Parking permit area maps

Changes to existing parking areas

The City of Sydney is divided into parking permit areas. Permits are valid only in the area where you live or operate a business. We have started reducing the parking areas across the City from 32 to 16.

Some of the changes will increase the area where a permit holder can park legally, and some confusing boundaries will be removed.

The City will notify permit holders who may be affected by boundary changes in writing.

Click on the map below to find out about parking changes specific to your area.

Find out how the boundary changes might affect you with the City's new parking policy.
