Along with parking meters comes increased fines.
A recent article in The Daily Telegraph listed Willoughby Council in 6th spot (out of the 42 Sydney Councils) for parking fine revenue.
The downside of this initiative is having parking meters in residential areas. The upside (unless you are one fined) is more revenue for Council to spend on public services
There will be a future article outlining the proposed changes to parking across Willoughby.
