Where can I park?
With a resident, business or visitor permit you can park in permit bays and shared bays. The signs for these bays will say 'Permit Holders only' or 'Permit Holders or Pay at Machine'.
Your permit is only valid for permit holder bays in your zone. For example, if your permit is marked with an M, you can only park in permit bays or shared bays marked with an M.
A resident, business or visitor permit does not allow you to park anywhere else.
