Parking for permit holders is available Monday to Friday in designated car parks. Purchasing an employee/business permit does not guarantee you a parking space.

Parking sessions are now virtual, meaning that you no longer need to display a permit in your vehicle. To apply for, or renew a parking session visit the Permit Smarti (link opens in new window) website and select the employee or business parking session. You will need to send proof of eligibility in the form of a letter on headed paper from your employer, stating that you are an employee. This can be either uploaded to the Permit Smarti app or sent in to us at
