Residential Parking Permits
6.18 In some areas of the City of Burnside, 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.
6.19 To be eligible for a Residential Parking Permit, the applicant must meet the following criteria:
- Must be a resident of the City of Burnside, whose normal place of residence is subject to restrictive parking controls that provide for resident permit exemption.
- Must demonstrate that access to, or the extent of off-street parking is either unavailable or insufficient to meet their immediate day-to-day requirements.
6.20 Should a resident not own a vehicle and not have access to off-street parking, they may apply for a permit for a friend or family member who does not normally reside with them, to facilitate visiting arrangements.
6.21 Occupiers of commercial premises who do not reside on the premises will be deemed not to be “residents” for the purpose of this policy, and as such, are not eligible for a permit unless special approval is granted by the Chief Executive Officer.
6.22 Permits will be issued only for the number of vehicles which cannot be accommodated on the property of the applicant, and can be legally parked
directly in front of the residential address for which the permit is being applied.
6.23 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.
6.24 Permits are issued with respect to specific vehicles and are not transferable to other vehicles. Any tampering or alteration of the permit will render the permit invalid.
6.25 Permits must be visibly displayed in the bottom passenger-side corner of the windscreen at all times when parked in the relevant residential parking permit exempt zone. Failure to display the permit will leave the vehicle liable to fine and/or prosecution for illegal parking.
6.26 Permits will be issued upon completion and receipt of the standard Resident Parking Permit Application Form, and provided compliance with the above conditions of eligibility is demonstrated.
