The City of Cape Town has been requested to expand managed parking to areas where there is a high demand for on-street parking. ‘Managed parking’ means the City charges a tariff for the use of an on-street parking bay and that the tariff is determined by the time the bay is being occupied. Time restrictions are also applicable in these areas. Read more below:

Subcouncils, business owners, and residents from central business districts and popular recreational areas like Camps Bay and Muizenberg have requested that the City investigate expanding managed parking to these areas due to the rapid increase in demand for on-street parking.

The purpose of managed parking – charging a tariff for the use of a parking bay and implementing time restrictions – is to ensure a turnover of parking bays so that visitors have the opportunity to access popular destinations and facilities during business hours.

It is proposed that those who park in central business districts are charged per 15 minutes; and that visitors to recreational areas be charged per three hours. The management times are from 08:00 to 17:00 on weekdays, and from 08:00 to 13:00 on Saturdays.

The City proposes to expand managed parking to the following areas:

· Camps Bay (Subcouncil 16) [view plan]

· Durbanville CBD (Subcouncil 7) [view plan]

· Muizenberg (Subcouncil 19) [view plan]

· De Waterkant (Subcouncil 16) [view plan]

· Kenilworth (Subcouncil 20) [view plan]

· Newlands and Rondebosch (Subcouncil 20) [view plan]

· Gardens, Kloof, more streets in the Cape Town CBD (Subcouncil 16) [view plan]

· Gallows Hill (Subcouncil 16) [view plan]

Residents will have the opportunity to comment on this proposal from 13 November to 13 December 2019.

‘I encourage residents to please participate in this process. We want to know your views, and want as much input as possible so that we can determine the need and the support for the proposal,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Transport, Alderman Felicity Purchase.

The following information will be available on the City’s website, at the affected subcouncil offices, and libraries:

· Maps indicating the areas and streets that form part of the proposal

· A questionnaire about residents’ parking experience in the areas that form part of the proposal
