Regulatory Matters


Report No. 6.1             Parking time limits -South Beach Rd, Brunswick Heads

File No:                        I2020/555



In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic and concerns about the public not adhering to recommended requirements for social distancing and minimal travel, Mayor Richardson has used his delegated authority under section 266 (d) of the LGA  to introduce new parking restrictions to the area east of South Arm Bridge, Brunswick Heads.

This decision was made by the Mayor following Local Area Emergency Management Committee meetings, and signage changed on 9 April.

Figure 1. shows the signage proposed by Council Staff for installation. It is noted that these signs have already been installed prior to the Easter Long weekend to act as a deterrent and are subject to LTC review and comments.
