Resident parking permits

Resident parking permits provide a way to fairly share on-street spaces between different users, especially in areas where parking is in short supply.

If you live or operate a business in one of the streets within a residential parking zone, you can apply for a permit that gives you exemption from parking restrictions.

Residential parking strategy

Managing parking on residential streets is increasingly important as Auckland grows and intensifies. Overcrowded parking particularly affects suburbs on the central city fringe, where streets are used by commuters for daily parking and some older properties lack off-street parking.

Auckland Transport (AT) plans to make greater use of parking zones within residential areas with high demand, as part of our region-wide parking strategy.
