The Woes of Visitor Parking Misuse

Visitor parking misuse is a common problem that plagues residential areas across the board. Complaints range from residents using visitor parking spaces for their convenience to visitors overstaying their welcome and non-genuine visitors taking up valuable spots. Such challenges can create issues for building managers, including the inability to track and identify offending vehicles, a lack of available parking when needed, and the absence of an efficient way to penalise offenders or remove unauthorised vehicles.

Q&A Time – Your questions about Visitor Parking Answered.

Q: How Long Can You Park in Visitor Parking?

A: The duration of parking in visitor parking spaces can vary depending on the rules set by the property management or owners corporation. Typically, visitor parking is intended for short-term use, such as a few hours. Longer stays might not be allowed to ensure that these spaces remain available for actual visitors. It’s crucial to check the signage or guidelines specific to your location to understand the time limits for parking in visitor spaces Remember: It is not uncommon for 24 hour limits to be placed on Visitor Parking Spots – be sure to always check the current rules within the residential community that you are using.

Q: How Many Visitor Parking Spaces are Required by Law in NSW?

A: In New South Wales (NSW), there is no specific legal requirement that mandates a certain number of visitor parking spaces for every property. However, local councils and planning authorities often have guidelines that suggest a general ratio of visitor parking spaces per residential unit. The specific requirements can vary based on factors like the type of development and its location. These guidelines are aimed at ensuring sufficient parking availability for visitors without creating an excessive burden on available space.

Q: Who Owns Visitor Parking Spaces?

A: Visitor parking spaces are typically considered common property within a strata-titled property complex. This means that no individual owner has exclusive ownership of these spaces. Instead, they are owned collectively by all the owners within the complex as part of their shared ownership of common areas. The owners corporation, which is responsible for managing the common property, has the authority to determine the rules for the use of visitor parking spaces.

Q: Can Residents Park in Visitor Parking?

A: The usage rules for visitor parking can vary based on the property’s by-laws and regulations. In some cases, residents might be allowed to park in visitor parking spaces temporarily, especially if they have a genuine need (e.g., moving or unloading items). However, this practice is generally discouraged to ensure that these spaces remain available for actual visitors. If residents consistently use visitor parking, it can lead to disputes and a lack of parking options for genuine visitors. Always check your property’s specific guidelines to understand the rules about residents using visitor parking spaces.

Friendly Tip: visitor parking is reserved for bona fide visitors only, i.e. it would likely be a requirement that you are present at the building while you park there and that the owner or occupier you visit is present also.
