    Revised Framework (draft) exhibition closed

    Council has worked closely with community groups and stakeholders to clarify key elements of the Manly Parking Permit Scheme. Changes have been made to clarify the number of parking permits residents will be eligible for and to simplify visitor and tradesperson permits.

    The revised framework will be specific to the Manly Parking Permit Scheme and includes:

    • eligibility for residents to apply for two permits tied to vehicle registration, regardless of available off street parking
    • eligibility for residents to apply for an additional permit in extenuating circumstances (to be reviewed in three years)
    • a proposed multi-use permit on application that can be used by visitors, tradespeople and carers (to be reviewed in 12 months)
    • eligibility for businesses to apply for one permit (registered to the business or business owner).

    The fees and charges previously adopted by Council currently apply to resident, business, support worker and car share parking permits. The fee proposed for the multi-use parking permit will be presented to Council for endorsement.
