Permit eligibility and parking policy

Permit Parking Schemes have been installed around the City Canada Bay to manage and share parking in locations of high demand. Council has four types of permit schemes in place: Resident Parking Schemes, Visitor Parking Schemes, Business Parking Schemes and Parks Parking Schemes.

There are strict rules governing permit applications and the use of permits. In accordance with the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) requirements and Council's On-Street Parking Policy, only certain properties are eligible to receive a permit.

Resident Parking Schemes

The Resident Parking Scheme allows residents who have inadequate off-street parking to apply for permits to park in their street or neighbouring streets without time restriction. Non-permit holders must comply with the 2P or 3P time restrictions in these areas. The number of permits which can be issued to residents is limited by the number of off-street parking spaces which you have and the number of vehicles registered to your address.

Resident Parking Permits are valid until 28 February 2019.
