Hornsby Shire Council has released its draft Brooklyn Car Parking Management Plan for public exhibition, representing its vision for a plan that protects the natural coastal environment, while serving community needs.

The draft Brooklyn Car Parking Management Plan recommends introducing time restrictions on off-street parking and on-street parking on the northern side of the road servicing the Upper McKell Park picnic area. It also recommends excluding trailers from parking on public land in the village centre.

Hornsby Shire Mayor, Phillip Ruddock, said Council had worked closely with the community in drafting a sustainable and efficient plan.

“Brooklyn is a jewel in the crown of Hornsby Shire’s unique and diverse landscape. We worked closely with the community to distil a vision for it as a place for everyone to enjoy,” Mayor Ruddock said.

“In doing so, people identified parking as the highest priority issue to be addressed, to achieve that vision.

“Many years of work and careful consideration have paved the way for this parking plan. It is the result of a raft of studies, consultation, legal advice and robust data.

“I’m pleased that we are now taking this positive step forward and prioritising car parking in line with our responsibilities as a council – to provide access to the Crown Land that we manage for recreational and village centre parking for businesses and visitors.

“We’re now looking forward to receiving the community’s feedback and I encourage everyone across the Shire to tell us their thoughts and any ideas that contribute to solutions.”

The Brooklyn Car Parking Management Plan is now on public exhibition until 30 October 2022 and is available at: yoursay.hornsby,nsw.gov.au.

    OMG, DID HE REALLY SAY ALL THAT RUBBISH. ALL COUNCIL HAS DONE IS IGNORED THE LOCALS NEEDS AND REQUIREMENTS FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND NOW THEY PUBLISH A REPORT THAT COMPLETELY DESTROYS OUR INVESTMENTS, OUR AMMENITY AND OUR COMMUNITY. NOT TO MENTION REPORT AFTER REPORT PUTS MORE STRESS ON AN AGEING COMMUNITY. SHAME ON YOU.

    I agree Damien. No mention at all of river access only communities. We don’t exist to Council, even though we are their ratepayers. If we numbered in the thousands they wouldn’t dare try to do this to us, but they see us as an easy target.
