Parking permits

Brisbane City Council regulates vehicle parking in Brisbane to ensure residents have access to on-street parking across our city. There are a number of regulated parking permit scheme areas across Brisbane, including traffic areas, parking control areas and parking areas. Large signs are located on the boundary of the areas. Regulated parking permit areas use smaller parking signs in streets where parking restrictions apply.

If you live in a regulated parking permit scheme area, you may be eligible to apply for a parking permit. Find out more about parking permits, including resident parking, short-term and visitor permits. Also find out about commercial vehicle and disability parking permits in Brisbane.
