30-minute parking trial - how does it work?

This 12 month trial commenced on 1 December 2019 as per the Council’s resolution of 9 April 2019. The trial is applied to all 2 hour parking zones in the CBD only.

Customers enter the number plate registration, choose the time they plan to stay and pay for that time period. However, the system automatically reduces the fee to the value of 30 minutes. If you choose to pay and stay for 30 minutes parking will be free. If you choose to stay and pay for 2 hours you will be charged for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

The 15 minute grace period will also continue which provides car park users an additional 15 minutes grace after the paid expiry period to move their vehicle or top up their stay, within time limits.
