Residential Parking Permits

Council provides residential parking permits for residents who live in streets with parking restrictions.

Permits expiring 31 October 2023 will be valid until 30 November 2023. This will allow sufficient time for the receipt and display of the new permits.

Permits are being printed and scheduled to be posted out toward the end of October. Permits for carers and Prescribed Accommodation (Rooming houses) will be issued on receipt of an eligible application. A letter has been sent out to all carer permit holders, and to the owners of rooming houses (as the owners must apply for these, not the tenants).

If the current permit is displayed, no enforcement will occur until 30 November 2023. Until this date, all permit holders still have the responsibility to display their current permit as required.

All permit holders must display their new permits upon receipt, or from 30 November 2023, whichever occurs first.

If your permit becomes too faded for view, a replacement will be issued upon return of the original permit to Council.

Please read if you are eligible, and conditions of use(PDF, 657KB) before applying for a residential parking permit.

An additional permit may require payment. A tax invoice will be issued once the additional permit has been assessed and approved. The permit will then be sent out once payment has been made.

Existing permit holders who would like to apply for a carer or additional carer’s permit, please select 'New permit' at the online option.
