Visitor Parking Permits

If your address qualifies for visitor permits they will be managed through your online account as well.

If your residence qualifies for a visitor permit, it will be issued automatically when a residential permit is approved. You do not have to complete a separate application for a visitor permit if you are also applying for a residential parking permit.

Thing to Remember about Visitor Parking Sessions

  •  it is important to stop your visitor’s parking session when they leave because you can have a maximum of two visitor parking sessions running at the same time per address.
  • If you forget to stop a visitor’s parking session, it will automatically end after two weeks (the maximum duration a visitor session is valid is two weeks).
  • As always, visitor permits are only valid if used within 150 metres of the address to which they are registered.

 

Enforcement of Residential Parking Zones is done primarily by photo enforcement and supplemented by our enforcement officers.
