Policy Background

Thank you for your feedback. This consultation has conclude. Staff will now review your feedback. 
  • Why is the City proposing to change the parking controls?

    In May 2014 Council endorsed the Neighbourhood Parking Policy and resolved to review existing parking controls in Chippendale.

    Council recognises that there are a range of legitimate demands for parking in Chippendale, including for residents and their visitors, businesses and their customers, and for the range of other attractions that make Chippendale unique - including galleries, restaurants and community facilities.

    New housing, education and commercial projects in and around Chippendale will increase transport demand, and have flow on impacts for parking. In response, the City is proposing to extend some parking restrictions later into the evening and to weekends, and add parking restrictions to some streets that are currently unrestricted. 

    These changes are intended to increase parking priority for existing residents, businesses and their respective visitors, and ensure that Chippendale streets are less attractive for all-day or evening parking by workers, students or occupants of major new developments that are not eligible for parking permits.
