Parking Policy update

Council endorsed a new Parking Management Policy on 19 February 2020. The Combined Parking Permits will no longer exist, and will be replaced by Resident Parking Permits for eligible households and single-use, short-term Foreshore Parking Vouchers.

Although most changes will come into effect 1 July 2021 or 1 July 2025, the new Policy is available for download.

Applying for a Permit

You will need to provide a valid form of vehicle identification when applying. Please see the identification example below

Cost: $124 per year

Apply: Apply online for a Combined Permit or submit a parking permit application form (PDF 52 KB).

How to display the Permit

If approved, you will be provided sticker for your vehicle windscreen. The permit must be clearly displayed on the lower passenger side of the front windscreen with all permit details clearly visible.

If permit is not displayed correctly, it may not be visible to the parking enforcement officers which can lead to the vehicle receiving a parking infringement notice.

Parking infringement notices may not be withdrawn if a permit is not correctly displayed.

You should note Combined Permits:

  • do not exempt drivers from Clearways, No Stopping areas or Loading Zones
  • must not be used for business parking purposes.
  • must not be copied, reproduced or tampered with.

If we identify a case of parking permit misuse, the matter may be referred to Victoria Police for investigation as a criminal offence.

Coverage provide by the Permit

Permits are not valid if the vehicle is parked in front of or along the side of a non-residential property, including:

  • commercial

Council defines a Residential property as being a property that is used 100 per cent for residential purposes.

Properties that have a mixed use, such as apartments on upper floors and a café, shop or business on ground floor, are not considered residential.

The following vehicles are not eligible for a Parking Permit:

  • Vehicles over 4.5 tonne or longer than 7.5 meters
  • Trucks
