How do I apply for a visitor parking permit?

Visitor parking permits allow people visiting your property to park near your house. If you are a resident you can apply for a maximum of 1 visitor permit per property.

Visitor permits are not designed for use by residents. If you are a resident at the property and are wanting to use the permit for yourself or someone else living in the property, you need to apply for a residential permit.
