Resident Parking Scheme

Resident Parking Schemes provide increased opportunity for residents to park their vehicles on the street adjacent to their properties, by exempting them from parking time restrictions.

Council has Residential Parking Schemes in a range of streets across the Mosman area where permits are issued to eligible residents. These permits are valid from 1 November until 31 October of the following year, subject to satisfying the eligibility criteria. To check if your property is within a Residential Parking Scheme area please refer to the Residential Parking Scheme map and then proceed to the online system for processing. Eligibility is based on the number of off-street parking spaces on the property.

All properties located in Residential Parking Scheme areas are eligible for Visitor Parking Permits, regardless of their eligibility for a Residential Parking Permit.

Properties are entitled to a maximum of 40 permits per year (1 November to 31 October). The first 10 permits are free, then there is a $3 fee for all additional permits. Visitor Permits are valid for a 24 hour period and you need to enter the vehicle registration number when purchasing the Visitor Permit.
