Apply for a parking permit

Not all addresses are eligible for parking permits. The year your building was constructed, its size and the parking restrictions in your street determine whether you can apply for a permit and how many you can get.

Refer to our Parking Permit Policy for more details. If you have any questions about your eligibility don't hesitate to contact us.

You can apply online, or in person by visiting one of our Customer Service Offices.

Boats, caravans, trailers and heavy or long vehicles are not eligible for residential or visitor parking permits.

Permits expire on 31 July each year.

How permits work

We have 74 parking areas, and your permit entitles you to park in time-restricted zones (1 hour or greater), in front of residential properties and in your parking permit area. Permits do not entitle you to park in paid parking, no stopping, no parking or clearway zones.

Residential permits are electronic and linked with your vehicle registration.

Visitor permits are a laminated holographic permit, and must be displayed on the car dashboard.

Information you need for your parking permit application

You must provide us with the following information:

  • your name and address
  • car registration number
  • documents that prove you reside at the property.

Required documents

Originals or photos from your smart phone that demonstrate proof of address are accepted:

  • car registration papers
  • driver’s licence
  • rates notice
  • lease agreement
  • utility bill
  • company vehicle letter
  • copy of your concession card (pension card).

All information must show the applied address on the paperwork.

Using your permit

You can only use your permit to park in front of a residential property or to park in an area nominated on the permit for longer than the time limitations stated on signs in the area.

Permits are not valid in commercial areasat parking meters or in ticket machine areas.

The issue of a permit does not guarantee the availability of a parking space to the permit holder, and does not allow the holder to contravene road rules. No exceptions will be made to any permit holder who parks in commercial or industrial areas.
