Contributions to Stage 2 engagement has closed for evaluation and review.

Thanks to everyone who contributed.


The City of Greater Geelong is currently undertaking a Transport and Parking study within Barwon Heads.

Earlier this year we asked the community to provide their concerns relating to traffic, parking and active travel within the Barwon Heads area. We have used this feedback, along with traffic counts and parking occupancy data, to develop some solutions to community concerns within the area.

A summary of what we heard from the community during stage 1 and the data we have used, including traffic volumes, parking occupancy data and crash data, can be found in the Document Library (on this page).

Stage 1: This engagement is closed

Contributions to this Stage 1 of this engagement have closed and have been evaluated. This feedback has been used to inform the proposals developed for Stage 2 Engagement.

The City of Greater Geelong sought community feedback to inform the Barwon Heads Transport and Parking Study in May 2020.

We heard from local residents, business owners and regular visitors about key transport, parking and pedestrian issues or opportunities relating to Council-managed roads in Barwon Heads.

We have used this feedback to inform the proposed treatements for the Barwon Heads Transport and Parking Study. This plan promotes sustainable transport, improves pedestrian and cycling accessibility, enhances safety and reviews parking conditions for the benefit of the community now, and in the future.

We heard from the community on topics including:

  • Parking options, including current parking time limits
  • Access to and from school
  • Speed limits
  • Pedestrian and cycling networks, including crossing points
  • Congestion and delays in peak periods
  • Road surface types (coastal vs formal treatments)

Thank you to those you took the time to contribute to Stage 1 engagement for this project.
