Public engagement – Draft Scotland Island Traffic Management Plan

Council plans to commence public engagement on the new draft Scotland Island Traffic Management Plan so we can safely manage vehicles on the Island and prevent excessive damage to the roads.

We will be coming to Scotland Island on 9th December 2018 to have a public meeting to explain the reasons behind the need for a plan, how we are going to implement it, the benefits to the residents, and the timeframe for the plan to be fully implemented.

The Key actions under the draft plan are:

  • Restrict access to the roads on the Island to approved vehicles holding a Scotland Island permit that are registered in NSW.
  • Introduce safety improvements to facilitate the conditional registration of some of the existing unregistered and therefore illegally used vehicles.
  • Require all operators of Vehicles with Permits to hold a valid NSW licence.
  • Parking is to be restricted on roads to designated parking areas, as the proposed future road width will eliminate legal on street parking except for areas constructed for this purpose.

Council is currently writing to all property owners and tenants and other key stakeholders to invite them to provide written comments on the Draft Traffic Management Plan which will be provided with the written notification. Enquiries are to be directed to me via 1300 434 434 and I personally extend an invitation to the Scotland Island Community to attend the Public Meeting on Sunday 9 December 2018 at 9.30am for 10.00am start at the Fire Station.

Yours sincerely

Phillip Devon
