Temporary Permits are short term permits issued to allow people or organisations to park in specified areas for a short-term period. They may be issued for the following reasons:

  • publicity events
  • filming
  • commercial relocation
  • goods and material deliveries
  • short-term infrastructure works
  • resident relocation, up to three days maximum.

Parking Policy update

Council endorsed a new Parking Management Policy on 19 February 2020. Once implemented, Temporary Parking Permits will include party guests and tradespeople.

Most changes will come into effect 1 July 2021 or 1 July 2025. The new Policy is available for download.
