Back to driving the block and paying fines for over-staying your welcome.

The pandemic has created the luxury of being able to find a park anywhere, any time, in most towns in the Northern Rivers. Alas, as restrictions relax and business begin to reopen, we’ll be back to doing blockies to find a space and putting money in the meter.

In the Lismore CBD patrols will be re-instated from July 6, 2020 following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

Council’s Manager of Development & Compliance Chris Watts said Lismore City Council had temporarily suspended patrols when restrictions were first imposed to help support local businesses.

‘Now that restrictions have eased, more people and significant activity is returning to the CBD. This means we need to reinstate patrols to make sure equitable parking is available for both shoppers and staff. This will help to reinvigorate the CBD and our local economy,’ he said.

‘We thank everyone in advance for adhering to all parking signage, such as timed parking and loading zones.’

Free all-day parking remains at all pre-Covid 19 locations, such as the Harold Fredricks and John Crowther carpark.

Leading up to July 6, Council will be undertaking patrols, issuing warnings for exceeding time limits and undertaking educational activities.
