Re: Draft Neighbourhood Parking Policy
BIKEast would like to make this late submission to strongly support the detailed submission issued by BIKESydney, dated 5 July 2013.
BIKESydney has made a big effort to provide a case that indicates an alternative way forward.
There is a need to significantly further develop and change the draft parking policy.
This is necessary to be consistent with Sydney's 2030 Strategy for a sustainable future in the face of higher populations, workforce and visitors using and requiring access to the limited public street-space.
The way parking is governed will have a significant impact on the desired future streetscapes and use of this under-valued part of the public realm.
Please, reconsider the basis of the draft policy.
