It is expected that these changes will occur shortly, within the next 3 weeks.

Feedback closed midnight Sunday 3 February 2019.

North Sydney Council has recently reviewed the existing parking restrictions in the North Sydney Parking Area 26 within the boarder of Oak Avenue, Park Avenue, Ernest Street, Young Street and Belgrave Street. Please refer to the attached map indicating the parking zones under review.

It is Council’s understanding that residents and their visitors are experiencing 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, 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.

The most effective way to manage commuter parking is to extend parking restrictions, introduce parking meters and make these areas resident exempt. Combined with enforcement, this ensures that there is a turnover of vehicles and improves the likelihood of finding a vacant parking space.  Please note however 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 attached 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 website via the link above.   

All comments received will be considered, however it is not intended to reply to individual respondents. 

For further information, contact Council’s Traffic and Transport Operations Department on 9936 8100.
