Parking Precinct Plans and Permit Parking Policy

The revised Draft Parking Precinct Plans and Draft Permit Parking Policy will be presented for adoption by Council at the 27 August 2019 Council Meeting.

In May 2019, Blue Mountains City Council completed a period of consultation with the broader community on the Draft Parking Precinct Plans and the Draft Permit Parking Policy. Interested residents and businesses were encouraged to provide submissions for Council's consideration during this period.

Since this time, Council has updated the Draft Parking Precinct Plans (PPPs) for Wentworth Falls Lookout, Conservation Hut, Echo Point and Blackheath Town Centre. A new Permit Parking Policy has also been drafted to support the introduction of the Parking Precinct Plans.

Parking Precinct Plans are an effective means of holistically considering the balance between parking demand and supply and identifying relevant management measures to provide more equitable parking opportunities for both visitors and nearby residents and to mitigate impacts on the natural environment as a result of the increased visitation, by shifting demand to sustainable forms of travel.

The focus is on improving the management of existing parking areas, including improving the turnover of vehicles which includes investigating options such as pay parking, electronic sensor parking and changes to time restrictions.

The updated Draft Parking Precinct Plans and Permit Parking Policy are available for download in the Document Library on the right-hand side of this page.
