There are also other changes which relate to the number of permits each resident can apply for.

A tradie pulls up outside a house and a male resident walks over to hand him a multi-use permit. The tradie sticks it onto his windscreen and you see a close up of how it looks.

Eligible residents can now apply for Two residential permits and One multi-use permit.

The multi-use permit allows you to have tradies or visitors park at your home and not be restricted by time limits. These should be displayed using a transferrable permit holder.

A male resident shows how to remove the residential parking permit and sticks it to their car windscreen.

Your residential permit will need to be stuck to your windscreen immediately.

Once your new scheme area commences, the old parking permits will no longer be valid, so it’s important that you display it on time.
