Improving access and use of laneways


Marrickville Council has developed draft Laneway Parking Guidelines to address community concerns about accessing, using and parking in narrow laneways in the Marrickville local government area.

Laneways are an important part of the Marrickville environment. They provide connections to other streets, access to properties and additional street parking. Issues arise when vehicles parked in narrow laneways prevent access to properties or block garbage trucks.

Council’s preference is for residents to negotiate with each other to avoid implementing parking bans. Where problems occur, parking restrictions can be considered for individual laneways on a case-by-case basis.

These guidelines have been developed to provide consistency for evaluating the need for parking controls and manage the use of narrow streets and laneways to maximise parking.
