Parking permits

About our resident parking scheme

It's often difficult to find a parking space, even in your own street. Council is working hard to improve parking for our residents and to increase the availability of on-street parking in the local area.

Resident Parking Schemes operate in parts of Randwick City; residents who live within the boundaries of a Resident Parking area can make use of the scheme by applying for a permit.

A Resident Parking Permit allows you to park free of charge, for an unlimited time, in the parking zone designated on the permit, in areas that are signposted ‘Permit Holders Excepted’.

Who’s eligible?

To be eligible for a Randwick City Council Resident Parking Permit, you must demonstrate that you live in a residential property in a Resident Parking Scheme area, and prove your ownership or private use of the vehicle you’re seeking the permit for.

Parking permits are only issued for vehicles where off street parking is not available. We are unable to issue resident parking permits to non-residents, even if you are a ratepayer or business owner in our area.

Resident Parking Permits cannot be issued to long or heavy vehicles (from 7.5 metres in length and longer; and from 4.5 tonnes, and heavier), trucks, buses, tractors and trailers.

If you have more than three off-street parking spaces you will not be eligible for a resident parking permit. The number of existing permits already issued to the property will also decrease the number of parking permits you are entitled to. Properties approved by Council after 14 June 2013 may not be eligible – check your development consent or contact us for more information.
