No Need For E-PERMIT Holders to Use Paid Meters
BYRON SHIRE residents with parking e-permits no longer have to use the paid parking machines.
Late Thursday afternoon (presumably after the Secret Councillor Business meetings) Mayor Simon Richardson announced residents with parking e-permits no longer have to use the paid parking machines.
“You can just park and walk, but be back before the time expires!” he said.
Byron Shire locals and ratepayers can purchase an E-permit (exemption). Businesses and workers within the pay parking area can also purchase an exemption.
New E-permit (exemption) are available if you are a Byron Shire resident (including pensioners), ratepayer, worker or business within the Byron Bay Pay Parking area (including volunteer organisations).
If you have a Pay Parking E-permit (exemption) all you need to do is park and walk away – no more to pay. Staying beyond the time limit can result in a penalty.
For E-permit holders, it’s a paperless system and there is no need to print a ticket and display in your car.
If you don’t have an E-permit, each time you park you will need to enter your licence plate number into the meter, choose the duration of your stay, pay the amount displayed. There is no need to print a ticket.
Motorcycles (as with any registered vehicle) will also need to purchase an Exemption or pay at the meter.
The Lawson Street north and south car parks are now all day parking and additional all day parking is available at Butler Street Reserve.
