Disabled Parking Permits (Accessible parking)
The City of Stonnington issues Disabled Persons Parking Permits (Accessible parking) free of charge to residents who live within the municipality and have significant ambulatory or intellectual difficulties.
There are two types of permit for persons with disability:-
- Category 1 (or blue) permits allow the vehicle to be parked in designated bays for persons with disability and allow twice the specified time in a time limited area
- Category 2 (or green) permits do not allow the vehicle to be parked in designated bays for persons with a disability, however these permits do allow vehicles to be parked in a time limited area for twice the length of time specified.
Permits are only valid for use when the person to whom the permit has been issued is in the vehicle. Permits must be displayed at all times and all details must be clearly visible to a person standing outside the vehicle. When parking in a pay/ticket parking area, permit holders must purchase and display a ticket,however twice the length of time purchased will be allowed.
Permit conditions are supplied at the time of issue and renewal of all permits. Permit holders (or their legal guardians) are responsible for ensuring that they are familiar and comply with these conditions. It should be noted that infringement notices issued as a result of lack of understanding of permit conditions may not be waived.
All applications must be completed by both the applicant and a doctor.
Generally, permits are valid for three years and temporary permits are valid for six months (depending on the disability). A new form must be lodged after a temporary permit has expired.
