North Sydney Traffic Committee
Any proposed changes to traffic or parking arrangements must be considered by the North Sydney Traffic Committee before they can be implemented.
Traffic Committee meetings are held at six week intervals.
Council has been delegated certain powers from the TfNSW with regard to traffic matters upon its roads (see Related Doc below). A condition of this delegation is that Council must take into account the Traffic Committee recommendations.
There are four voting members on the Traffic Committee - the RMS, the NSW Police, the local State Member of Parliament and North Sydney Council. Council only gets one vote at the meeting - this is determined by the majority vote of the Councillors present at the meeting. The Mayor generally chairs the Traffic Committee meeting, however, in the absence of the Mayor one of the other Councillors will chair meeting.
