Collaroy’s beautiful beach, busy playground, cafes, shops and cinema attract many visitors who compete for parking with commuters in the local Council carparks.

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) recent announcement to implement clearways along Pittwater Road will increase parking demand. We are looking to alleviate this issue through implementing shorter term car parking in the carparks to balance the needs of all users.

While the introduction of the B-Line has provided improved transport options for commuters, community feedback tells us the Collaroy Beach Playground carpark is full of all-day commuter vehicles during the week. This makes it difficult to find a car spot when stopping for lunch, going to the movies or visiting the beach or playground.

We also know that business operations have changed from the traditional Monday to Friday and half day Saturday to now trading a full seven day week and into the evening.
