Step 1: You
What you need to know
For general information about parking in the central city, including mobility parking and freedom camping, see our parking page. You may also wish to check out our pay a parking ticket page.
Other related permissions
Developers should also check out our Traffic Management Plans application page, and our corridor access and use of footpath space request pages – and our workplace travel planning page.
Business and trade applicants can request an extended parking permit to park in the central city. If an application is for a period of more than five working days, then these will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
You can also request a parking hood as part of your permit application if you wish.
You can use these with vehicles, waste bins (and/or other elements as specified) when they are placed in a parking space. The hoods are displayed while work is in progress. (Work in progress is defined as construction or premises maintenance work, or relocation). A fee for the parking hood is charged.
Conditions and fees
- Please follow the conditions of your permit and make sure its use, or your activities, do not cause public safety issues.
- You must display the blue copy of the permit for a reserved parking space at all times, otherwise you risk getting fined.
- If your hired parking hood is stolen, then you’ll have to pay for its replacement.
