Parking

Permits

I live in the residential parking zone in Elizabeth Vale. Do I need a permit?

As the Lyell McEwin Hospital is situated amongst residential housing in Elizabeth Vale, it has resulted in the introduction of residential parking permit zones between 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.

To avoid expiation fees, local residents are issued a maximum of two annual permits to each property, which must be displayed in the windscreen of your vehicle. If you are a new tenant, contact Council to request a permit (playford@playford.sa.gov.au).

Can I park my truck or bus on the street?

If your truck or bus weighs more than 4.5 tonne or greater than 7.5m or more in length on a residential road, it is not allowed to be parked for periods greater than one hour – you may receive an expiation fee otherwise.

Can I park my truck or bus on my property?

If your truck or bus weighs more than 3 tonnes, parking it on your property may be considered a development, and you may receive an expiation fee as it is not deemed necessary for domestic use.

To park such a vehicle on your property, you must lodge a development application to Council (8256 0333 or playford@playford.sa.gov.au).

Disabled parking

Council does not issue disabled persons parking permits.
