Accessible Parking Areas for People With Disabilities
Accessible parking for people with state government issued Disability Parking Permits are available. The Disability Parking Permit must be displayed at all times when parking in these locations.
Where there are time restricted car parks on hospital sites, people with a state government issued Disability Parking Permit will be allowed double the amount of car parking time than usual before penalties apply.
For our pick up and drop
off parks (with signs indicating a time limit of 10 minutes) – 20 minutes if a Disability Parking Permit is displayed.
For our Emergency set
down parks (with signs indicating a time limit of 1 hour) – 2 hours if a Disability Parking Permit is displayed.
Please check signs at each site as they may differ.
As there are no time limits within the general car parks, people with a Disability Parking Permit will be charged at the normal rates in those areas.
