Car Share Schemes are considered to be a way of making vehicles available to local residents without the need for them to own one. It has the potential to reduce private car ownership, road congestion and pollution, has benefits to the environment and increases the mobility of people using the service.

Research shows that each car share space can replace up to 10 vehicles on the road. Council’s recently adopted Car Share Policy will reduce demand for on-street parking, mean fewer cars on Marrickville’s roads and lead to less pollution and greenhouse gases. The policy is part of a holistic approach to transport planning, along with improvements to public transport services and enhanced facilities for cycling and walking.

Generally, car share schemes rely on having convenient dedicated on-street parking spaces. Accordingly, Council is considering a proposal to sign-post a designated parking space in your street for exclusive use by vehicles owned by authorised car share organisations, as per the attached plans. The designated space will be in operation 24 hours / 7 days a week, during which, only specifically marked cars share vehicles will be permitted to park in this space.

Council has not yet made a commitment to any changes to the existing parking arrangements in your street. You can have your say using the submission form below until 5pm on Wednesday 3 September 2014.
