Important information relating to your Manly resident and business parking permits

The introduction of the Manly Parking Permit Scheme has been postponed until the proposed amended fees are endorsed by Council.

All current Manly Parking Permits will remain valid until the new permit scheme is introduced. Please continue to display your existing permit.

We will notify permit holders by email with instructions for renewal at least four weeks before applications open for the new scheme.

Consultation outcomes

Source:

Council publicly exhibited proposed amendments to the 2019/20 fees and charges for Manly parking permits from 15 January to 12 February 2020.

962 submissions were received. Key findings of the engagement indicated that many residents felt:

  • overall costs of permits to residents were too high
  • the first permit should be free
  • residents with no off-street parking should be entitled to free permits
  • seniors and self-funded retirees should receive the proposed pensioner discount
  • trailer, boat parking and motorhome parking should not be allowed on suburban streets
  • divided over the inclusion/exclusion of business parking permits
  • more rangers are needed in the area to enforce rules.

Background

The Annual Fees and Charges 2019/20 (adopted June 2019) included a schedule of fees for the new Manly Parking Permit Scheme which would apply when the scheme came into effect.

View details of the Manly Parking Permit Scheme Framework.

Revisions were made to the fees and charges in response to community feedback, including some additions and amendments to introduce the specified fees for the Residential Parking Permits, Business Parking Permits, Car Share Parking Permits, Support Worker Parking Permits, Multi-use Parking Permits and Special Issue Parking Permit for the “Not for Profit” Organisations. Fees for replacement of lost and damaged permits would also apply.

Amendments also included the removal of redundant fees from the fees and charges.

See table below for the complete list of proposed fees.

On 17 December 2019 a report went to Council presenting the results of the community engagement and seeking adoption of the Manly Parking Permit Scheme Framework.

View Council report (Item13.2 pg.163-172) and minutes.

The report also recommended that the amended fees for the Parking Permit Scheme for Manly be placed on exhibition for minimum of 28 days and be reported back to Council with any submissions.
