What's in the Five Recommendations?

Strategy ‘A’ - Protecting Residential Amenity:

This recommends the expansion of the resident parking permit scheme area to cover at least a 400m catchment area around Sydenham station in areas classified as residential. See Figures 3-6 of the Executive Summary for details. Parts of the following streets would be included.

  • Alfred Street
  • Bridge Street
  • Frederick Street
  • George Street
  • Grove Street
  • Sutherland Street
  • Terry Street
  • Yelverton Street

Strategy ‘B’ - Improve parking controls generally across the study area – particularly adjacent to Sydenham Station

This recommends that streets with parking capacity constraints, such as the station precinct, residential streets and the employment precinct should strengthen parking controls to support residential amenity, business activity and desirable access priorities. It also recommends making parking restriction time periods consistent (see Figures 3-6 of the Executive Summary for details). Parts of the following street would be included in an expanded residential parking scheme.

  • Burrows Avenue.

Strategy ‘C’ - Better manage parking through optimising existing assets including:

- Supply of angled parking in high demand areas – the report supports the generation of additional parking spaces in areas that are constrained with an aim of improving access to businesses and residential amenity. It recommends that Council implement the introduction of some angled parking in the following streets (see Figures 3-6 of the Executive Summary for details).

  • Barclay Street
  • Gerald Street
  • Sydney Street
  • Terry Street

- Promote walking and cycling – the report supports the implementation of the Marrickville Bicycle Strategy and the Marrickville Pedestrian Access Mobility Plan (PAMP), an increase in bicycling parking provision at Sydenham station, and the introduction of other initiatives to promote active travel.

- Promote travel by public transport – the report supports efficient use of parking resources in the Sydenham area, the development of a 400m residential parking permit scheme catchment around Sydenham station, sustainable forms of travel and the implementation of Workplace Travel Plans for new development and sites that are changing use, and the development of a kerbside transport access strategy for Sydenham station.

Strategy ‘D’ - Commuter parking controls:

Council should monitor commuter parking levels on residential streets and manage its impacts. Council should also consult with Transport for NSW (TfNSW) on its feasibility under the current TfNSW delivery program of providing a commuter car park near to Sydenham Station.

Strategy ‘E’ - Protect access to businesses:

This focuses on providing additional on-street loading zones and short term parking zones for businesses situated in areas with restricted on-street parking supply and high parking demand.

Council Officer Comment: It is recommended in the report that following consultation with affected stakeholders, that Council implement new loading zones (see Figures 3-6 of the Executive Summary) in these streets:

  • Barclay Street,
  • Meeks Street,
  • Sydney Street
  • Vincent Street
