Lismore City Council has produced a handy parking map to help residents with the introduction of free parking and changed parking restrictions around Lismore Base Hospital.
Lismore City Councillors voted last month to introduce free parking in the 10-hour zones on Hunter and Dalziel streets for the next six months and waive parking restrictions on Weaver Street, Laurel Avenue and Mckenzie Street to enable all-day parking for the same six month period.
Mayor Isaac Smith said at the time that this was done in recognition of the critical and selfless role our local health care professionals in caring for our community during this pandemic.
Lismore City Council’s Manager Development & Compliance Chris Watts said street signage around the hospital precinct has also been amended to reflect the changes.
“Council staff have also been educating drivers about the changes to on-street parking around the hospital precinct over the last couple of weeks to ensure people are aware of the changes,” he said, adding that parking patrols re-commenced this week.
