Re:   Manly Parking Permit Scheme

Dear Sir/Madam,

On behalf of the Manly Business Chamber representing close to 200 businesses with vested interest in the Manly economy, we once again thank you for including a Business Permit within the revised Manly Parking Permit Scheme.  We are now keen to see a Business Permit that sets out a practical framework and supports businesses with daily operations.

Whilst the residential scheme acknowledges the diverse range of circumstances for domestic households, including:

  • eligibility to apply for two permits tied to vehicle registration
  • eligibility to apply for an additional permit in extenuating circumstances
  • a proposed multi-use permit on application that can be used by visitors, tradespeople and carers

The business permit is restricted to a single permit, linked to registration of business or business owner. 

The Manly economy has long been driven by the tourist dollar, and whilst this will always be the case, we are now seeing a greater emphasis on commercial in Manly with greater investment and a move towards shop top development.  To ensure this momentum continues at the very least the eligibility criteria for a business parking permit needs to acknowledge:

  • contractors
  • meetings
  • deliveries

This is vital to continue Manly’s economic growth and we are confident that an interchangeable business permit between nominated cars will allow the required flexibility.

Thank you for considering this request and we look forward to developing a scheme that considers all of Manly’s stakeholders.

Kind regards,

Luke Atkins
President - Manly Business Chamber
