Patrols happen at random times. Don't risk a $141 fine. Please use your pass for your GENUINE VISITOR only.
Resident can apply for one pass to entitle a visitor to use the car park.
There are rules that you must agree to. These designed to keep the spaces for genuine visitors.
Prior to introducing these strict rules, the Visitor Car Park was full most of the time & visitors were unable to park onsite.
People found to be breaking the rules may find their registrations on the excluded vehicles list (ie: pass will not work with registration). If you think you should not be on this list please discuss with the Building Manager.
Prior to introducing this pass system, it was almost impossible to get a spot for visitors as residents were using them for permanent parking. It was first in best dressed. We also found people from other buildings and vehicles that were there for months..
Some think rules with no consequence do not apply to them, We had no choice, but to arrange a penalty.
There is a public car park in the building that's run by a private company. We make no money from this either, but it's handy and reasonably priced (enter from Little Bay Street).
For special circumstances (eg. a relative is visiting for a week), you can apply to the Building Manager for a special limited time pass.
Visitor's Car Park (VCP) Rules
1. There are two definitive types of VCP passes:
- "Standard" VCP pass (No charge) exclusive to genuine visitors. It is not to be used by residents.
- "Special" or Extended VCP pass (Chargeable) with the vehicle registration number printed.
The only difference between the two passes is that with the Extended Pass there are no time restrictions or insistence that the pass be used exclusively by genuine visitors. You may apply for a Special/Extended pass at any time, subject to availability.
2. It is the owner's / resident's responsibility to explain and give a copy of the VCP rules to anyone using the VCP with the owner's / resident's authority and to make sure their guests/visitors abide by the VCP rules at all times.
3. Only one Standard VCP authority (permit) is permissible and issued per Bayview residential apartment. This permit may be renewed/re-issued annually upon application and approval. Motorcycles are not permitted in VCP car spaces. There are dedicated areas for Motorcycles. A vehicle can only use one (1) visitor car space at any given time. No trailer, jet-ski or anything attached to the rear of a vehicle is allowed to park in these car parking bays.

5. At the conclusion of the 24 hr period vehicles must not return to the VCP for at least another 24 hours. e.g: If a vehicle is parked in a designated bay on Saturday 11 am, it cannot return to the car park until 11 am the following Monday.
6. The VCP permit must be placed on the vehicle's dashboard or front windscreen with all writing visible.
7. Any vehicles in the VCP using an owner/tenant's VCP pass must be registered, insured and in a street usable condition. The vehicle must not be leaking oil or lodge any other deposit whilst parked in any parking bay.
8. The owners/tenants agree that the vehicle displaying the relevant permit/authority (VCP) pass can be towed from the car park if it is not parked in accordance with the rules.
