Holders of local parking permits are responsible for ensuring they comply with the following permit conditions:
- To obtain a residential, visitor or temporary parking permity, you must provide proof of residency and that you have a current registered vehicle.
- You must clearly display the permit inside the vehicle. See instructions on the back of your permit.
- Residential and business parking permits are issued to a specific vehicle. Permits are not transferable from person to person. If you have changed address or vehicle details, you must notify Council.
- A permit allows you to park legally in a designated area. This area is numbered on your parking permit. Here is a map of the parking_zones (77.30kB) in Yarra
- If your street is on the boundary of another parking area you are permitted to park on both sides of the street. If your street is on the boundary of another municipality you can't park on the other side as you may incur a fine from the neighbouring council.
- A permit does not allow you to park in designated shopping strips. Please refer to the information on the back of your permit.
- A permit does not allow you to park in time restricted spaces marked under one hour or in ticket machine and parking metered areas, unless specified. Please ensure you read all parking signs carefully.
- Being a permit holder does not guarantee you a parking space.
- It is an offence under the Validity of Parking Permits local law to use or obtain a parking permit that has not legally been issued to you. Under this local law you could be fined for:
- selling, giving away or renting any parking permit
- accepting or using any parking permit that has not been officially administered by Council
- forging or counterfeiting any vehicle permit or knowingly distributing a forged or counterfeit vehicle permit.
