Residential parking permits

Streetscape of Heathcote

To get a residential permit you must live in a property with no off-street parking, no reasonable opportunity to modify the property to provide parking and where directly adjacent on-street parking is time restricted.

Residents in Commercial 1 Zones are not eligible for residential parking permits.

If your property is not eligible for a residential parking permit you may wish to use one of the multistorey car parks on a permanent basis:

Permits expire each year on 30 September. There is an application fee, which is reviewed annually.

Using a residential parking permit

Your permit must be displayed when parking. The permit does not allow parking on footpaths, no standing areas or other restricted zones. Permits may not be used for boats, trailers or caravans.

Residents of new developments where developers have not provided parking will not be eligible for a permit.

Permit cancellation

Your permit is automatically cancelled after the expiry date and may be cancelled at any time if you misuse it or breach the conditions of use.
