In the past, we provided Parking Permit holders with a suction cap to secure their permit to a windscreen.
As we have now transitioned to a State Government scheme, Yarra Ranges Council will no longer be in a position to provide these items.
An accessible Parking permit is issued subject to various general and permit – specific conditions including:
• The details on the permit (e.g. permit number, expiry date, people with disabilities symbol, registration number) must be legible and unaltered.
• The permit must only be displayed when the permit holder is using (parking) the vehicle.
To provide a suction cap would risk obscuring the permit details including the QR code that is used by Enforcement officers and therefore breach the conditions of use.
A suction cap may also encourage the permit to be permanently displayed in a vehicle. We encourage all permit holders to pop their permit back into a glove box, Centre Console or bag to reduce the risk of theft when sitting idle.
