Mosman Council looks to app for parking solution

03 December 2015

Mosman Council is looking to install parking technology that will enable drivers to find the best available car parking spaces at the click of a button.

The new technology will mean residents can easily check on-street and council car park availability via an app or the Council website before they even leave home.

Director of Environment and Planning Craig Covich said parking and traffic flow had long been a concern for Mosman motorists and local businesses.

“The community has told us that parking is a key concern for them and that they can end up driving around for an extended period, adding to traffic congestion,” he said.

“This technology is exciting and offers a real-time solution by providing the community access to occupancy data, however it’s important to note that the information will not be used for enforcement purposes.”

Similar technology is currently being trialled by a handful of Sydney councils, but if Mosman’s plan gets the final green light Mosman would proceed straight to installation.
