Area 22 Newtown

New parking policy

A new parking policy is being rolled out progressively across the City over 12 months from August 2014.

What changes with the new parking policy?

  • Newtown (Area 22) will join with the southern part of Camperdown (Area 30), and the northern part of Macdonaldtown (Area 36) to create a new larger parking area – it will be known as Area 22 Newtown (see Area 22 map).

What stays the same?

What is new in the policy?

When will the changes happen?

  • In early March 2015 letters will be sent to current parking permit holders to update them on the changes.
  • From 9 March 2015, new Area 22 will be created by amalgamating the former parking areas of 22, and parts of 30 and 36, and parking area signs with 'Area 30' and ‘Area 36’ will be changed to 'Area 22'.
  • Once the boundary changes happen you will be able to park in the wider Area 22 when the spaces close to you are full.
  • Eligible households and businesses can apply for Area 22 Visitor and Business parking permits from 16 March 2015.

Do permit holders need to do anything in the meantime?

  • No, if you have a resident permit (either Area 22, 30, 36) you can continue to park where you normally do.
  • Once the boundary changes happen you will be able to park in the wider Area 22 when the spaces close to you are full.
  • If you have a permit for Area 30 or 36 you can continue to use it until it expires at which time it will be replaced by a new Area 22 parking permit.
