Parking during COVID-19
Parking officers are still enforcing parking restrictions, including the requirement to pay for parking.
This is to ensure parking availability to support access to businesses and essential services within the city centre that remain operating.
We recommend people wash their hands regularly and use hand sanitiser before and after using parking machines.
The City has also made changes to the way it manages parking in the Bendigo Hospital precinct to assist healthcare workers and ensure that people who need to access the hospital's services can find parking.
We understand this is a challenging time and that things can change quickly. We will continue to review our approach to parking enforcement as the situation evolves.
Parking rules help improve traffic flow and improve parking access. Overstaying a time restriction in a parking space may result in a fine. Parking restrictions generally operate from 8.30am to 5.30pm across the city centre.
It is important that you look for signs when entering any street or car park. Parking signs can apply to a length of road, an area or a car park and may apply at different times of day.
