Welcome to our online system for residential, multi-use and business parking permits for those living in the Manly area.

The Manly Parking Permit Scheme Framework aims to improve parking for residents and other users in locations where there is insufficient off-street parking and where on-street parking is restricted. The Scheme was adopted by Council in 2019.

Now into it's second year, it was developed in consultation with the Manly residential and business community to address the parking demands in the Manly area.

Note - this new scheme does not affect beach parking permits and Council will no longer issue boat, trailer or caravan parking permits through the Manly parking permit scheme.
