Who can not apply for book of 10 scratch tickets and weekly visitor permits

If you live in a property which was subdivided after August 2011 you are not eligible for the ‘book of 10 scratchy tickets’ and ‘weekly visitors permit’.

This includes newer townhouses and apartments.

This is due to the Parking Management Policy adopted by Council in 2011, which sought to provide protection for existing residents in older properties who rely on on-street parking. Find out more about our parking policy.

Where can I park with a visitor parking permit?

With a visitor parking permit, you can park in timed parking areas in your street except for restrictions below 30 minutes and prohibited areas such as ‘no stopping’ and ‘loading zones’.

If you live on a corner property, a permit can be issued for either the front street or side street.

A permit does not guarantee there will be a parking space available in your street.

A permit is only valid for the street of issue on your parking permit and in your application form.

More information, read our Parking Management Policy (DOC 184Kb) provides further details.
