Supporting documentation for parking permit applications

To ensure Council can process your application as quickly as possible, it is important have the correct supporting documentation to submit with your application. The documentation must be in your name and address, as on your application.

Provide copies of your documentation (not originals) when submitting your application. Council cannot send documents back to you.

    • your name but has a different address:
      • you must provide your driver’s licence showing the same address as the permit application
    • a different name and different address to the permit application:
