How do I apply for a parking permit?
Residents get a parking permit by applying to the Council and paying the set fee. When applying for a resident parking permit you must provide documentary proof of where you live and proof of your legal connection with the subject car. Accordingly, you must:
1. Provide originals of at least two of the following documents showing your home address and that this is in the resident parking area:
• current driver's licence
• tenancy documents in your name
• your name on the electoral roll
• utility account (gas, electricity, water etc)
• bank or credit card statement
• current vehicle registration paper
• home/contents insurance
• rental bond board receipt.
2. Produce the vehicle's registration papers showing that it is registered to you. Note: Parking permits cannot be issued for a truck, a bus or for an unregistered vehicle. The Council cannot issue a resident parking permit to a non-resident, even if they are a ratepayer of the City of Randwick or if they run a business in the City.
