Parking is in high demand throughout the Woollahra Municipality. Parking restrictions in accordance with the New South Wales Road Rules are enforced by Council's Rangers and comprise two types of regulations, statutory and sign posted. Statutory restrictions must be adhered to by all motorists in accordance with the New South Wales Road Rules, whether sign posted or not. All sign posted restrictions must also be complied with.
Council operates a resident parking permit scheme to help alleviate parking congestion in busy areas and to give residents who have little or no off-street parking preferential access to the on-street parking resource.
View the list of streets included in each Resident Permit Parking Zone (PDF). Important note: This list is a guide only. Not every section of each street on the list is included in the associated Resident Parking Zone. If your street appears on the list it does not guarantee your property will be eligible for a Resident Parking Permit. Some properties are not included in the Resident Parking Scheme due to Development Application consent conditions or other Council conditions. You are responsible for checking the on-street signage and confirming your eligibility for a resident parking permit prior to parking your vehicle in any of the listed streets.
You will be able to tell if a resident parking scheme is operating in your area by the distinctive signs on the street. If you are unsure if your property qualifies for the scheme, contact Council's Customer Services Department on 9391 7000. Download the resident parking permit application form (PDF).
