From 19 September 2016 eligible residents will be able to apply for a resident parking permit as part of the Redcliffe Peninsula Rail Line on-street parking management trial.
Throughout 2015 Council and the Moreton Bay Rail project sought feedback
from residents in relation to an on-street parking management trial. Extensive
community consultation identified the management measures preferred by the
majority of residents to discourage commuter parking in local streets
surrounding the new Redcliffe Peninsula Rail Line stations.
Based on this feedback, Council will introduce the following measures in conjunction with the opening of the new Redcliffe Peninsula Rail Line:
- No parking between 6.00am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday (parking permits excepted)
- A resident and visitor parking permit trial
Vehicles without a resident or visitor parking permit will not be permitted
to park in the signed areas from Monday to Friday between 6.00am and 6.00pm.
The trial parking permit arrangements are similar to those used by other
South East Queensland councils and will be closely monitored during the trial.
It is important to remember parking permits and relevant signage will only apply from the date of commencement of the new Redcliffe Peninsula Rail Line. 'No Parking' signage is currently being installed in local streets but will be covered and not enforced until the commencement date.
From 19 September 2016 Council will begin issuing two visitor parking permits for each property within a Redcliffe Peninsula Rail Line on-street parking management trial area. Each household within a trial area will receive the visitor parking permits prior to the commencement of the Redcliffe Peninsula Rail Line.
Resident parking permit applications received in the interim will be
processed by Council, with permits mailed back to residents.
