Good news RE. Parking permits

Thankfully the council have amended their earlier error in only issuing us temporary parking permits.

I’m pleased to inform you that we now have the 4hour permits that allow parking Monday-Friday prior to 9am and after 3pm and Saturday to Sunday anytime at the back of the boathouses. These are limited though and we do not have enough for every member! So we ask you all if you borrow one – from the locked storage box in the back stairwell, PLEASE return it straight after your row so it can be available to another member who may need it.

Also remember that at weekends there is NO CHARGE for parking along boathouse drive, so you do not have to be behind the boathouses.

We do offer our committee members and regular coaches access to Parking permits so please see head of rowing if you would like to request one.

Apologies for the confusion at the beginning of the month when the wrong permits were issued to us by the council.

Parking Permits

Parking Permits for club members are no longer available due to changes by the City of Melbourne

Rowers, coaches and coxes are encouraged to attend training by use of public transport and/or bicycle or foot.  If you drive, please allow sufficient time to park in the Boathouse Drive parking spaces, spaces around the Tan/Botanical Gardens or use the available parking stations at Southbank.

The council has issued the club with three permits only and 30 single use vouchers.  The committee will discuss at it’s next meeting how our normal club operations (rowing coaching, boat repairs, cleaning & facility maintenance, hall hires and can continue with these 3 shared vouchers and the single use vouchers).
We were only advised of this situation yesterday so were unable to give you more notice.
