Visitor/Tradesperson Parking permits

A temporary parking permit for non-residents

Visitor/Tradesperson Parking Permits are available for residents living in Resident Parking Scheme areas. They allow non-residents to park their vehicle beyond the signposted limit, free of charge, in areas that are signposted ‘Permit Holders Excepted’.

There are multiple Resident Parking Scheme Areas in Randwick Council. Parking permits are issued for a specific area and are valid only within the area shown on the permit.

The resident must be the applicant for the permit, with the permit given to the visitor or tradesperson to display on their vehicle.

Permits are issued to the specific registration number of the visitor or tradesperson. A Visitor/Tradesperson Parking Permit cannot be transferred amongst different visitors or tradespeople who may be visiting your address.

Permits are issued for a minimum of 1 month to a maximum of 3 months.
