Woolwich village residential parking scheme review 2010

The Woolwich Village Residential Parking Scheme commenced in August 2003 and was limited to residents with no off-street parking. Following representations to Council the scheme was reviewed in 2008.

On 14 December 2009, Council adopted a revised Woolwich Village Parking Scheme and Permit Parking Policy, following an extensive survey and consultation process during 2008.

However, actions on the revised scheme and its implementation were deferred, pending completion of construction works at Woolwich Dock, Clarke’s Point and the Horse Paddock during 2009/2010, as the likely traffic and parking impacts arising from these works were unknown.

It is clear that the need for the Woolwich Residential Parking Scheme has not diminished. There is ample evidence that the level of activity now being generated in the area by successful businesses and the new commercial activities at Woolwich Dock have only exacerbated parking availability for residents and businesses located in the study area at various times during the week and on weekends.

Council is proposing that a revised Woolwich Village Permit Parking Scheme is now implemented as soon as practicable, subject to adoption of the final configuration, rules and procedures of operation.

A copy of the proposed revisions to the scheme is attached for your consideration.

The proposed rules and procedures, also attached, have been developed based on the recommendations of the Hunter’s Hill Council Traffic and Transport Advisory Committee, the Woolwich Parking Study, Councils Parking Permit Policy and the mandatory guidelines on ‘Permit Parking’ issued by the RTA.
The Hunter’s Hill Council Public Transport and Traffic Advisory Committee will meet on Tuesday 17 August 2010, commencing at 6.00pm in the Council Chamber, where this proposed scheme will be considered. Interested residents are welcome to attend.

Council is also seeking resident and business owners written comments about the proposed changes, rules, procedures and proposed fees and it would be appreciated if your responses could be returned by no later than Friday 27 August 2010.

Council will then consider the recommendation of the Hunter’s Hill Council Public Transport and Traffic Advisory Committee and resident and business responses and submissions, before making a decision at possibly the Ordinary Meeting of Council on 13 September 2010.

Subject to this process and agreement, it is anticipated that the scheme could commence from 1 October 2010.

Should you require any further information, or wish to discuss any aspect of the proposed scheme, please do not hesitate to contact Mr David Innes, Group Manager Works and Services, on telephone 9879 9403.

Written comments and submissions should be addressed to:

The General Manager
PO Box 21
Hunters Hill NSW 2110


Email to: council@huntershill.nsw.gov.au

NB. Please do not include comments about the proposed non-resident paid parking scheme at this time, as it is an independent scheme and will be the subject of a separate consultation process.
