As Lismore continues to get back on its feet there is a significant amount of work to be done to get local businesses up and running again. Lismore City Council has now introduced new ‘Work Zones’ for tradespeople to facilitate the reconstruction and recovery process following the floods.
In the area known as the CBD super block, tradespeople can apply for a Trade Parking Permit to park in a dedicated Work Zone. The public are asked not to park in these zones.
The streets that define the super block are Woodlark Street (North), Keen Street (East), Conway Street (South) and Molesworth Street (West).
This means tradespeople can park in Work Zones without any time limits. However, they may not park in areas sign posted No Stopping’, ‘No Parking’, ‘Loading Zone’, ‘Taxi Zone’, ‘Disabled Parking Zone’ or in paid-parking zones unless a ticket is purchased and displayed.
Trade Parking permits are free and must be displayed at all times. To apply for a Permit, you can visit the Council website at www.lismore.nsw.gov.au/apply-now-for-trade-parking-permits.
The public can continue to park in areas not designated as Work Zones, with normal parking rules in place, such as timed parking.
Members of the public wanting to park in the CBD can rest assure that there is plenty of availability and should refer to the Lismore CBD parking map.
Trades are strongly encouraged to utilise Work Zones to reduce the impact on the general public.
