Residential parking permits

New permits, replacement or temporary permits, and paying your renewal.

You require a permit to park in specifically marked permit areas.

People who have parking restrictions outside or within 100 metres of their home can apply for a permit to park in the area to stay over the time limit.

Parking using a permit

The residential parking permit will allow you to park outside residential properties only in the area that it was issued. To find the parking area applicable to your property, view our Local parking area map.

These permits are not valid on a main road and do not exempt the holder from receiving penalties for Clearways, No Stopping, Loading Zones or other statutory offences.
