Parklets for businesses

What are parklets

Parklets are repurposed car parking spaces (approximately two parking spaces) that consist of facilities beneficial to pedestrians such as public seating, bike parking, landscaping, shade, public art, games and activities. 

The objective of a parklet is to create places that foster community interaction, activate streets, promote vibrancy, enhance walkability and are inviting to all members of the community.

​A parklet is different to an alfresco dining area. An alfresco means an area in which tables, chairs and other structures are provided for the purpose of the consumption of food or beverages and are solely for the use of restaurant patrons. 

Types of parklets

There are three types of parklets:

  • City parklets: Funded, designed, built and maintained by the City
  • Hosted parklets: Sponsored by an adjacent business, organisation or community group (the applicant) and funded, designed, built and maintained by the applicant.
  • Private parklets: Proposed on privately owned car parking areas and are usually subject to a planning application being lodged and assessed by the City.

Developing a parklet for your business

If you believe a parklet would enhance your business and would like more information on how to get approval, please contact us.

Consider the following before contacting the City:

  • Parklets are public spaces and should feel open and welcoming to everyone
  • Parklets must be temporary in nature and are usually permitted for one year
  • A parklet may have to be temporarily or permanently removed for street improvements, utility work, emergencies or if it is creating a serious amenity concern
  • Parklets are not intended for the service or consumption of alcohol
  • The City may consult with surrounding businesses before approving a parklet
  • A building permit may be required depending on the type of construction proposed.

Local Commercial and Activity Centres Strategy
