Parking in your Street

Parking Signs and Symbols

Signs based on Australian Standards have been erected to advise motorists of the intended use of parking spaces and any restrictions that apply.  It is up to drivers to read the signs and comply with their requirements when parking in the Town. A document outlining the signs and their meaning can be found below:



Parking Infringements

Parking infringements are issued when a vehicle is parked contrary to displayed parking restriction signs or contravenes regulations detailed in the Town's Parking Local Law 2001 (available below).  To safeguard against parking in a way that contravenes the Town's regulations refer to the information outlined below.

School Parking

Most Town of Cambridge schools experience parking and traffic issues at pick up and drop off times. These times can be quite stressful for parents, guardians, grandparents etc.  Below are some suggestions to assist at these times;

  • During pick up and drop off times, use the set down and pick up areas where possible and do not park vehicles in these locations.
  • Park a bit further up the street safely and enjoy the walk back to your vehicle, chatting to your child/children about what they did in their school day.
  • Where possible, car pool with other parents. This will cut down on the number of vehicles vying for parking spots and promote a safer and more enjoyable experience for both the driver and their passengers.
  • If you live close to school, try walking or riding a bike to pick up your child/children.

Your cooperation is requested when parking at schools as the Town’s Parking Officers and Rangers regularly patrol around schools.
