Road Widths

5th of November 2014

Major Amendments Package 03/2012, which came into effect on Monday, 2 December 2013, makes a number of operational changes to the Planning Scheme including to the road and carriageway widths of Access Places and Access Streets.


The width of the road reserve has been increased from 15 metres to 16 metres and the carriageway width from 6.5 metres to 8.0 metres. The changes have been made to address ongoing community issues in the balance between demand for onstreet parking and vehicle circulation, particularly for service vehicles.
