Implementation of Legislation to Manage Boat Trailer Parking

Community Consultation is currently underway.

This consultation will run from 11 May to the 21 June 2017

Overview

Lane Cove Council is currently consulting with the community following legislative changes that grant councils the power to enforce boat trailer parking restrictions.   
 
The changes to the Impounding Act, 1993 have been developed to discourage the long-term parking of unattended registered boat trailers on public roads, often by people who do not live in the local area. By encouraging off-street storage of boat trailers, existing on-street parking spaces will become more available for local residents. 
 
Under the Act Council would be able to implement tighter management arrangements in relation to registered boat trailers that may otherwise be parking lawfully on public roads. The new legislation relates only to registered boat trailers - registered box trailers and caravans are not included.
 
Before expressing interest to the Office of Local Government to participate in the scheme, Council is seeking the community's feedback on the issue of boat trailer parking in the Lane Cove area.
  
If the scheme is introduced boat trailers would be required to be moved at least every 28 days and must move at least one street block. If the boat trailer does not move, Council must provide the registered owner with 15 days' notice before it can impound the trailer. Council would also have the option of establishing a charge for the release of an impounded item. 
 
Lane Cove Council's current Resident Parking Permit Scheme's only apply to cars and motorcycles and do not provide for the issuing of Parking Permits for boat trailers or vehicles over 3 tonnes, as these vehicles move regularly and spaces are freed up for others to use.
 
The results of the community consultation will determine whether Council will implement the Impounding Amendment (Unattended Boat Trailers) Act 2015 after 1 July 2017. Until then, Council will maintain its current practice of not issuing parking permits for boat trailers.
