A summary of the Area 15 (Wollstonecraft) survey results are available in the Completed Survey Document Library. The recommendations of Council’s Traffic Engineer were referred the external Traffic Committee members on 5 June 2019 under delegated authority and subsequently approved on the 8 July 2019.

Notifications letters will be distributed to affected residents informing them of the parking changes by Friday 26 July 2019.  Signage will be installed shortly thereafter.

North Sydney Council has recently reviewed the existing parking restrictions in the Wollstonecraft Parking Area 15 on Boronia Street, Cable Street, Milray Avenue, Russell Street, Shirley Road, Telopea Street and Tryon Avenue. See map in document library map with highlighted roads indicating the area being reviewed.

It is Council’s understanding that residents and their visitors are experiencing increasing difficulties in obtaining parking close to their property due to increased demand, particularly from commuters and visitors to the area.

Since Council is unable to increase the supply of on-street parking, it is proposed to introduce a number of parking strategies which 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.

The most effective way to manage commuter parking is to extend parking restrictions, and/or install parking meters and make them resident exempt.  Combined with enforcement, this ensures that there is a turnover of vehicles and improves the likelihood of finding a vacant parking space.  Information on Council’s Resident Parking Permit Policy, including eligibility and fees, can be found on Council’s website or contact Customer Service on 9936 8100.

Council also operates a Visitor Parking Permit scheme.  Vehicles that display the permit are able to park in residential zones and are not subject to the time restrictions.  Each residential property is entitled to 30 Visitor Permits per year, and each permit is valid for one day.  For further information, including fees, visit Council’s website 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 under Traffic Delegated Authority. To follow up on the progress, please visit Council’s website via the link above.   

Please note that all comments received will be considered, however it is not intended to reply to individual respondents.
