Residents Permit

Residents Permits are available to those whose main residence is in an approved zone, subject to certain conditions. The permit allows residents living next to or in close proximity to a Council operated car park to park within the specified car park. Holders of a valid resident’s permit do not require to purchase a pay and display ticket when parking in the designated car park.

A permit does not “reserve” or guarantee a space available in the car park.

Permits will not be issued to owners or employees of business premises or to those whose residential property has private parking.
