In April 2020, Council eased restrictions on all 1P, 2P and 4P parking zones in the City of Parramatta to support the community as part of its COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Package. Council extended the grace period from 10 minutes to one hour and drivers who overstayed the limit were given two cautions before being issued with a fine.
From 22 February, Council will be returning to its former parking restriction policy, with 10-minute grace periods for time-limited areas and no automatic cautions.
It is important that all drivers observe and adhere to any parking restrictions when parking their vehicles. Drivers should be particularly vigilant with timed parking zones and when parking around schools.
