Residents-only spaces are for the exclusive use of authorised residents of the zone and operate 24 hours per day, 365 days of the year. No vehicles may park here unless they belong to residents of the zone, this includes electric vehicles.

The ticket shows the resident's zone and the license number of the parked vehicle, it also identifies the vehicle as being authorised.
