Parking, pathways, and traffic

There is a range of on-street and off-street car parking throughout the Eurobodalla Shire.

  • There is no paid parking in the Eurobodalla Shire.
  • Some parking locations have time restrictions, which are listed on signs at the locations.
  • Drivers should always check signage for time limits because these vary based on where the car park is, as well as peak times during the day and days of the week.

Mobility Parking Scheme permits

Holders of Mobility Parking Scheme (MPS) permits can park for additional time in sign-posted timed on-street parking spaces and car parks operated by Council.

These additional times are as follows:

  • in 30 minute parking zones - the vehicle can park for up to 2 hours
  • in parking zones of less than 30 minutes - the vehicle can park for a maximum of 30 minutes.

MPS permit holders can stop in a No Parking zone for up to 5 minutes to drop off or pick up passengers or goods as long as the driver remains within three metres of the vehicle.

No charge applies for MPS permit holders in metered parking zones. There is no metered parking in the Eurobodalla.

MPS permits do not allow a vehicle to stand or park in areas signposted:

  • no stopping
  • taxi zone
  • bus zone
  • loading zone

Pedestrian access and mobility plans

Eurobodalla Pathways Strategy 2017

The Eurobodalla Pathways Strategy 2017 was adopted by Council at the meeting of 27 June 2017.

The Eurobodalla Pathways Strategy 2017 identifies pathways worth approximately $11.7 million. Council has allocated $3.5 million in its ten year long term financial plan for the provision of pathways and actively seeks grants, works pro-actively with community groups and landowners to maximise the outcomes delivered to the community.

The Eurobodalla Pathways Strategy 2017 includes a point score system to assist in prioritising works. The final priority of works may be influenced by factors such as available grants, community contributions and integration with other works.

Each year the draft program of works is advertised to the community as part of the Operations Plan and further community feedback is sought, with the Council determining the works to be undertaken each year.

Transport network plans

The Transport Network Plan - Northern Area Eurobodalla  was adopted by Council at the meeting of 26 October 2021.

The plan sets out the major actions and strategies for the next 10-20 years on all major transport routes.

It outlines the proposed changes to the local and regional road network required to facilitate growth and provide improved integration of pedestrian and cyclist movement between and within villages.
