City of Sydney is reviewing its ‘Neighbourhood Parking Policy’ and is seeking comments on its proposed changes which it says will ‘increase parking permit options for residents and local businesses and help improve parking turnover in high-demand areas.’ Specifically, the proposed changes would provide:
- tradespersons’ parking permits for local residents and businesses
- more choice in the type of vehicle eligible for a business parking permit
- more visitor parking permits for most households and more flexible purchase options
- changes to recommended parking restrictions in some areas.
In addition, there would be an increase in the cost of permits to cover administration costs.
The draft Policy is open for comments until 12 January 2108 and can be viewed and commented on here: http://www.sydneyyoursay.com.au/neighbourhood-parking-policy-review.
