A resident parking permit allows you to park one nominated vehicle in any street within the designated area of your address.

You can add a foreshore permit to your resident permit for an additional cost. You can then park the nominated vehicle for free along the foreshore and in council car parks near the beach. You must follow the parking time limits wherever you park.

Do you hold a Concession card?

Eligible concession card holders pay a flat fee of $26 per parking permit (this includes resident, combined, foreshore and visitor permits). To be eligible, the address details on your concession card must match the property address of your permit application and you must be the primary cardholder. More details and approved concession cards accepted can be found here Identification and Documents Required.

Check if your address is eligible

Not all properties are eligible for parking permits. If your home was built or subdivided after 1 October 2002, you may not be able to get a permit. Use our online eligibility checker before you apply.

Short stay accommodation parking

Short stay accommodation and rentals are usually rented via online providers like AirBNB, Stayz and Booking.com. Property owners can't get or keep residential parking permits (including Visitor permits) if they do not live at the property. Parking permits cannot be used for any commercial purposes.

If you have concerns about parking related to a short stay rental property, let us know. We can investigate.
