Residential Parking Permits
In some areas of the Town of Walkerville, where there is limited available on-street parking and/or additional conflict between parking users, Council may, at its absolute discretion, give preference to local residents in order to adhere to the principles of amenity and convenience. This will be managed through the implementation of Residential Parking Permits and signposted Residential Parking Permit exempt zones.
Residential Parking Permits are issued in accordance with Council’s Residential Parking Permit Policy, linked at the bottom of this page.
To be eligible for a Residential Parking Permit, the applicant must be a resident of the Town of Walkerville, whose normal place of residence is subject to restrictive parking controls that provide for resident permit exemption. The number of parking permits that a resident may be eligible for is dependent on the amount of off-street parking available at their place of residence. There is a fee payable for each permit.
Two Types of Residential Parking Permits are available;
- Fixed Residential Parking Permits are permits that are issued with respect to specific vehicles and are not transferable to other vehicles. Any tampering, alteration or misuse of the permit will render the permit invalid.
- Transferable Residential Parking Permits are permits that are issued with respect to a residential address and are transferable to other vehicles. Any tampering, alteration or misuse of the permit will render the permit invalid.
- Additional transferable Parking Permits may be issued at the discretion of the CEO. Applications under this section must be made to the CEO in writing by the permanent resident who meets the eligibility criteria of this policy and outline the nature of the exceptional circumstances.
Permits will be issued in respect to a specific street / suburb address. Permits are not transferable from one residential parking permit exempt zone to another.
If you have any questions please contact Council on 8342 7100 or via email to email@example.com.
