Parking signs are currently being erected in Mullumbimby as part of a council’s revised parking management scheme that includes a change to parking times in Brunswick Heads, Bangalow and Mullumbimby.

The parking restrictions will then come into effect on Monday 26 March.

‘Increased visitation by locals and visitors and limited car parking spaces has driven the need for a different approach to parking management in our townships,’ Council’s Director of Infrastructure, Phil Holloway said.

‘Once these new parking schemes are in place, we will be monitoring and reviewing their effectiveness and reporting the results back to Council by June 2019.’

The new parking schemes do not affect Pay Parking or the use of E-Permits in any way.

Council’s compliance officers will be active across the Shire in coming weeks to inform and educate people about the new time restrictions.
