PARKING POLICY AND CONTROL CODE FOR THE CITY OF SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
The paper discusses traffic and parking problems resulting from development in the city, and how the problems are being solved. A policy of severe restraint on curbside and offstreet parking within the core of the CBD partially offset by provision of off-street parking in strategically located parking stations on the perimeter of the CBD was evolved. The most novel feature of the whole proposal was that developers would be required to contribute to the cost of construction of perimeter parking stations. To achieve these objectives the City of Sydney was divided into six different parking districts each with specific requirements. The paper describes the parking requirements of the more important districts and the relevant parking restrictions imposed.
