Apply for a Resident Parking Permit

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

There are two types of resident parking permits available:

  • Time Limit Exemption Parking Permits – allows you to park your vehicle and overstay the time limit in a time restricted parking area in the street that the permit applies.
  • Resident Only Parking Permits – only available to residents with no off-street parking and who have access to an existing permit(s). No new Resident Only Parking Permits will be issued to new applicants. 

A parking permit does not guarantee you a space to park your vehicle in the street for which the permit is issued.

  • provide proof that you live in the eligible property
