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/ St Peters

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?

1. The revised Parking Strategy for the Marrickville Town Centre has been adopted by Council

The feedback received through the community engagement process, along with a study of parking

occupancy data, was used to create a series of final recommendations for improving parking in the Marrickville Town Centre precinct. This was considered and adopted by Council at a meeting on 25 July 2017.

The strategy recommends making changes to 12 streets, lanes and car parks in this precinct which includes:

  • introducing additional parking permit areas
  • maximising available space for commuters and visitors to local businesses
  • making it easier for people to find Council carparks
  • enabling access to off-street parking by introducing parking restrictions in laneways
In parking permit areas residents can apply for a free parking permit and are exempted from timed parking.

Parking changes will occur in these streets, laneways and car parks:


Church Street
Garners Avenue*
Marrickville Road
Frampton Avenue*
Gladstone Lane
Meeks Road
Frampton Avenue (west) car park
Greenbank Street
Peace Lane
