Resident parking permits

2 hour parking sign 8am to 6pm

The purpose of resident permits is to give eligible residents greater opportunity to park within the designated parking permit area, however they do not guarantee that a space is available.

Resident parking permits allow you to park without restrictions in a designated area on the street you live on. However, the permit does not allow you to park in 'no stopping' areas, car parks, loading zones, or parking spaces with timed restrictions without a signed permit exemption.

A resident permit holder will be able to transfer their resident permit on a temporary basis to another vehicle within the household or a genuine visitor to the residence.

You can read our Parking permit policy to find out more.

Who can apply

To apply for a resident parking permit, you must live on a street that has timed parking restrictions with permit exemptions.

Multi-units (three or more dwellings per lot, apartments etc) built after 18 August 2020 will not be eligible for a residential permit.

Properties that have a mixed use (i.e., apartments on upper floors and a café, shop or business on ground floor) are not considered eligible residential properties.
