  • Plan Update

    over 1 year ago

    On 12 May 2016 Warringah Council was dissolved and the new Northern Beaches Council was formed. As a result, the Council meeting scheduled for 24 May 2016 did not go ahead.

    Council is in the process of determining their position on the matter as agreed by all three former council areas. A trial period occurring at the former Pittwater Council is currently in progress and due to end on 30 September 2016. Once this trial period ends the Boat Trailer Parking Management Plan is intended to go to Council to be resolved.

  • Background

    over 1 year ago

    The NSW Government introduced new legislation for parking boat trailers in NSW.

    The Government intends that the Impounding Act 1993 be amended by the Impounding Amendment (Unattended Boat Trailers) Act 2015 from 1 October 2016. This will enable Council and other authorities that ‘opt in’ to take impounding action against boat trailers parked for more than 28 days.

    Council needs to review the legislation and provide a plan to manage boat trailer parking in Warringah.

    The plan is required within the next few months so that we can formally notify the NSW Government of our recommendation.

    The Office of Local Government and Roads and Maritime Services will assist Council to implement the new laws which are expected to commence from 1 October 2016.

    Once the Act comes into effect, Councils can apply the new legislation to all, part or none of their Local Government Area. This provides flexibility to meet the specific needs of different communities. Areas where the provisions apply will be published in the NSW Government Gazette.

    All Councils have been asked to put forward their plan of where the new legislation will apply

    Key Points

    • In any area where the provisions are applied, boat trailers must move at least every 28 days.
    • They must be moved past an intersection with another road as a minimum
    • Council must then provide notice of at least 15 days before impounding the trailer.
