Parking and permits

Permit eligibility and parking policy

Permit Parking Schemes have been installed around the City Canada Bay to manage and share parking in locations of high demand. Council has four types of permit schemes in place: Resident Parking Schemes, Visitor Parking Schemes, Business Parking Schemes and Parks Parking Schemes.

There are strict rules governing permit applications and the use of permits. In accordance with the Transport for NSW (TfNSW) requirements and Council's On-Street Parking Policy, only certain properties are eligible to receive a permit.

It is the responsibility of the permit holder to ensure they renew their permit before the expiry date. Council may send a reminder via email to the address provided on your application.

Resident Parking Scheme

Resident parking permits expire on 28 February every second year

The Resident Parking Scheme allows eligible residents who have inadequate off-street parking to apply for permits to park in their street or neighbouring streets without time restriction. Non-permit holders must comply with the 1P, 2P, 3P and 4P time restrictions in these areas. The number of permits which can be issued to residents is limited by the number of off-street parking spaces which you have and the number of vehicles registered to your address.

Council granted a two week grace period to allow residents to renew their permits. Law Enforcement Officers will be authorised to enforce public infringement notices to vehicles after this period.

On-street pay parking

In 2012 on-street metered parking was introduced in key areas that were previously subject to chronic parking congestion, with high demand and little or no turnover. These areas are:

  • Everton Road, Strathfield, between Raw Square and Moseley Street
  • Rider Boulevard, Rhodes, between Oulton Avenue and Shoreline Drive
  • Hospital Road, Concord West, north of Fremont Street.

Parking meters are provided which allow payment via coins or credit card. A ticket is printed that must be displayed on the dashboard of a vehicle.

Council is also trialling pay by phone app technology. This allows users to pay for parking using their phone and does not require a physical ticket to be displayed. 

On Hospital Road users can pay for parking via CellOPark. For more information please visit
