich City Centre, Springfield Town Centre and activity centres experiencing parking pressures. The Strategy provides direction for parking management that is consistent with working towards Council’s long-term strategic goals by aligning parking objectives with established policy for sustainable transport as outlined in iGO.

The Strategy identifies seven objectives for priced parking and seven broad recommendations that have been designed to assist council to manage priced parking within activity centres and the application of supporting parking management tools.
