Draft Traffic and Parking Bylaw
July 17, 2017
Council has drafted a Bylaw which would provide it with powers (including fines and the ability to tow vehicles) to address parking and traffic issues such as people exceeding parking restrictions, parking in loading zones and parking unwarranted/registered cars on the sides of roads. It is intended that the Bylaw will apply on all roads that Council manages, as well as on State Highways in urban areas.
The draft Bylaw also contains provisions where Council can restrict heavy vehicle use on roads, and allow use of those roads, only if compensation for damage to the road is paid.
Council intends to use the draft Bylaw to address complaints made by the community and does not intend on employing a parking warden.
Submissions are invited until 12 noon Friday 8 September 2017.
Oral hearings (if required) will be held on 28 September 2017 at the Marton Council Chambers.
