On-street parking

1. Permissive Parking

You may park a vehicle for the period indicated on a permissive parking sign. A number immediately to the left of the letter P indicates that you must not park on the length of road, or in the area, continuously for longer than the number of hours shown. A number, together with the word minute, immediately to the right of the letter P indicates that you must not park on the length of road, or in the area, continuously for longer than the number of minutes shown.

When the word Meter, Ticket or Coupon is added to a permissive parking sign, you must pay the relevant parking fee as indicated on the parking meter, ticket or parking coupon.

Where times of operation are shown on the sign, the sign only applies at those times.

 

 

2. Angle parking

Along with time limits there are regulation requirements for angle parking.  The majority of on-street parking in Byron Bay requires vehicles to park with the front of the vehicle to the kerb at all times.  Signage will indicate this requirement with the words 90° Angle Parking Front to Kerb or other regulatory signage that may say  ‘Nose in’ or ‘Front in at all times’. Similarly, 45° Angle Parking is also front to kerb in the Shire.

Where there is no signage for angle parking, parallel parking should be observed.
