Demand for parking spaces on the streets of Waverley, in some areas, exceeds the supply of spaces on most days. Waverley’s parking system consists of paid and permit parking and residential zones, and is reviewed and adjusted regularly to maximise its capacity so that everyone – residents, visitors, commuters and business operators – has fair and equal access to spaces.

A number of permits are available to Waverley residents. Permits vary from Beach Parking and Residential Parking permits, to Visitor and Carer's permits. Permit parking provides greater opportunities to park in some of Waverley's busiest areas.
