Parking changes review

Background

In 2014/15 Council made parking changes in a number of streets across four precincts:

  • Lewisham
  • Newtown-Enmore
  • Marrickville Town Centre
  • Sydenham

These changes were recommendations from parking studies in each precinct. Check out the precinct boundary map.

Council is now reviewing these changes and in March 2016, the community was invited to give feedback on their current experience of parking.


What's happening now?

The feedback received, along with parking occupancy data, is being used to create a revised draft parking strategy for each precinct.
