Parking change in Byron Bay CBD

Queenslanders will feel right at home. But for locals, there could be some confusion.

From next Tuesday, reverse angle parking comes to an end in the Byron Bay CBD, to be replaced by 45-degree front to kerb parking.

But for those drivers who don’t read the new signs or take note of the new line markings on the road, Byron Council is applying a two-week grace period and will not issue tickets for parking the wrong way.

Tickets, however, will still be issued to drivers for staying beyond the time limit and other offences.

The changes apply to Jonson, Lawson, Fletcher, Marvell, Carlyle, Kingsley and Byron streets.

In Lawson Street between the two roundabouts, angle parking will be replaced by parallel parking on the northern side of the street.
