Council defines a Residential property as being a property that is used 100 per cent for residential purposes. Properties that have a mixed use, such as apartments on upper floors and a café, shop or business on the ground floor, are not considered residential.

Permits are not valid if the vehicle is parked in front of or along the side of a non-residential property, including:

  • commercial
  • retail
  • mixed use
  • industrial
  • community land uses
  • off street car parks.

Permits must not be used for business parking purposes.

How to display the Permit

he permit must be clearly displayed on the lower passenger side of the front windscreen with all permit details clearly visible

  • If permits are not displayed correctly, they may not be visible to the parking enforcement officers and this may lead to the vehicle receiving a parking infringement notice.
  • Parking infringement notices may not be withdrawn if a permit is not correctly displayed.

Permits must not be copied, reproduced or tampered with.

If we identify a case of parking permit misuse the matter may be referred to Victoria Police for investigation as a criminal offence.
