Parking Zones and Permits

Parking Permits are available to assist residents, construction workers, traders and people with disabilities to have access to appropriate parking close to where they live, work and attend medical appointments. Parking zones indicate where specialist road users such as bus, taxi, delivery, mail van, and truck drivers can safely stop and provide their services to residents and businesses.

Parking Zones

Accessible (Disabled) Parking Bays

Accessible parking bays allow drivers or passengers with a disability and organisations that transport people with disabilities to more easily park in areas with a high demand for parking. In the City of Whitehorse, holders of Category 1 Accessible Parking Permits (blue in colour) can park in:

  • Accessible Parking Bays for the time indicated
  • Ticket machine areas without payment
  • Ordinary parking bays for double the period shown on the parking sign and payment of any initial applicable fee.

Holders of Category 2 Accessible Parking Permits (green in colour) can park in any ordinary parking bay for double the period shown on the parking sign and payment of any initial applicable fee.

NOTE: The rules for Category 1 permit holders may differ from municipality to municipality.

Residential Parking Zones

Residential parking zones cover some areas of the city to provide a balance of on-street parking opportunities for local residents, their visitors and other parking demands. Council’s residential parking permit scheme is available for residents to obtain permits to park in these zones.

These vehicles include taxis, buses, trucks, vans, utilities and other vehicles used for delivery who have permanent signs fixed to both sides of the vehicle. Note: magnetic signs are not permitted.

If there is no time limit on the Loading Zone sign, then 30 minutes is the maximum time that an authorised vehicle can park in a loading zone.
