Parking Precinct Plans and Permit Parking Policy

Council is seeking to actively engage with the broader community, including interested residents and businesses on the Draft Parking Precinct Plans and a Draft Permit Parking Policy.

Blue Mountains City Council is currently developing Parking Precinct Plans (PPPs) for Wentworth Falls Lookout, Conservation Hut, Echo Point and Blackheath Town Centre.

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.

A new Permit Parking Policy has also been drafted to support the introduction of the Parking Precinct Plans.

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

Submissions must be received by Wednesday 1 May, 2019.


The submission period has now closed.
