residential parking

The City of Vincent has now moved to an electronic parking permit system (e-permits). An e-permit account can be created by eligible residents who meet the criteria outlined in the Parking Permits Policy 3.9.3.

Our lively urban villages, fantastic facilities and our proximity to the Perth city centre means that the pressure on parking in recent years has grown. Managing parking is a challenge for all inner-city councils. As Vincent continues to grow and prosper, the demand for finite kerbside space will continue to increase and effective planning and management is critical going forward. Following careful consideration of community feedback, together with analysis of what other comparable councils are doing to manage their parking challenges, at its 20 September 2016 meeting, Council revised the City's Parking Permits Policy 3.9.3.

With an e-permits account:

  • The e-permit can be used for both residents and/or visitors.
  • Your e-permit(s) is still only valid within a particular zone.
  • The e-permit account can be created by either the owner, managing agent or tenant. *Note that only one account can be created per property.
  • There is no change to the number of eligible permits per type of dwelling, where a house may continue to have up to three (3) Active Permits.
  • The e-permit allows vehicles, once they are 'Active' to park in areas designated “Residential Permit Holders Excepted” within the relevant zone.
  • The e-permit also exempts vehicles from complying with parking time restrictions, 1 hour or more, in the relevant zone so issued.
  • The e-permit does not authorise parking in the following areas; Disabled (ACROD) bays, No Stopping Zones, Clearways, 15/30 minute Parking Bays, Loading Zones and Ticket Machine Zones.
  • It should be noted that the e-permit does not exempt the driver from the provisions of the Road Traffic Code.

Apply for a Residential Parking Permit

An e-permit account can only be created when you produce the following documents:

  • Proof of Occupancy e.g. your current rate notice or current rental agreement.

This can be emailed to mail@vincent.wa.gov.au, with the address in the subject line or provided in person to the Customer Service team located in the Library and Local History Centre.

Residential parking restrictions apply in some areas and failure to have an 'Active' e-permit may result in an Infringement Notice being issued.
