Accessible parking

We provide accessible parking spaces, also known as disability parking spaces, for people with disability.

You can find accessible parking spaces in the City of Port Phillip with our Access Map.

Parking permits

How do I apply for an accessible parking space?

Council recognises that people with disability are likely to require parking close to their home. Valid permit holders can request an installation assessment for an accessible on-street parking space outside their home.

Requests must be received in writing, detailing:

  • the reason for the request
  • details of the current valid blue disabled parking permit
  • vehicle ownership
  • preferred location for the space.

When considering the request, Council officers consider:

  • access to off-street parking
  • how close any existing spaces nearby are, and how well they are used.

Exceptional circumstances will be examined on a case-by-case basis.

To apply for a parking permit or for information about the types of permits, visit Disabled Persons Parking Permits.

Parking spaces upgrade

We are upgrading our existing accessible parking spaces to meet best practice and comply with the 2020 target set in the Disability Discrimination Act.

There are 150 accessible parking locations in commercial and strip shopping centres that have been prioritised as part of the Disabled Parking Review.
