Glen Eira Multideck Car Parks

This engagement is now closed. Thank you to all participants who took part in the online survey and workshop. Please visit the Multideck Commuter Carparks project page for an update on the project.


In 2019, Glen Eira City Council received part federal funding to develop two commuter car parks located in Elsternwick and Bentleigh as part of the Urban Congestion Fund. This triggered initial community engagement about the multi-level commuter car parks with the local community. This engagement was limited to information provision. It is understood the information and approach resulted in some negative feedback.

Since this initial engagement, Council has negotiated for the carparks to be fully funded by the federal government ($20 million dollars) and is now seeking to revisit the project with the community. Since the initial engagement, the location and design of both car parks has changed. Further to this, there has been considerable ongoing national media attention about the distribution of the Urban Congestion Fund.

In addition, Councillors have expressed an interest in engaging with the community on other congestion reducing initiatives which Council could apply for funding under the Urban Congestion Fund. As a result, Council has decided to re-engage the community, with the aim of better understanding the community’s and key stakeholder’s views around the acceptability of the funding, their views around the new locations proposed for car parking should the funding be accepted, and priorities for any possible new initiatives should further funding become available or advocacy opportunities arise.

Further information can be found in the FAQs, the Probity Report and in the Glen Eira Park and Ride Report.
