FAQ regarding changes to the carpark hours

Q:What is happening with the carpark?
A: Moonee Ponds Central is standardising and changing carpark hours within the Coles Mall by reducing the restricted hours in the upper carpark to a limit of two hours; in line with the ground level parking.

Q: Why are we doing this? 
A: Previously, the 3 hour parking restriction in the Coles Mall carpark has been utilised by workers in the area during Monday to Friday. Unfortunately this resulted in less available parking spaces for shoppers. 

Although Moonee Ponds Central supports sustainable travel alternatives and ride sharing; our priority remains to provide convenience to our shoppers as well as a comfortable and safe environment. 

Q: Who is monitoring the parking? 
A: Local council parking inspectors currently monitor Moonee Ponds carpark and will continue to do so.

A: Cars cannot be moved from one spot to another within the Coles Mall carpark.
