Stage Two of Community Consultation on the Citywide Parking Scheme

Stage Two of Community Consultation on Citywide Parking Scheme: Public exhibition of Draft Parking Strategic Plan 2022

The Draft Parking Strategic Plan 2022 is an update of the 2018 Citywide Parking Strategic Plan to align with the Community Strategic Plan 2035, developed in consultation with the community. It has also been informed by the Blue Mountains Integrated Transport Strategic Plan, the Blue Mountains Visitor Infrastructure Investment Strategic Plan (VIISP), and Council’s adopted and draft Town and Village Masterplans.

The update aligns transport planning for our City with our planetary health, sustainability and resilience objectives in light of the recent and future challenges posed by climate change and anticipated increase in visitation following international COVID-10 lockdowns.

The purpose of this Strategy is to:

  1. Provide a strategic framework to improve traffic and transport functionality across the city, including a pay parking scheme that manages traffic demand and congestion whilst providing revenue for visitor and resident infrastructure.
  2. Guide the progressive improvement of knowledge about of transport trends and implement strategies to improve planetary health through better transport options for visitors and residents.
  3. Enable and guide ongoing community and stakeholder engagement during the ongoing staged implementation of parking management in the City.
  4. Provide a framework for the staged implementation of a Parking Precincts Plan (PPP) for priority visitor destinations within the City. A list of Priority Precincts included in the draft strategy, will be reviewed in the light of submissions to this strategy and ongoing community engagement.

Submissions on the Draft Parking Strategic Plan closed on 20 January 2023.

Feedback received during this stage of consultation, as well as feedback received during stage one, will be reported to the elected Council in February 2023 and a decision will then be made on whether to endorse the Citywide Parking Scheme.
