26 February 2020: Street Play

I am very excited to announce that we will be trialling a new street play initiative in Waverley. Participating streets will be closed to traffic each Sunday afternoon to allow for children and families to play and socialise safely. With so many families living in apartments, this program will utilise our outdoor spaces and bring communities closer together. To learn more about the trial, see the news section on our website.

Trial of Overnight Parking

Overnight parking is at a premium in Waverley, so to take the pressure off residents, we have endorsed for public exhibition a new monthly overnight parking permit fee for Waverley residents at Hollywood Avenue Car Park, Bondi Junction. Residents will soon be able to apply for a monthly pass to park in the secure car park at a discounted rate between the hours of 5pm–9am. Not only is this a service to our residents, we also think this is a great way to utilise the parking spaces Council provides. For more, see the news section of our website.

Surf Safety

Following the tragic drowning on 16 February at North Bondi, I urge our visitors and residents to be safe at our beaches and along our coastlines by heeding the signs. Please also listen to and respect our Lifeguards and Rangers. They are there for your safety and often put their lives at risk to protect the public, so please always follow their instructions.

Paula Masselos,
Mayor of Waverley
