Line marking of parking spaces

It is standard practice within the City of Port Phillip that parking spaces on residential streets are not line-marked.

On-street parking bays are required to be line marked to specific dimensions, in accordance with the Australian Standard AS 2890.5-1993. The standard does not recognise small vehicles, which may result in a net loss of spaces once line marked.

Requests for line marking

You must have support to have line marking of parking spaces installed on a residential street. You will need a jointly signed letter of at least 5 residents in the street. Letters should be addressed to:

Transport Safety Engineering
Private Bag 3
St Kilda VIC 3182


Scan your signed letter and submit online with My Port Phillip.

What happens next?

When we receive your letter, the next steps are:

  • a notification letter will be sent to all affected properties advising of the proposal
  • this gives everyone a chance to consider the change
  • if there are no major objections from residents, the street will have its parking bays line marked.
