Council provides accessible public parking for people with a disability throughout the local government area and monitors its usage.
Residents can also apply for an on street accessible parking space outside their residential address (conditions apply).
Accessible Parking Spaces
If you hold a Mobility Parking Scheme Permit issued by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), you can park for an unlimited period of time in Council's Resident Parking Scheme areas and you have access to a number of other concessions.
This applies to resident parking zones with meters or ticket machines.
A full list of concessions can be found on the RMS website
We are currently working on a map of accessible parking spaces in main street areas.
Applying for an accessible parking space
Mobility Parking Scheme Permit holders can apply for an accessible parking space, subject to conditions.
Please note that these spaces are not reserved for private use, anyone with an RMS-issued Mobility Parking Scheme Permit may also use these spaces.
The application must also be reported to the Traffic Committee for approval and subsequently reported to Council for final approval.
This takes at least six weeks to process.
