Permits valid either side of border
AFTER months of speculation about proposed changes to NSW disability parking legislation Currumbin MP Jann Stuckey has announced Queenslanders living on the border will not be affected.
Queenslanders holding a red disability parking permit were concerned changes to NSW legislation would prevent them from parking in NSW.
Ms Stuckey has confirmed the red permits will continue to be accepted in NSW and Roads Transport Authority officers had been advised on the situation.
“I have been advised by David Borger MP, Minister for Roads in NSW, that holders of interstate and overseas permits will be afforded the same parking concessions as those given to holders of NSW disability parking permits.
“In addition, Queensland red disability parking permit holders will be able to park free of charge in metered spaces and stop in designated disability spaces in NSW,” she said.
