How resident parking works
Resident parking areas allow people who live in busy streets to park near their homes. To park in a resident parking area, you need a permit.
A resident parking permit allows you to park in either resident or coupon parking spaces in your area.
A coupon parking exemption permit allows you to park in coupon parking spaces in your area – you can't park in resident parking spaces.
There is resident parking in:
- Mt Victoria
- Mt Cook
- Te Aro
Resident and coupon parking spaces are clearly signposted and our parking officers monitor them to make sure they are only used by permit holders. Having a permit does not guarantee you a parking space.
