Darwin City could introduce weekly, fortnightly or monthly parking permits in the CBD.

Council last night voted for a formal review into paid parking at the first meeting of its new look team.

Lord Mayor Kon Vatskalis has told the ABC, Council needs to get it right.

"We will find a solution, at the same time we have to have an informed decision. I don't want to go ahead and do something and then six months down the track 'cop it' and then pull it back. If we're going to do it, we need to do it once and do it well", he said.

The report, which will also explore free periods of parking, will be presented to Council in November
