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.

1. The revised Parking Strategy for Newtown-Enmore 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 Newtown-Enmore precinct. This was considered and adopted by Council at a meeting on 26 April 2017.

The strategy recommends making changes to 18 streets in this precinct which includes:

  • Introducing additional parking permit areas
  • Enabling access to off-street parking by introducing parking restrictions in laneways
  • Creating additional motorcycle parking

In parking permit areas residents can apply for a free parking permit and are exempted from timed parking.
