An ACROD Parking Permit may be issued to an applicant;

  • who is unable to walk and always requires the use of a wheelchair; or
  • whose ability to walk is severely restricted by a permanent disability or medical condition; or
  • whose ability to walk is severely restricted by a temporary disability or medical condition (for a minimum of six months).

Short term severe walking restrictions may be considered in exceptional circumstances.

  • has a very poor gait pattern; and/or
  • uses a complex walking aid; and/or
  • experiences a significant health impact from walking less than 100m.
