Driveway Lines - Proposal to Recoup the Cost of Installing Driveway Lines

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council, at the request of residents, installs line markings on either side of the driveway to provide a visual reminder to drivers that a driveway exists. These lines carry no legal meaning but assist in orderly parking in most locations. Currently, Council does not charge a fee for this service.

Council is considering a proposal to recoup the cost of installing the driveway lines.

On 1 September 2020 Council considered a report on this matter and resolved to proceed with the public notice process of the proposed fee of $165 per driveway lines or remarking of the existing driveway lines for at least 28 days. The resolution of this agenda item is available on Council's website at https://mosman.nsw.gov.au/council/meetings/agendas-and-minutes-2020/.

Rangers or NSW Police can enforce vehicles parked across the driveway with or without lines under the Road Rule 198. Hence, the installation of driveway lines is merely a reminder to drivers about the existence of the driveway.

Submissions will be received until 30 October 2020.
