Parking Meters on Public Holidays

Parking on public holidays in the North Sydney Local Government Area

Parking fees and restrictions apply on public holidays in two instances. These are:

  1. When parking signs do not state days of the week, and

  2. When a sign states “and public holidays”.

These restrictions now apply on public holidays in medium-to-high-demand parking areas in the suburbs and streets listed below. The reason for this change is to increase parking turnover and ensure parking is appropriately managed on public holidays.

Drivers must check signs carefully when parking on a public holiday and adhere to the restrictions and fees if required. Please be aware of special clearways or road closures for special events.

Council Resolution

In accordance with Council’s resolution on 15 December 2014, and as recommended by the Traffic Committee on 28 November 2014:

THAT Council investigates appropriate locations and amend the parking restrictions, including parking meter areas that are in medium to high parking demand areas, to include the wording “including Public Holidays”, with a report to the next available Traffic Committee meeting that includes a list of the areas where the parking changes have occurred.

Note that some signs will include “and public holidays”, while other signs will be simplified by removing all days of the week to infer the same message. For more details, see the Australian Road Rules for New South Wales, rule 318 (3).
