Parking Front to Kerb along Manly Beachfront has been a talking point as it seems many people have been fined for parking rear to the kerb. This was determined many years ago by the former Manly Council to make it safer along the adjacent shared path.
Concerns continue with the two parking stickers issued with the rate notices, as there seems to be continuing confusion as to where they can be used and for how long. As well they are being made available for sale by unscrupulous ratepayers.
Feedback from locals on the Manly Resident Parking Schemes has been positive due to the reduction in passes being issued. Passes now require the car rego number to be displayed and only one visitor pass is available for each household. It’s true there are many households that need more passes, but there are definitely more spaces available in each of the zones making it easier for permit holders to find a spot near their homes.
Council carparks in Manly seem to be underutilised in the evenings so the MCF has asked for the operations and fees charged to be reviewed. A resident suggested that the top of the Whistler St carpark be repurposed as an entertainment area, but sadly this is not possible for safety reasons.
