Resident and visitor permits

Parking schemes are in place on some roads to improve parking for residents and visitors.

Unless you have a permit to park on these roads, parking is only for the limited period that is indicated on road signs.

Properties within these parking schemes are entitled to up to three residents’ permits for vehicles registered at the property, as well as one visitors’ permit.

Residents’ parking schemes are in place on:

  • Archer Road
  • Beaufort Street
  • Oakly Road
  • Other Road (part)
  • Prospect Hill, South Street
  • Station Way

The Smallwood road group which includes:

  • Lodge Road
  • Marsden Road
  • Millsborough Road
  • Mount Street, Summer Street
  • Union Street

Smallwood permit holders can park in any of the roads in that group.

A former scheme in Oakly Road stopped in March 2014.
