Northern Beaches’ residents have scored a major coup with the announcement that everyone with a beach and reserve parking permit, can park for free at over 40 locations throughout the Northern Beaches.
“Whether you’re in Manly, Dee Why or Palm Beach this is a significant outcome with immediate benefits for everyone on the Northern Beaches”, says Northern Beaches Council Administrator, Dick Persson.
Under the newly formed Northern Beaches Council, rate payers in the former Pittwater and Warringah Council areas who have printed parking permit stickers and ratepayers in the former Manly Council area who have been issued digital parking permits will be able to park for free at most reserve and beach parking areas throughout the Northern Beaches.
There are some restrictions, with a four hour parking limit on Manly Beachfront because of the high demand.
Beach and reserve parking permits are not valid at existing Manly residential parking permit scheme areas because they require a special residential parking permit.
Residents in the former Manly Council area, who are eligible for free digital parking permits, will be mailed two Northern Beaches parking permits next week at no charge.
All other residents or ratepayers who are eligible for a parking permit under the rules of the former Manly, Pittwater and Warringah Councils can buy a 2015/2016 Warringah or Pittwater parking permit or a 2016/17 Northern Beaches Councils sticker from the Northern Beaches Council subject to the payment of any applicable fee.
