What is considered loading/unloading?

Loading/unloading involves the continuous movement of goods to and from your vehicle, and checking and signing any associated paperwork. Stopping for a chat, or shopping will not be considered loading.

If you are not seen to be loading/unloading continuously your vehicle will be considered to be ‘parked’ and different guidelines apply for this activity - see the enforcement protocol for more details.

Where can I load/unload?

Our streets are governed by controlled parking zones - areas where all kerbside space is subject to regulation during the times of control.

Kerb space may be marked with parking bays, single or double yellow lines, or kerb markings called blips - each of which has different implications for loading and unloading.

What other options do I have?

Parking bay suspension

A parking bay suspension may be suitable if:

  • no appropriate parking bays are available in the area in which you need to load/unload,
  • you need to load/unload intermittently without having to move your vehicle; or
  • you need to load/unload during controlled hours and you require more than the allowed time to do so.

Parking permission notice

A parking permission may be suitable if there are no parking bays in the area in which you need to load/unload, and:

  • you need to load/unload intermittently without having to move your vehicle; or
  • you need to load/unload during controlled hours and you require more than the allowed time to do so.
