Pier Street Illegal Parking

From David Hehir, Foreshore Coordinator, City of Port Phillip

In regards to illegal parking on Pier Street, footpath and nature strip, could you please encourage your members to formally register their request for a ‘Parking Officer callout’ on 9209 6777 or assist@portphillip.vic.gov.au day or night.

Phoning during the day or night with a full description of the location and cars blocking footpaths etc, is typically the quickest way to ensure a Parking Officer attends. I have been advised the Pier Street area is included in routine patrols, but they can often be diverted in response to other residents callouts in other parts of the municipality. When the residents calls are formally registered via 9209 6777 or assist@portphillip.vic.gov.au it also helps Council improve the Parking Officer roster times and staffing levels to better match the community demand throughout week.

Safety Concerns - Cars Accessing and Driving on Princes Pier

We've just received the following note from Jenny Bygrave, Communications and Stakeholder Manager, Port Community, Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC).

Recently PoMC has received several queries from residents in the towers adjacent to Princes Pier, about a bollard on the pier. We understand that private cars are removing the bollard to drive onto the pier and potentially causing a safety problem for pedestrians on the pier. 

As PoMC is not the managing authority for Princes Pier, I wonder if you might consider including the contact details of Major Projects Victoria within your next newsletter, to inform residents of the agency which can best assist them? 

• Major Projects Victoria manages Princes Pier

• Community members with enquiries about Princes Pier can contact Major Projects Victoria’s general office number 03 9655 8622. 

PoMC is in the meanwhile advising any residents who call of these details, and forwarding the queries directly to MPV.
