Save the John Street Lidcombe Council Car Park

Save the John Street Lidcombe Council Car Park

We the Residents of Cumberland City Council call on Council to keep our car park public and free.

Why is this important?

The John Street Council Car Park is an important asset to our Community. Our small businesses rely on the Council Car Park for customer parking. Without easy access to parking customers don't stop and shop.

Our Seniors and less Mobile Residents need the Car Park for access to Medical Appointments and the Chemist. Rapid expansion of High Rise Development in Lidcombe has increased our need for public car parking. John Street under normal conditions is congested and street parking is in greater demand.
A reduction in train connections to neighboring suburbs encourages residents to drive and join the train in Lidcombe.

Our Community can't rely on Developers to provide our infrastructure.

  • Because very soon we want be able to see Auburn or Ledcombe from the amount of unites we're going to have plus the amount of cars
  • No more selling off Lidcombe to greedy property developers!

Thank you for supporting our Community in Lidcombe, Cumberland Councillors voted to stop the sale of our important community asset the Council Car Park in John St Lidcombe. The vote was 7 Councillors opposing the sale (6 Labor and Independent Greg Cummings), Liberal and OLC Councillors were in favour of the sale with 1 Liberal Councillor abstaining because of a perceived conflict of interest.
The item was dealt with in closed session, despite Covid restrictions over 200 signatures were presented to Council in hard copy and a large number of written submissions, we are keeping the online Petition open in the event of a rescission motion. Again, we give you our heartfelt thanks for supporting our cause.
