Council are reminding locals living near the stadium, to sort out their free parking permits.

A Regulated Parking Permit Scheme will be implemented during Queensland Country Bank Stadium events to ensure residents are still able to park on their streets and to help minimise the impact stadium patrons have on surrounding suburbs.

The interim parking regulations are set to begin for the first game to be held at the Queensland Country Bank Stadium in order to reduce the impact on locals living near the new stadium.

The regulations will limit on-street parking in the residential event zone to 15 minutes for people who do not have a permit and for two hours in the Palmer Street precinct from one hour before until one hour after a game or major event.

To apply or get the answer to any questions, visit Council's website now. 

Households in the event zone can apply for a residential parking permit for on-street car parking and businesses are able to apply for customer permits.

Council will also consider issuing special permits for additional vehicles for households where there is a legitimate need, on a case-by-case basis.

Events and games at the Queensland Country Bank Stadium will cause other traffic and parking changes. These changes will be:

  • Dean Street Car Park will be closed from 2pm on event and game days. Alternative parking is available in the CBD.
  • Lowths Bridge on Stanley Street will be closed before and during the game due to pedestrian traffic.
