Area 19 Crows Nest North - Parking Restriction Review Survey.
Survey closes 01 December 2017. Council has recently reviewed the existing parking restrictions in the Crows Nest Parking Area 19 bounded by Chandos Street, Alexander Street, Albany Street and Oxley Street. Refer to map in 'Document Library' - red lines indicating the approximate scope of proposed changes.
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, 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. Information on Council’s Resident Parking Permit Policy (refer to 'Important Links' to view this Policy), including eligibility and fees.
Please note that restrictions in Willoughby Road will not include resident parking.
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, refer to 'Important Links'.
This survey is not a voting form as such, but will assist in determining support for the parking restrictions proposed for your street.
