AGPC is committed to minimising any potential impact on residents and businesses within the local community. Therefore, to ensure the safety of patrons and the surrounding community, traffic changes will be implemented on local roads. We appreciate your cooperation in assisting us to provide a safe, secure, and enjoyable event.
This year access to roads within the Local Access Zone (Fitzroy Street, Park Street, Canterbury Road, Kerferd Road, Bridport Street and Montague Street) will not be restricted as they have previously been. Rather, AGPC together with the City of Port Phillip will be trialling the use of Restricted Parking within the Local Access Zone (LAZ).
Temporary parking changes of 2P Thursday to Sunday 8.00 am to 6.00 pm will be installed to discourage Grand Prix visitors from parking in residential streets. This approach will provide ease of access to residents and visitors to local businesses, schools, and community centres in the area.
In 2022, permits will be issued by the City of Port Phillip, and all queries regarding permits should be directed to the City of Port Phillip ASSIST Service Centre on (03) 9209 6777.
The City of Port Phillip and AGPC will be evaluating the success of the trial, with a report going to Council following the event. Impacted residents and operators will have the opportunity to have their say in a targeted survey regarding the Restricted Parking trial.
Council parking restrictions and permits will continue to apply. Please contact the City of Port Phillip ASSIST Service Centre on (03) 9209 6777 for further information on restrictions.
Permits issued for previous Grand Prix events will not be valid in 2022.
