  1. Be on official organisation letterhead or from an organisational email address.
  2. Provide a description of the services that the organisation performs in the community.
  3. Detail days and times that the special issue permit/s are required.
  4. Detail the total number of permits being requested (consideration is based on parking availability within the scheme area).
