Parking Management Plans

Council has drafted Parking Management Plans for Ferntree Gully and Upper Ferntree Gully to provide for the safe, fair and accessible use of car spaces in our community.

The draft plans were developed following consultation with the Knox community and two independent parking studies. The draft plans aim to ensure:
- Residents have parking for visitors on their street, while allowing adequate clearance for emergency vehicles
- Businesses in commercial areas have parking for their customers and staff

Please note: Within the activity centres, restrictions on the street and within Council car parks will be implemented once the Parking Management Plans are endorsed by Council in 2019. Restrictions in residential areas will be implemented according to community demand. Please see Parking Management Plan documents for more information.

Please email your feedback to trafficengineering@knox.vic.gov.au by 31 January 2019.

Lewis Park draft Masterplan

Lewis Park is one of the largest open spaces in Knox. As our community grows, it has the potential to become a place that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy.

The Lewis Park draft Masterplan provides 20-year vision for creating inclusive spaces for people to engage with nature, culture and sport – and where our natural environment can thrive.

Community consultation was held in September 2018, and a consultation report is being prepared for Council.

You can still explore the draft Masterplan through an interactive map at participate.knox.vic.gov.au.
