Residential Parking Permits

The City of Mitcham may issue residents with parking permits who live in a street where timed parking restrictions apply. Residents seeking a parking permit must complete and submit an application.

A residential parking permit is a parking exemption from the operation of the Parking Regulations applicable to time limit areas only. The exemption is applicable to the area as detailed on the permit and is subject to specific conditions.

Please note normal regulations apply in all other parking zones such as bus zones, no parking, no stopping (yellow lines or signs), etc.
