The Northern Beaches Parking Permit Scheme Framework (draft) was endorsed for public exhibition at the Council meeting on Tuesday 27 August.

The current Manly Residential Parking Permit Scheme is the only resident scheme operating in the Northern Beaches. However the draft Framework is proposed to apply to any new resident parking permit scheme introduced within the Northern Beaches in the future.

Recommendations in the Northern Beaches Parking Permit Scheme Framework (draft) include:

  • to link residential and registration details
  • residents demonstrate residential eligibility
  • residents provide proof of residence and vehicle registration
  • visitor, tradesperson, carer and support worker permits
  • permits for eligible businesses and car share providers
  • implementation of approved fees and charges
  • alignment with Roads & Maritime Services Permit parking guidelines

View the standalone documents in the document library below. This Framework relates to the recent Review and Audit of the Manly Parking Permit Scheme.

History on this project can be found here.
