Apply for resident permit or coupons Apply for resident permit or coupons

If you live within one of our resident parking areas, you can apply for permits and coupons that give an exemption from parking restrictions.

Submitting an application for resident parking permits or coupons does not exempt the vehicle from parking restrictions. Parking signs and restrictions must be adhered to until the parking permit has been granted and activated, or the vehicle may incur a parking infringement.
