Eligibility for resident event parking permits in the Carrara Stadium Traffic Area and Robina Stadium Traffic Area are pre-determined by Council. The permits are automatically posted to eligible addresses at the end of each calendar year.
Eligibility is determined by the property location within the designated event Traffic Area and direct frontage width of that property.
Who can apply for a resident event parking permit?
You can apply for a resident event parking permit if you live in a designated event Traffic Area and have not been automatically issued with a permit.
If you already hold a resident parking permit or a visitor parking permit, you are not eligible for a resident event parking permit.
If you have damaged or misplaced a current resident event parking permit and would like to request a replacement, please visit Request replacement approval documentation for a parking permit.
Event Traffic Areas are parts of the city where timed, on-street parking controls apply during events.
The City of Gold Coast has three event Traffic Areas:
A resident event parking permit allows the resident or a visitor to park for an unlimited time at the location named on the permit, subject to conditions.
Resident event parking permit holders can park anywhere within the timed Traffic Area (subject to conditions).
Resident event parking permits can only be approved if you can meet the applicable criteria. For example, paid parking doesn't apply to the section of the road where your property is located.
Resident event parking permits are not available for heavy vehicles (vehicles in excess of 4.5 tonnes GVM or 7.5 metres in length).
