Trade parking permits

Trade parking permits are for tradespeople who are working within a residential parking zone.

Parking with a trade parking permit

The permit allows you to park within a permit holders only bay within the residential parking zone you are working in.

You can also park within a shared use bay. This is a bay for permit holders and motorists displaying a valid pay and display ticket. 

The vehicle for which a parking permit is being applied for must not exceed 2.3 metres in height and/or 5.3 metres in length.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to check their vehicle dimensions before applying for a parking permit.

If a permit is issued and it is found that the vehicle exceeds the above dimensions the permit will be cancelled and any appropriate payment refund will be made. Vehicles seen displaying a cancelled permit during the operational hours of a Resident Parking Zone (RPZ) will be issued with a penalty charge notice (PCN).  

Please read the full permit terms and conditions in the application form before making your application.
