Seeking community panel members for Warragul Parking Study


Expressions of interest are being sought from community members to join an independent panel to provide recommendations to Council on the future of Parking in Warragul.

The panel will play an important role in researching, deliberating and reaching a consensus on a preferred solution to parking in the Warragul CBD. Ultimately, the panel will help Council determine how to make the most of current parking resources and plan for future parking needs.

The panel will consist of approximately 40 members to provide a representative cross section of our community – including local residents, business owners, local workers and visitors.

Panel recruitment will be carried out independently of Council by Sortition Foundation.

Panel members will be required to attend three panel sessions to deliberate and discuss options and recommendations to present to Council. Panel members will also be required to review several key parking study documents to assist in reaching an informed consensus.

Three community panel sessions will be held online:

  • 6.00pm – 9.00pm on Tuesday 21 July
  • 9.00am – 4.00pm on Saturday July 25
  • 9.00am – 4.00pm on Saturday 1 August

Each appointed panel member will receive a payment of $250 as thank you for their time. To be eligible for payment, all sessions must be attended.

Following the online sessions, panel members will be required to form a position and present their recommendation to Council. The panel’s recommendation will be used to inform Council’s decision on the future of parking in the Warragul CBD.
