Terms & Conditions
A limited number of permanent parking spaces may be available specifically for those employed by local businesses and those wishing to park on a long-term basis (minimum 3 months) at Sydney Olympic Park. Sydney Olympic Park Authority (SOPA) monthly parking permits can not be purchased for a period of less than 3 months, or for specific event periods only such as the Royal Easter Show.
Parking rates will vary depending on location (ie: which car park) and access limits (ie: 6am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday only, or 24/7 access). Current rates are posted on SOPA’s web site at: http://www.sydneyolympicpark.com.au/parking/permanent_parking
SOPA will use its best endeavours to locate permit holders within a car park close to their desired location; however relocation may be required at times of major events, particularly during the Royal Easter Show period when certain car parks are temporarily unavailable. For this reason parking in a particular car park can not be guaranteed and it may be necessary to relocate to a different car park should the need arise.
SOPA Parking Permits are not for a specific space/location within a car park and do not allow on-street parking and/or parking outside of a marked bay. P6 barcoded permit holders not clearly displaying a valid SOPA Parking Permit when parked in a pay & display car park may be issued with an infringement without warning.
SOPA Parking Permits will be charged each month, in advance on the respective monthly anniversary date. Payment must be made via SOPA’s direct debit system (ie Westpac PayWay) and permits will be deactivated within 24 hours following advice of a declined transaction (eg: insufficient funds and ‘Do Not Honour’). An administrative fee of $27.50 will apply in such cases.
It is important to understand that the SOPA Parking Permit, proxy card must be used in the sequence of 1 Entry followed by 1 Exit). If you have forgotten your pass (eg: left it at home, office or in another car, etc.) and/or you push for a ticket on entry, you will be charged the full casual rate. Misuse of your Permit may result in SOPA terminating your parking access.
After holding a SOPA monthly Parking Permit in excess of 3 months, suspension of your permit may be permitted for annual leave (1 to 6 months), or maternity leave for up to 12 months (with a doctor’s certificate). Suspension must be done in whole month blocks as SOPA is not able to suspend on a weekly basis. An administrative fee of $27.50 will apply for suspended, lost and non returned prox cards.
Refunds may be considered only after the permit is physically received by SOPA’s parking contractor - Secure Parking and will only be provided after deducting the current daily casual rate, multiplied by the number of days the card was held. In this respect there will be a minimum charge for 3 months for monthly permits and any refund after the minimum 3 month period for monthly permits will be calculated at the daily rate (currently $25 per day), for the remainder of the current billing month. As an example; after the minimum 3 month period, a request for a refund of a monthly permit after being held for say 2 days in the current month will result in a refund of the current monthly rate, less 2 days multiplied by the current daily rate.
All SOPA Parking Permit fees are subject to increase by the CPI each 1 July, or as otherwise determined and advised by SOPA on its website.
Please note that these Terms and Conditions may be subject to change from time to time. You should check web page: http://www.sydneyolympicpark.com.au/parking/permanent_parking/terms_and_conditions periodically to keep informed of any changes.
