Residential and visitor parking permits

The City of Nedlands issues parking permits to residents and their visitors under certain circumstances. Permits are usually issued to residents in high-demand parking areas who do not have on-site parking or do not have sufficient on-site parking. The number of parking permits are subject to meeting the eligibility criteria. 

The City most commonly approves parking permits to residents in areas identified as high-demand parking locations. The establishment of parking permits serves to reinforce a shift to more sustainable modes of transport and minimises congestion within residential streets caused by motorists who may be utilising nearby commercial or public transport hubs.

Using your permit

Residents eligible for a parking permit(s) may park contrary to the signposted parking time restrictions of one hour or greater within the streets identified by their permit(s).

Subject to the above, the display of a valid parking permit in a vehicle does not revoke the requirement to comply with all other parking legislation, prohibitions and signage restrictions. Permits do not enable motorists to park illegally – for example, they may not disobey ‘no parking’ or ‘no stopping’ signs, nor may they park over footpaths or on other residents' verges without consent. Parking Infringement notices may be issued. 

Applying for a permit

If you reside in a street with parking restrictions and wish to apply for a permit, please read the Parking Permit information Guide that outlines the conditions of issue and use. Download the Residential and Visitor Parking Permit Application Form and send the completed form, along with all relevant documentation, to City of Nedlands, PO Box 9, Nedlands WA 6909, email council@nedlands.wa.gov.au or hand-deliver it to the Administration Centre at 71 Stirling Highway, Nedlands.
