If you're planning to dine out in the Inner West, your night just got a whole lot easier with news that the council will be switching off parking meters.
From 7pm tonight, the Inner West Council will be turning off meters along Norton Street in Leichhardt, Darling Street in Rozelle and Balmain will see street parking free after dark.
The move comes as Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne's pre-election promises are enacted in an effort to bolster the night life in the area.
"The parking meters have been reprogrammed and signs updated, so the parking meters will now be turned off after 7pm every night," he said in a statement.
In September last year, free 30 minute parking was introduced to all of Leichhardt's main streets for a similar reason.
