The majority of on-street parking in Frankston City is free, except on the foreshore. Time limits and permits apply in some locations and are signed accordingly.
Off- street parking is provided by Council and private operators, including Bayside and Karingal Hub. Most of the off-street parking in the city centre is paid parking.
Free off-street commuter parking is available adjacent to the Frankston, Kananook and Seaford railways stations.

Residential Parking Permits may be issued to residents in streets where parking restrictions apply.
Eligible residents are entitled to a maximum of three Residential Parking Permits per household and a maximum of two Residential Parking Permits per unit.
Any Residential Parking Permit issued is only valid for the street named in the Permit. Residential Parking Permits are not valid in any other location and do not allow the Permit holder to park in prohibited spaces. The Permit does not guarantee the availability of a parking space for the Permit holder.
Permits are valid for 12 months and must be renewed at the end of the 12 month period. Permits cease to be valid on the expiry date, or on change of residence of the Permit holder, whichever occurs first.
The Residential Parking Permit must be placed in a clearly visible location on the passenger side of the vehicle’s dashboard and be clearly visible from outside the vehicle.
Every Residential Parking Permit and the renewal of the Permit must be applied online via the following link.
If you have a Veteran Affairs (DVA) Gold Card you may be entitled to a free parking permit.
Under State Government law it is illegal to park on a grassed or landscaped nature strip without a specific exemption, and it is each Council’s responsibility to enforce this law.
The State Government introduced these rules to protect nature strips and the infrastructure located underneath them; and to ensure the safe movement of pedestrians and vehicles, particularly when exiting driveways.
If you believe there is a lack of access to on-street parking at your property please contact Council’s Infrastructure Team on 1300 322 322 to discuss potential solutions.
