  • Community Feedback

    9 days ago

    Over the past six months Northern Beaches Council has carried out a number of engagement activities to understand parking demands and challenges in Newport. We heard from over 250 residents and local businesses through the survey and listening posts.

    The feedback gathered from our community, coupled with information from traffic consultants Parking & Traffic, has provided a better understanding of parking in the area. This feedback has been taken into consideration for the development of the draft Newport Parking Demand Management Strategy.

    The report on the draft Strategy (available online from 5pm on Thursday 23 February) is being presented to Council on Tuesday 28 February and if endorsed will be placed on exhibition for public comment for a 28 day period.

  • Background

    4 months ago

    In early 2016, following a preliminary parking study and community feedback on the high demand for parking in some of the streets in Newport, we made changes to parking conditions and put in place a number of 30 minute and 2 hour (2P) parking restrictions in the Queens Parade West Car Park. These changes have provided short term and high turnover parking spaces to support local businesses.

    The current parking demand study is a continuation of this earlier work with a broader study area including:

    • Queens Parade West Car Park
    • Trafalgar Park Car Park
    • Beaconsfield Street (up to Newport Primary School)
    • Kalinya Street
    • Queens Parade West (up to Newport Primary School)

    These studies will help us develop a Newport Parking Demand Management Strategy in 2017.
