The Permit is vehicle registration-based permit sticker displayed on your vehicle windscreen.
Vehicles displaying a valid Foreshore Permit are not required to purchase a ticket at paid parking locations along both sides of the beach road (foreshore) and in the designated public car parks. All time restrictions must still be adhered to.

Coverage provided by the Permit
Foreshore Parking Permits do not authorise a vehicle to:
- park in a private car park, including the St Kilda Sea Baths car park
- park without purchasing a ticket in the Shakespeare Grove car park or on the Lower Esplanade
- park in a residential Permit Zone
- park in a time restricted location (for example, 2P) for longer than the time permitted on the sign.
Permits do not exempt drivers from Clearways and No Stopping areas.
How to display the Permit
The permit must be clearly displayed on the lower passenger side of the front windscreen with all permit details clearly visible.
If permits are not displayed correctly, they may not be visible to the parking enforcement officers and can lead to the vehicle receiving a parking infringement notice.
Parking infringement notices may not be withdrawn if a permit is not correctly displayed.
Permits 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.
