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's local area. Annual 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, we introduced a new pricing schedule with lower annual permit fees to encourage the use of cleaner vehicles.

Green vehicle guide rating

The scaled annual permit fees (see below) are based on the star rating of your vehicle in the federal government's green vehicle guide (GVG).
