Where can I get special parking conditions?

The special parking conditions are only available for on-street parking and council operated car parks.

Privately operated car parks

Car parks that operate behind boom gates are privately operated. There are no parking concessions in these areas.

To park in a designated disability parking space within a private car park, you must display your valid permit and pay any fees required by the car park operator.

Private car parks operate under rules determined by the private operator, and enforcement of these rules is the responsibility of designated authorised officers.

Designated disability parking spaces

Parking spaces and signs that show the symbol for people with disabilities are for the use of vehicles displaying valid permits only.

For all other vehicles, the disability symbol has the same effect as a ‘No Stopping’ sign.

Time limited parking areas

Permit holders can park in time limited parking areas for longer time periods.

Metered, coupon or ticket parking areas

Permit holders can park in metered, coupon or ticket parking areas at no charge.

No parking areas

In areas signposted as ‘No Parking’, permit holders can stop for up to 5 minutes to drop off or pick up passengers or goods.

The driver must remain within 3 metres of the vehicle.
