We have developed a draft parking strategy for Croydon to address key concerns in the area.

How was the draft strategy prepared?

The strategy has been developed using information from:

  • Input during community engagement in March 2019 via Your Say Inner West, mail out to residents
  • Ongoing correspondence from the community about parking issues in the Croydon area
  • Parking data collected in December 2018


What’s in the draft strategy?

The strategy includes options for resident parking scheme in the following streets:

  • Anthony Street - between Edwin Street and Etonville Parade
  • College Street - entire street
  • Croydon Road
    • between Elizabeth Street and Anthony Street
    • between Anthony and Hunt Streets
  • Edwin Street
    • North of Anthony Street

What is a resident permit scheme (RPS)?

RPS introduces a time restricted parking for all users, resident permit holders excepted. Proposed time restrictions are Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm. Residents will have to apply annually for permits. First permit is free, and second permit will cost $56.50.

Eligibility

You must be a resident who lives within the resident parking scheme area

Permits are only issued to cars and motorcycles – not boats, caravans, buses, trailers, trucks or unregistered vehicles

Number of parking permits

The maximum number of permits per property is two and depends on how many parking spaces are on the property (including garages and driveways) and the number of vehicles registered to the property (including garages, driveways) and the number of vehicles registered to the property. The following table provides a guide.

Parking spaces on property

1 - if more than one vehicle is registered to the property

0 - if one vehicle is registered to the property
