Parking updates

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has updated its advice for parking in local councils.

Normal parking rules and restrictions will begin again from 12 October 2020 to ensure public safety and access. There will be a grace period from 12 October 2020 until Sunday 18 October 2020 to help our community adjust. ‘Business as usual’ parking rules will return from Monday 19 October 2020.

The grace period also applies to school areas throughout Casey. During the grace period, Parking Compliance Officers will focus on parking education. Our officers will ensure that parents follow parking restrictions and other COVID-SAFE arrangements specific to their child’s school. After the grace period, normal parking rules will commence.

Please remember that during the grace period, Parking Compliance Officers will still respond to safety-related offences and customer complaints. This includes in and around our schools.

For more information, please contact Glenn Conry, Team Leader for Parking Compliance on 9705 5200.

Public immunisation sessions

The Victorian Chief Health Officer has stated that immunisation is an essential service that should be maintained during the current restrictions. People under stage 4 restrictions can travel for health reasons, which includes getting a vaccine. As such, the City of Casey will continue this vital service with all immunisation sessions remaining opened and bookable as planned.

Casey residents can book for a vaccine but please be aware there are changes to public immunisation sessions to ensure the health and safety of community members and staff. Please ensure you regularly check the immunisations page on our website for updates.

Needle exchange program

The Needle Exchange Program has been modified, due to the temporary closure of our face-to-face customer service centres.

The program will only be a sharps container provision service until further notice.

If you have a full container, we ask that you hold on to these until the program returns to normal operations. If you need a new container, please contact us and we will coordinate a time for an Environmental Health officer to drop this to your home.
