Parking permit fees

Covering our costs 

Our fees help us cover the cost of issuing parking permits and maintaining resident parking signs across the City of Sydney. Permit fees are outlined below. Concession card discounts apply.

Environmental discounts

We aim to demonstrate environmental leadership and are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to address climate change.  

In 2008, the City of Sydney introduced a new pricing schedule with lower permit fees to encourage the use of cleaner vehicles.
