Car Parking Fund Cap

Luring small business to Victor Harbor’s town centre

In attempt to lure more small businesses to Victor Harbor’s town centre the City of Victor Harbor has made a move to cap contributions to its Car Parking Fund.

Council’s car parking fund was established in 2007 to assist with the future provision of parking within the Regional Town Centre Zone of Victor Harbor. The Car Parking Fund Contribution Scheme allows development proposals to satisfy car parking requirements by either providing actual car parking spaces or by making a financial contribution to the Fund.

At its meeting on 4 August 2016, the City of Victor Harbor agreed to cap the car parking contribution at $200 per parking space for small business proposals that met specific criteria including:

  • Only requiring Development Approval for a change of use of the land;
  • Do not result in a building expansion; and
  • Where the development site is within the designated ‘Regional Town Centre Zone’ area.

The interim cap will only be in place until 30 June 2018.

Prior to the cap being introduced, small business proposals would require a contribution ranging between $8,000-$15,000 per car parking space.

City of Victor Harbor Mayor Graham Philp said the introduction of the $200 cap for car parking spaces aims to act as a stimulus for the local economy.

"Council wants to make it easier for small business to set up shop in Victor Harbor's town centre, and one of the ways we are doing this is by cutting red tape and introducing the cap on Car Parking Fund contributions," said Mayor Philp.

"It really is a win-win; we are facilitating new employment opportunities and enhancing the vibrancy of the town centre through new business attraction."

"The change to the car parking fund contribution scheme is just one of a number of initiatives council has implemented to help grow our local economy and support local business. Council looks forward to continuing to work with the local business community to secure Victor Harbor's position as the premier place to do business on the Fleurieu."
