Resident parking permits

The City of Parramatta provides residents who live in specific areas of the Parramatta Local Government Area (LGA), especially near large employment areas and educational facilities, special parking permits.

The permit allows you to park your vehicle conveniently without the risk of parking violations, by parking your vehicle within the signed time restrictions within the designated resident parking scheme area.

If you are an eligible resident, you can apply for two resident parking permits and a visitor parking permit for each home.

For more details on your suburb and street, visit permit areas street guide.

All permits are valid for one year from the date of issue, after which a new application must be submitted.

Permits are only valid while you live within the Parramatta LGA.

You will need to call our Customer Contact Centre on (02) 9806 5050 to cancel the permit if you move out of the area.
