How to tag resident-only parking lots?

Many big apartment buildings have vast private parking areas. How would you tag these parking lots so they are not rendered with the letter “P” on I don’t want to mislead people into thinking there is parking available where it’s only available for residents, but I do want to mark the parking as a land use.

Never through about renderer. It’s a rule.
Just use access=private
Also, if exists barrier=gate on the service road

There is a difference in mapnik between a private and public parking.
The private parking is using a lighter blue for the P.

So a good renderer or a good app should be able to know when a parking is available for public and only then show it.
As yrtimiD stating, don’t care about the renderer. As long you define it correctly its fine.
