Blackbutt Village, Introduction of timed parking

We recently sought feedback from the community on a range of timed (not paid) parking options as part of our Local Centre upgrade.

Blackbutt Village, Introduction of timed parking

We are improving safety and the look and feel of Blackbutt Village, Orchardtown Road, New Lambton as part of our Local Centres program.

During earlier consultation we heard the availability of safe parking options is important to the local community. We recently sought feedback from local businesses, and then asked for broader community feedback on a range of options for the structure of timed (not paid) parking in the area. Parking will remain free of charge.

These options are intended to increase the turnover of parking spaces closest to the shops - making it easier to find a parking space when shopping or dining in the area.


If you are looking for all day parking, there are a range of parking spaces available within six minutes walk of the shops as detailed on this map.

Visit our project page for information on the upgrade including construction timing.

Thanks for having your say

Community feedback closed at 5pm Monday 1 August 2022. We will now review the feedback and report back to the community.
