The City of Stirling implements Local Laws and Parking Agreements to maximise the use of available space and to provide access to parking for all motorists. Here you can find out more about parking laws, permits, agreements and infringements.
Parking local laws
The City of Stirling’s Parking Local Laws are designed to maximise the use of available space and to provide access to parking for all motorists, with regard to conflicting requirements of businesses, visitors, residents and traffic management issues.
Illegal parking causes frustration, inconvenience and irritation. It can also be dangerous to pedestrians, cyclists and other road users.
A no-tolerance approach is taken on all parking offences within the City of Stirling. It is the motorist’s responsibility to check the relevant parking signs prior to leaving their vehicle. Vehicle parking is governed by Local Laws enforced by the City’s rangers. On-the-spot fines apply for breaches of these laws.
The information sheets provided below are a guide to parking within the City, and not all parking restrictions are detailed.
If you are having problems with parking on your street the City may be able to help. Contact us on 9345 8555 to discuss your needs.
Commercial Parking Agreements and Private Land Parking Agreements have been made available to assist businesses in managing their parking needs.
Private land parking agreement
The Private Land Parking Agreement enables the provisions of the Parking Local Law to extend to private land (generally suitable for car parks up to 50 bays). Where an authorised complainant identifies a vehicle parked in a parking facility or parking station on private land in contravention of the City's Parking Local Laws, they can request an authorised person from the City to issue an infringement notice.
For further information and to apply, download the Information Sheet and Application Form, below.
All applications must be assessed by the Senior Ranger / Parking Co-ordinator before an Agreement can be made.
Commercial parking agreements
Enquiries regarding Commercial Parking Agreements (for car parks of more than 50 bays) can be made to the City's Senior Ranger / Parking Co-ordinator on (08) 9205 8555.
Before you park, ask yourself:
- Is it legal to park here?
- Is it safe to park here?
- Will it inconvenience others?
