The new residential parking permit areas came into effect on Thursday 1 July 2021. Permits issued prior to this date as a street-based permit are valid under the old conditions until you re-apply for a new area-based permit.
If you live on a street that is a boundary of a Residential Parking Area, you will be able to park on both sides of the street, as long as you are still within the City of Port Phillip and not in a neighbouring municipality or residing along the foreshore.
Your permit will be marked with a '(B)' indicating you are on a boundary and allowed to park on both sides of the street you live on within the area marked on your permit.
If you're not sure which parking area your property is in, don't worry, the parking signs will be numbered with the area number. You can double check the number on your new permit issued after 1 July 2021.
Nothing until your current permit needs to be renewed. Your current permit is valid under your existing parking permit conditions until it expires. This means that the current 'surrounding streets' parking applies until that time.
After 1 July 2021, your renewed permit will have your area number on it, and you must park in this area.
If your current permit is due to expire after 1 January 2022, you can elect to change to the new 'area-based' permit before your normal renewal date.
This process started in July 2021. Go to the Parking Permits page for details.
If there are currently no permit zones on your street, this will remain the same under the new parking permit area changes.
If residents wish to request changes to the parking in their street, the process is outlined in parking restrictions.
