Parking permits

Residents of Unley may be eligible for a residential parking permit.

There are two types of permits available. The type of parking permit you will be issued is determined by the parking controls in your street, adjacent to your home.

A parking permit does not guarantee you a space to park your vehicle.

A parking permit allows you to either:

  • Park your vehicle and overstay the time limit in a time restricted parking area,
  • And/or allows you to park your vehicle in a Resident Only permit zone.

How to apply

To apply for a residential parking permit, you must:

  • provide proof that you live in the eligible property
  • provide proof of all vehicles registered to that property
  • complete the application

Proof that you live in the property

This can be a document that contains your name and address. This could be;

  • A copy of your tenancy agreement
  • Your current Driver's Licence
  • A utility bill,
  • Or a current bank statement.

Proof of all vehicles registered at the property

You can provide us with a copy of the current vehicle registration certificate.

You need to provide the vehicle registration certificate of all vehicles garaged at the property.

If the vehicle you are using is not registered to your address, but is being garaged at your property, you can provide us with a signed statutory declaration from the registered owner.

This declaration should state that you have sole use of the vehicle listed on this application and will need to be signed by a Justice of the Peace.

Assessment conditions

Parking permit applications are assessed on:

  • The parking controls in the street adjacent to the property
  • The number of parking spaces on the property

Multi-dwelling residences

If you live in a multi-dwelling residence, such as an apartment, or block of units, where the development of your property was granted on or after November 1st ,2013, you will not be eligible for a residential parking permit.

Property development

If the applicant lives in a property where the parking spaces available on the property have been reduced due to development (ie conversion of a garage/carport to a habitable room or storage), then we may assess your eligibility based on the parking capacity on the property, before the development took place.
