More options for residential parking in Waverley

Waverley Council

Waverley Council’s residential parking scheme at the Hollywood Avenue Car Park, Bondi Junction, is making it easier for residents to access secure overnight parking.

Residents can apply for a monthly pass to park in the secure car park at a discounted rate of $144 per month between the hours of 5pm and 9am.

The initiative has also helped free-up street parking in surrounding streets, Waverley Mayor, Paula Masselos said.

“On-street parking is in high demand across our local government area due to the sheer number of people who live, work and visit our area,” Mayor Masselos said.

“Most residents do not have private off-street parking, so Council decided to offer the Hollywood Avenue Car Park for overnight use for residents.

“We recognise that walking and cycling is the most sustainable forms of transport, but we also appreciate that people do still own cars.”
