At the September 2021 meeting Council endorsed the ‘Narrow Streets Parking and Access Policy’. Implementation of this new Policy is commencing, focusing on the Stage 1 Works – the ‘Top 25 Priority Streets’, primarily streets 5.0 metres wide or less. Initial works are to be delivered in the 2021/22 financial year. If you reside on one of these streets, we will be in contact shortly to discuss proposed treatments and the timing.

The policy is available for download on the City of PAE website on the Policies and guidelines page.

The Narrow Streets Parking and Access policy seeks to ensure equitable access and use of local streets that are narrow (typically less than 7.0 metres in width). The policy also assists Council to meet the legal obligations for road management. Importantly, the policy provides a way to create a safer road environment for our community.

Engagement with community across the City of PAE was undertaken in May to June 2021 through community meetings and on Have your say PAE. More than 7000 residents and property owners on 285 streets were sent letters. More than 600 responses were received. The engagement sought to understand community views and issues experienced by people living on or near narrow streets. Approximately 75% of respondents were supportive of the policy. Many respondents provide specific, local information that has informed the strategy or recorded to inform implementation.

A summary of submissions and how these have been considered is available for download below.

Implementing the Policy

We are implementing the recommendations of this policy over a five-year period, with Works scheduled to be completed in 2026/27 financial year. Staff have developed a staging plan to deliver these street improvements to the community.
