Public Notice of making the Regulated Parking Permit Amending Local Law 2018 for the City of Brisbane

City of Brisbane Act 2010 - Section 32

Brisbane City Council (Council) has by resolution on 5 June 2018 made a local law entitled the Regulated Parking Permit Amending Local Law 2018 (the local law), as part of its commitment to providing an accessible and connected city.

The purpose and general effect of the local law is to amend the Regulated Parking Permit Local Law 1996 to respond to the recommendations that were made in the Parking Taskforce Report. This includes the introduction of a new parking permit system, making it easier for drivers to apply for permits, which is anticipated to be implemented by mid-2019.

A range of new permits will also be offered in the new system, including carer, health and community, fleet and car-share permits, as well as two categories of short-term permits to make it easier for residents to employ tradespersons to carry out home repairs and renovations. Permits will also no longer be required to be displayed on vehicle dashboards, however residents who still prefer a paper permit on their vehicle will be able to request one, once the new parking permit system is available.

The introduction of the Regulated Parking Permit Amending Local Law 2018 follows a public consultation period, whereby more than 200 submissions were received from a number of stakeholders including State government agencies, peak bodies, and the general public. Council has listened to feedback from this consultation and made a number of changes to the original proposal, including providing longer periods for some short-term permits and continuing the practice of residential permits being valid on a street-based premise.
