Trade permits: where to park

Your trade parking permit is only valid for the parking zone for which you applied.

Where to park

You can park in the following bays at the specified times:

Parking bay Time
Resident 8am to 5.30pm
Paid-for 8.30am to 6.30pm
Shared-use 8.30am to 6.30pm

Streets bordering two parking zones

If you want to park in a street which borders two zones, you need to identify which side of the road you want to park on and purchase a permit for the applicable zone.

Failure to park on the correct side of the road may result in a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

Virtual parking permit

A trades permit is a 'virtual', digital permit, so there is nothing that needs to be displayed in the vehicle whilst parked.


A Marshal can check the validity of a trade parking permit by checking the details with their handheld devices.

 A PCN may be issued if:

  • it is not apparent to the Marshal that the vehicle/permit is being used by a tradesperson carrying out works or services to premises,
  • or if the permit is being used in any location other than a resident, shared-use or paid-for parking bay in the zone for which the permit applies.
