Disabled parking permits

We offer free disabled parking permits as part of the state-wide Disabled Parking Permit Scheme. Permits are available for people with significant mobility, intellectual, or psychological disabilities, where the disability creates a need for specific parking access.

Types of permits

The Disabled Parking Permit Scheme has two types of permits:

Category 1 — Blue permit

This permit allows the permit holder to park in an allocated disabled parking bay. It also allows parking in time restricted parking areas for twice the permitted time displayed on the parking sign. For example, in a 2P area the permit holder would be permitted to park for four hours.

Category 2 — Green permit

A green permit allows the permit holder to park in any normal parking bay for twice the permitted time displayed on the parking sign. This permit does not allow the permit holder to park in an allocated disabled bay.

A Disabled Parking Permit does not allow the holder to park where there is a red restrictive parking sign such as No Stopping, Loading Zone, Bus Zone etc.

How do I apply?

Every permit and renewal of a permit must be applied for in writing on the application form, which is available to download below.

If the application is for a Category 1 — Blue permit, then the application must be accompanied by a copy of the permit applicant’s driver’s licence.

Any incomplete applications will not be processed and will be returned to the applicant.

It is the responsibility of the permit holder to ensure that their disabled parking permit is renewed before it expires. Council does not send out reminders prior to expiry of the permit. Applications for renewal must be received at least 14 days prior to expiring to ensure they are processed before the permit expires.
