  • Update - Community Meetings Tuesday 21 February

    8 months ago

    On Tuesday 21 February, we held two community meetings at Pittwater RSL to present the results from the parking occupancy and turnover study carried out in January 2017.

    We also presented the initial comments and results from the community consultation which has been undertaken to date, including drop in sessions, survey feedback and written submissions.

    Over 80 participants attended the two sessions with a mix of on-shore and off-shore residents as well as commuters from the Central Coast.

    The survey findings and community feedback are now available online.

    Next stages and draft timeline for this project:

    • We will work with the consultant to draft a parking strategy for the study area over the next four weeks
    • Conduct further consultation with the community on the draft strategy
    • Refine the strategy and report to Council in mid-2017 for endorsement
    • Once endorsed, place on exhibition for public comment for 28 days
    • Review comments and table final report to Council for adoption in mid-2017

  • Background

    11 months ago

    Palm Beach is a popular destination and attracts many visitors to the area. The Palm Beach Ferry Wharf is a transport hub which services our off shore community from Coasters Retreat and Mackerel Beach, as well as visitors, day trippers, holiday makers and commuters. Due to this, parking is of high demand during weekends and peak periods.

    The current demand for parking exceeds the number of available parking spaces in the Pittwater Park car parks (north and south) and surrounding areas. Due to this, Council is undertaking a Palm Beach Parking Demand Management Strategy to help us better understand the current demand for parking.

    We invite you to provide feedback on current parking trends, behaviours and challenges in the area.

    Your feedback will help Council prepare a draft Palm Beach Parking Demand Management Strategy, which will be released for consultation mid-2017.
