Beach parking permits

Beach parking permits allow residents displaying a permit to park free in foreshore car parks within Bayside including Beach Road and the Esplanade.

Two free permits are issued to each household with your rate notice every 3 years. If your permits aren't delivered with your rate notice, please let us know. Rental tenants can also apply for a permit.

Permits are valid from the date of issue until 30 October 2023.

Displaying your permit

The parking permit must be displayed inside the vehicle on the bottom corner of the passenger side of the front windscreen. Fines incurred as a result of failing to display a permit will not be withdrawn.

Permits are transferable. If you are changing your car, please remove the permit and place it in your new car.

The permit does not guarantee the availability of a parking space. Motorists must park in accordance with regulation or any other signed restrictions, for example, time limit.
