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.

Permits

Business and trade applicants can request an extended parking permit to park in the central city for one to five working days. After that, renewal is through a new application. In some cases, a special application will be considered for longer periods.

You can also request a parking hood as part of your permit application if you wish.

Parking hoods

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 you don’t return your parking hood by the end of the agreed hire period, we’ll need to charge you the normal hire cost for each day you’ve kept the hood (even if you haven’t been using it). 
  • If your hired parking hood is stolen, then you’ll have to pay for its replacement.

Fees you might encounter

On-street carpark rental
Short-term reservation per day $30.00
Long-term reservation per negotiated rate

Step 3: Council

What happens next

We’ll be in touch to discuss your application with you, if needed, or we may go ahead and grant it based on the information in your application. 

If your application is granted, you can pick up your permit and pay for it (and parking hood, if applicable) at the Customer Services counter. The counter is located on the ground floor of our offices at 260 Angelsea Street and is open between 7.45am and 5pm Monday to Friday. 

You can park free for 10 minutes in the car park on Anglesea Street behind our building.
