Parklet Program

What is a Parklet?

Parklets are re-purposed parking bays which are designed to create spaces for pedestrian activity. Parklet setups could contain things like a platform with seating, greenery and bike parking facilities. Although parklets are maintained by hosts, they are public space for the community to enjoy.

There are 2 streams to the Moreland Parklet program, the short-term stream and the long-term stream.

Applications are now open for both the Short & Long-term Parklet streams!



Short-term stream

Short term installations run for 6 months. They run from July to January and then from January to July each year to ensure each site experiences both cool and warmer weather. The setup is made of Council owned parklet furniture which is hired out to give hosts an opportunity to try the idea before investing in the Long term stream. 

If you are interested in hosting a short term parklet, please complete the form below or contact us directly at 

Fees involved: .  

  • One parking space, $2121.80
  • Each additional space + $1060.90

* Fees are subject to annual budget changes. Correct as of July 2019.

Long-term stream

Hosts can apply to have their own semi-permanent Parklet installations. Hosts can design, construct and maintain their  setup within the Parklet Guidelines. The parklet can be installed in a parking space out the front of the business for 1 year with the option to renew the permit annually.

If you are interested in hosting a long-term parklet then please complete the form below or contact us directly at 

Fees associated with the Long term stream include: 

  • One-off application processing fee, $212.20 + 
  • Permit for one parking space, $530.45,
  • Permit cost for each additional parking space, $371.30

* Fees are subject to annual budget changes. Correct as of July 2019.

Council have prepared a standard Parklet design detail (PDF 126Kb) which applicants are welcome to use as part of their submission to minimise costs associated with the need for structural engineering sign off.
