Fingal Bay Smart Parking

Fingal Bay Smart Parking Infrastructure Projects

Smart parking is designed to improve the turn-over of parking spaces to create more equitable access to parking in Fingal Bay. Smart parking also provides a revenue stream to support local infastructure projects. The existing resident and business Park Free Permit Scheme currently used in Nelson Bay will be extended to include paid parking at Fingal Bay. Similarly, parking guidance and payment apps will be extended to the Fingal Bay area.
