Technology to improve accessibility in Bayside

Bayside Mayor Dr Christina Curry used a Mayoral Minute to highlight Council’s continued use of technology to improve accessibility and inclusivity across Bayside.

“I am excited to announce an agreement between Bayside Council and the NSW Government Department of Customer Service for the supply, installation, and management of parking sensors in dedicated accessible parking spaces across the Bayside LGA,” Mayor Curry said.

“The Department of Customer Service is funding the cost of the implementation as well as maintenance of the sensors for a three-year period.”

The delivery of these sensors, expected to occur in the first half of 2023, will include integrating the data from the smart sensors back to the NSW Government Park’nPay App for community members to utilise and view availability in real time.

This will allow residents and visitors to:

  • View accessible parking locations online
  • View in real-time if parking spots are available or occupied
  • Conduct wayfinding via GPS to the accessible parking location
