Council has sought community feedback on a car-share trial at the Redland Bay Marina car park.

Four car parks were allocated to the trial, which was extended to run until Friday 16 April 2021.

Car-share is identified in the Redlands Coast Transport Strategy as having the potential to deliver good transport outcomes by reducing demand for parking and private vehicle ownership, and increasing the turnover and effective supply of parking.

The Redland Bay Marina Car-Share Trial offered island residents who only infrequently need a mainland car access to a conveniently parked, mainland vehicle, without the overheads associated with owning one.

Your feedback will help Council decide what to do that the trial has ended.

A report will be prepared for a future General Meeting of Council and updates provided for this page.

    EOI to steer Weinam Creek car-share scheme at Redland Bay Marina


    Plans to establish a long-term car-share scheme at Redland Bay Marina, Weinam Creek, are pushing ahead.

    At today’s general meeting, Redland City Council resolved to support an Expression of Interest and subsequent tender process for the scheme.

    Mayor Karen Williams said the move followed the conclusion of a car-share trial conducted at the marina from August 2020 to April 2021.

    “An existing local car-share operator provided the service and Council officers monitored the progress to determine if a permanent scheme was viable,” Cr Williams said.

    “Assessment criteria included general community feedback as well as car-share vehicle usage and trial enforcement.

    “Over the course of the trial, local community feedback was generally supportive and the operator reported a consistent increase in usage and registrations as a result of having dedicated car parks in close proximity to the ferry terminal. “

    Division 5 Councillor Mark Edwards said Council would seek applications that proposed a suitable number of spaces, site location close to Redland Bay Marina and ways to ensure parking compliance at the proposed site.

    “One of the issues to emerge during the trial was parking enforcement and ensuring there were enough spaces for car-share vehicles only,” Cr Edwards said.

    “As a result, Council will be requesting proposals that include ways to ensure exclusive use of the spaces, and that may be via a lease, licence or permit arrangement.

    “It is proposed that the car-share scheme operate for approximately two years.”
