Parking renewals

The recent change to resident parking permit terms and conditions on 1 September 2020 has been put on hold for further review. Your permit will be valid all day in the zone that you live in and up to three hours in any other zone from the time that you first park.

Permit renewals

If your permit was issued before 27 November 2019, then you will need to apply for a new permit after it expires. There will be a 7 day grace period after the expiry date of your permit.
