Parking in Kingston
Council is responsible for the distribution of parking permits, the issuing of parking fines and the planning and development of parking policies.
Nobody likes receiving parking infringements, however it is Council's responsibility to ensure the safe and fair use of our roads and parking areas for the benefit of everyone. To pay a parking fine click here.
Foreshore Parking Permits
The process to obtain a beach/foreshore parking permit is as follows:
- Attend any of Council’s Customer Care Centres and provide proof of residency (copy of rate note, licence, lease agreement, statutory declaration or utility bill). The Customer Care Officer will then issue a beach parking permit.
- Make a request in writing (include name and address, and provide proof of residency) either by submitting it in the post to Council or by email. By post to: Kingston City Council Po Box 1000 Mentone Vic 3194 or email email@example.com
