Changes to Parking Zones and Controls

Following consultation received through the North Adelaide Local Traffic Area and Parking Management Plan, we are implementing parking zone and control changes across North Adelaide to allow greater flexibility for residents, along with a residential parking permit trial.

With a view to reducing commuter parking, we will be installing time-limited parking controls in what are currently unpaid ten-hour parking (10P) bays and approximately half of the unrestricted parking areas across North Adelaide.

Ten-hour ticket parking bays such as those along Frome Road and War Memorial Drive will not be affected by these changes.

Each street has been individually assessed to ensure a practical balance between time-limited and unrestricted parking, and to address the overarching parking requirements of the community. Changes to parking controls will take effect from 1 July 2019.

Please refer to the map for areas in North Adelaide affected by the parking zone and control changes. Information on using the map can be found below.

Trial Residential Parking Permit 

The Trial Residential Parking Permit will be made available upon application to eligible North Adelaide residents, for a nominated vehicle registered to a property which has none or only one on-site parking space.

The trial permit will run concurrently with the existing Residential Parking Permit Scheme for a period of one year from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020, and will allow residents to park in:

  • Timed zones of 1 hour or more within the trial area (example below)
  • Ticketed zones of 1 hour or more within the trial area

​Vehicles holding a Trial Residential Parking Permit will not be permitted to park in signed Residential Permit Zones (examples below).

*A multi-dwelling property or group of dwellings includes units and strata groups. If your property has a shared title it is typically classed as a multi dwelling. Please note that apartment buildings are not eligible for any type of residential parking permit.

The Trial Residential Parking Permit will be available for a period of 12 months from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020, strictly limited to one permit for each address. There are 1,200 permits available in total.

Assessment of all applications is based solely on the eligibility of the property itself, irrespective of whether the applicant is a ratepayer or a tenant.

A permit fee of $100.00 plus an application fee of $32.00 will apply.
