What's being proposed?

To support Five Dock businesses during construction of the Metro West station, Council is proposing changes in fees for business parking permits in Five Dock. The proposed fee change would result in business parking permits being issued at no cost for the remainder of the current financial year. Future fees will be determined as part of the annual fees and charges process.

A notice of motion was taken to Council on 5 December 2023 and the proposed fee change is now on public exhibition until 4 February 2024. Read the meeting agenda and minutes.

It has not yet been determined whether Council will reimburse businesses who have already paid for a parking permit. Following the public exhibition period, a report will be taken to Council on 19 March 2024 to determine the specific arrangement.

Current FeeProposed Fee
Business parking permit for 1st car$270$0
Business parking permit for 2nd car$535$0
