Why is RPS being considered in this area?
What are the benefits of RPS?
The scheme gives preference to residents who live in an RPS area, where there is often competition for parking spaces with commuters or visitors to the area.
A two hour time limit will apply to vehicles without a permit, from 8am - 10pm, encouraging the regular turnover of spaces and discouraging long term parking.
Resident parking permits do not guarantee parking availability, but do provide a comparative advantage for residents.

What happens next?
The survey results will be reviewed by the Waverley Traffic Committee, which is made up of representatives from Council, Roads and Maritime Services and NSW Police Force. The Committee will then make a recommendation to Council as to whether the parking restrictions should be changed or not, which Council will consider (along with the survey results) before making a final decision.
It is anticipated that a decision will be made in July 2017.
