  • The support worker’s vehicle is exempt from certain parking restrictions when the permit is displayed while the support worker is doing home visits.
  • Permits are not issued for permanent/overnight parking of service provider vehicles.
  • The permit exempts support workers from signposted time limits and fees in the City of Sydney and Inner West council areas.
  • The permit does not allow you to park your vehicle in clearway, no stopping, no parking, bus, loading, work, truck or disabled parking zones.
  • Accredited support worker organisations must apply on behalf of support worker staff.

Who can apply?

Service providers must apply for permits on behalf of support workers. Check you have all of the supporting documents below before applying. To apply for a new permit, you will need:

  • There is no limit to the number of support worker parking permits that may be issued to service providers that employ support workers.
  • Individuals that operate as a service provider will be issued with 1 permit. 
  • If the permit is no longer in use by the service provider or is not expected to be used for a period of 3 months or more, the permit should be returned to the City of Sydney.
