A Resident Parking permit is available to residents of eligible properties living in a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ).
All Resident Parking permits are valid for one year and start on the first day of the specified month.
The permit does not guarantee a parking space will be available and cannot be used in any area where temporary parking restrictions are in place including suspended bays. When a permit has been issued for a vehicle, that vehicle will be allowed to park within a residents parking bay in the specific CPZ the permit was issued for.

Changes to resident parking permits from 1 October 2020
From 1 October 2020 the amount you pay for a Resident Parking permit will depend on the CO2 emissions of the vehicle you are applying for, this is called emissions-based tariffs.
Vehicles which omit lower CO2 emissions or use alternative fuels are better for the environment. Vehicles with a higher CO2 emission will pay a slightly higher tariff than newer and more efficient vehicles.
A full list of the new emission-based tariffs can be found on our Resident Parking permit fees page.
