  • Queenscliff Parking Review On Hold

    9 months ago

    Following the Council resolution on 27 October 2015, the findings of the Queenscliff Resident Survey into options for parking, including resident parking options in Queenscliff, was to be referred to the Traffic Committee at the conclusion of the local government reform. On 12 May 2016 Warringah Council was dissolved and the new Northern Beaches Council was formed.

    We are currently aligning the new Council to bring together the three former Councils. This will provide an opportunity to apply a consistent approach to parking across the new Council area, including the review of parking arrangements in Queenscliff.

  • Queenscliff Parking Survey - June 2015

    about 2 years ago

    The Resident Working Group, together with Council officers, have developed and distributed a survey for Queenscliff residents and property owners with a number of options for a Resident Parking Scheme (RPS). One option meets the RMS guidelines and an alternate scheme has possible variations that would require amendment of RMS guidelines.
    • Any RPS needs to satisfy Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) requirements, which includes the issuing of permits.
    • A RPS would provide eligible Queenscliff residents with a permit, issued by Council, allowing them to park on the street in the designated areas without restriction. Vehicles without a permit would have time-restricted parking.
    • It is likely that there would be a charge for each permit to cover ongoing costs of the scheme. This is likely to be $50-$100 per year.
    We are now seeking your input on the two options for allocating permits if a RPS is implemented in Queenscliff.

    Please read the information in the survey and in the Document Library before completing the survey.

    You can provide feedback:

    • Complete the online survey (survey closed)
    • Return the hardcopy via the reply paid envelope.
    For further information please contact Roads, Traffic and Waste on 9942 2819
