THE Northern Beaches Council in Sydney wants to permanently ban boat owners from parking their boat trailers in streets near their house, after holding a trial of no-parking zones. 

According to an article on the WSFM website, councillors now want to make the 11 no-parking trailer zones permanent, and will look into launching a trailer-parking permit system and creating more no-parking zones.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said:

“Boat trailers parked on the side of the road are one of our most complained about issues,”

“The trial has resulted in the relocation of all trailers at the 11 designated problem areas with 30 per cent not returning to the area again.”

The 6-month trial was launched last year and apparently saw nearly a 50% reduction in complaints.
 

The council is investigating introducing a trailer-parking permit system.
