‘More reliable and easier to read’ parking meters are replacing Byron Bay’s old meters, say Council staff.

From Monday November 30, newer models are being rolled out, replacing existing meters.

Byron Shire Council’s Director Infrastructure Services, Phil Holloway said, ‘We’re also introducing the COVID Safe option of touchless payment via the PayStay app – and that will be available from December 14 when all the new meters have been installed’.

Parking permits

Council is also reminding Byron Shire residents to buy or renew annual parking permits ahead of the busy holiday period.

Annual parking permits are $55 per year and enable permit holders to park in any metered car space, without charge (parking time limits apply). Also, you need your car registration papers to purchase your permit.

Visit the Byron Shire Council website or drop in to Council’s Mullumbimby office for your permit.

  1. I know its a controversial issue, but maybe the introduction of paid parking meters into Brunswick Heads might just benefit the local residents in getting a parking spot. Maybe it’s time for a rethink.
