Regulated parking bays are located within the Atherton central business district to improve traffic flow, access to businesses and availability of parking for the disabled. Parking patrols are undertaken to check compliance.
Regulated parking hours are generally between 8.00am and 5.00pm weekdays and 8.00am and 12.00pm Saturday. Signs are placed at the beginning of each parking bay section, identifying the allowed parking timeframe. This is indicated by the number at the top of the sign next to the P. For example 3P means you can park in the bay for 3 hours, 2P for two hours. Please take note of all regulated parking signs.
Council provides ample unregulated parking areas in Atherton. There is off street parking on Railway Lane along with parking bays outside the regulated parking area for CBD workers to park.
