Council’s e-permit system is live now

Date published: 10 March 2020

The first North Queensland Cowboys home game at the Queensland Country Bank Stadium is fast approaching and Townsville City Council is reminding residents living near the stadium to sign up for their free parking permits now.

The interim parking regulations are set to begin for the first game to be held at the Queensland Country Bank Stadium in order to reduce the impact on locals living near the new stadium.

The regulations will limit on-street parking in the residential event zone to 15 minutes for people who do not have a permit and for two hours in the Palmer Street precinct from one hour before until one hour after a game or major event.

Households in the event zone can apply for a residential parking permit for on-street car parking and businesses are able to apply for customer permits.

Council will also consider issuing special permits for additional vehicles for households where there is a legitimate need, on a case-by-case basis.

Council will monitor and review the regulations during the first few months of their implementation to smooth out any issues for residents and businesses in the area. This review will also inform the final event parking regulation area.
