Apply for a Resident Parking Permit

Resident parking permit overview

A Resident Parking Permit exempts a resident's vehicle from parking time limits.

However, not every residence in the North Sydney area is entitled to a permit. 

There are three parking zones and the entitlements are different within each zone. The three zones are then divided into Resident Parking Areas. All Resident Parking Permits are only valid for the one area their property is located in.

In most cases, Council issues a digital permit – there is no sticker to attach to your car.

Some physical permits may still be issued, such as Shared Permits which can be shared between two residents of the same dwelling, provided all other eligibility requirements are met.

Parking permits are valid for 12 months from 1 April to 31 March the following year. Renewals are sent out in mid February.

Parking for residents' visitors

Each property is entitled to purchase 30 Visitor Parking Permits a year. Each permit is valid for one day. They can only be used in the same parking area as a standard Resident Parking Permit.
