Area 10 North Sydney Area - Parking Restriction Review Survey
Feedback closed midnight Sunday 16 June 2019
North Sydney Council has recently reviewed the existing parking restrictions in the North Sydney Parking Area 10 on McHatton Street; Doohat Avenue; Doohat Lane; Priory Road; Toongarah Road and Bay Road between Edward and Harriott Streets. Refer to the map in the document library indicating the parking zones under review.
Since Council is unable to increase the supply of on-street parking, introducing a number of parking strategies will provide a more equitable way to manage parking and give residents and their visitors fair access to the resource. In addition, the proposal is to rationalise the parking restriction variations to simplify the time limits.
Parking demand can be reduced in two ways: with time restrictions or through cost disincentives (paid parking).
The most effective way to manage commuter parking in high demand areas and enable improved parking opportunities for residents is to: extend parking restrictions, introduce paid parking, and make these areas resident exempt. Combined with enforcement, this ensures that there is a turnover of vehicles and thus improves the likelihood of finding a vacant parking space. For example, residents have recently reported significant improvement in finding parking due to improved turnover, after parking meters were installed in Edward Street and Lord Street last year.
Please note: under Council’s Resident Parking Policy there is a cost in obtaining a permit and some residents may not be eligible for a permit.
Information on Council’s Resident Parking Permit Policy, including eligibility and fees, can be found on Council’s website https://www.northsydney.nsw.gov.au/Council_Meetings/Forms/Parking or contact Customer Service on 9936 8100.
The purpose of the survey is to determine if there is support to retain existing restrictions or introduce additional metered and/or timed parking restrictions. The survey is not a voting form as such, but will assist in determining support for the parking restrictions proposed for your street.
It is expected that the results of this survey will be considered by the North Sydney Traffic Committee on Friday 26 July 2019.
Thank you for your assistance in completing this survey. Please note that all comments received will be considered, however it is not intended to reply to individual respondents.
