Council recognises all disability parking permits issued by Queensland Transport and also issues parking permits for residents affected by signposted parking restrictions fronting their premises. If you require a parking permit please contact Council's Road Infrastructure Planning Branch on 07 3412 5282.
Enquiries about changes to on-street parking or general traffic management issues should be directed to Road Infrastructure Planning Branch on 07 3412 5282.
If you have been issued with an infringement notice and believe that you have a legal defence, an exemption from the law, a reasonable excuse or there is an error on the infringement notice, you may appeal to have the infringement notice waived.
Residential parking permit
A residential parking permit is issued to persons who are required to park their vehicles in signed timed parking areas for longer than the allowed period. Examples would be volunteers at service clubs, libraries or residents who reside adjacent to schools.

Relevant local law
Local Law No. 7 (Parking) includes specific restrictions for the parking of vehicles, such as signposted 'No Stopping' zones, and time-restricted parking. It is also prohibited to park a vehicle on a footway or nature strip, as this causes danger to pedestrians and other motorists, as well as potentially causing damage to footways. It also includes restrictions on the parking of heavy vehicles or trucks.
Enquiries regarding heavy vehicle parking or Local Law 7 should be directed to Customer Service Branch on 07 3412 3412.
Meadowbrook Traffic Area
The Meadowbrook Traffic Area is a designated area within the city where area wide parking restrictions are in place. The area is a 2 hour parking restricted area (unless otherwise signed). The parking restrictions commence when a vehicle passes the Meadowbrook Traffic Area signage. The restrictions cease when the vehicle passes the 'End' Traffic Area signs.
Every road entry to the Meadowbrook Traffic Area is sign posted with a Traffic Area sign. There are also a number of intermediary traffic signs along the roads to remind drivers they are in the traffic area. Once a driver passes a Traffic Area sign the driver is deemed by law to have notice of the Traffic Area.
The Meadowbrook Traffic Area signs were erected in October 2013. After an initial educational period including media publicity, Council then removed all individual 2P parking control signs that were no longer required and parking enforcement is now conducted with the Traffic Area signage. The roads within the Meadowbrook Traffic Area encompass a large suburban area and also includes Armstrong Road which runs adjacent to the Logan Hospital and the Metropolitan South Institute of Tafe (MSIT).
Parking is limited in the area and if visiting Logan Hospital or MSIT there is local long term parking available at Noffke Park. This service is provided by the Rugby League Club located in Noffke Park opposite the southern end of Edenlea drive. A minimum fee is charged for this service.
Resident and visitor parking permits are available for local residents only - enquiries should be directed to the Road Infrastructure Planning branch on (07) 3412 5282.
