Make sure you check which permit you are eligible for before applying. 

  • If you live in a property which has not been subdivided after 31 August 2011 you are generally eligible for a resident parking permit.
  • If you live in a property which has been subdivided after 31 August 2011 you are generally not eligible for resident and visitor parking permits. This includes newer townhouses and apartments.
  • If you live in a property which has been subdivided after 31 August 2011 (but before January 2021) AND live in an area which has had parking restrictions changes as part of the Moreland Integrated Transport Strategy, you are eligible for the resident A parking permit. 
  • If you have a disabled parking permit, you can access a resident parking permit regardless of whether your property has been subdivided since August 2011.
  • Resident parking permits allow you to park all-day in your street.

Resident Parking Permit

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

Moreland Council's implementation of the new planned parking restrictions in some areas of Moreland has been delayed until after the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

We trust our community will respect the leniency we are showing, and continue to put safety first, look out for each other and use parking facilities responsibly and legally. Parking officers will continue to issue fines when vehicles are parked unsafely or blocking access to properties or essential services. This includes parking in a disability bay without a permit, blocking a driveway or footpath, parking in a clearway, and parking too close to an intersection.

Further information will be available for residents and businesses in the affected areas soon.

 

  • Where can I park with a resident parking permit?

    With a resident parking permit you can park all-day in timed parking in your street except for restrictions below 30 minutes and prohibited areas such as ‘no stopping’ and ‘loading zones’. This permit also allows you to park in resident permit zones, if applicable on your street. 

    If you live on a corner property, a permit can be issued for either the front street or side street. If you have 2 permits, both permits must be issued to the same street.

    A permit does not guarantee there will be a parking space available in your street.

    A permit is only valid for the street of issue on your parking permit and in your application form.

  • How many resident parking permits can I apply for?

    You can have either 1 or 2 resident parking permits depending on your property.

    If your property has a driveway crossover, you can only get 1 resident parking permit.

    If your property does not have a driveway crossover, you can get 2 resident parking permits.

    A driveway crossover is an access point where cars can travel from a road, usually across a nature strip and/or footpath, to a property. If you have a private driveway, it usually indicates you have a driveway crossover.

    Properties with more than one driveway crossover are not eligible for any resident parking permits.

    If you are unsure whether you have a driveway crossover or not, please call us.

    If you are in a Moreland Integrated Transport strategy area and you have been residing in the proprety prior to the introduction of new parking restrictions, you are eligible for 1 extra transitional resident permit. This will cost the same as a second resident parking permit.
