Wallsend proposed parking changes

City of Newcastle consulted the local community around changes to existing parking restrictions in response to feedback from local businesses.

Wallsend proposed parking changes

Wallsend is a growing local centre currently undergoing renewal.

Following feedback from local businesses, changes are proposed to some existing parking restrictions with the aim to best position Wallsend for medium to long-term development of the area under our Local Centres Plan.

The proposed parking changes aim to improve access to local businesses for residents and visitors and support upcoming work to revitalise the town centre. 

The proposed parking changes involve introducing, or reducing the duration of, time restricted parking at various locations across the town centre. Changes to parking restrictions were proposed in the following locations:
• Bunn Street
• Metcalfe & Murnin Streets
• Nelson Street
• Tyrrell Street
• William & Charles Streets
• Kemp Street.

You said

Thank you to the 62 community members who provided feedback on the proposed parking changes. 

While most of the proposed changes were generally supported by the community, CN did not proceed with the proposal for six 1-hour parking spaces on Bunn Street (near Tyrrell Street) at this time, in line with community feedback. 

Next steps

The proposed changes were endorsed by Newcastle City Traffic Committee in August 2020, noting that only part of William Street will have unrestricted parking changed to 4-hour parking.  The revised parking arrangements will be implemented in the coming months.
