Foreshore parking permits


Foreshore parking permits allow you to park free in the identified foreshore car parks in Frankston and Seaford. There are two different types:  

  • ratepayer permit 
  • tenant permit.  

Updated process for ratepayers

Permits will no longer be sent out with your annual rates notice and will now need to apply for a foreshore parking permit for record keeping purposes. Ratepayers can register online by entering their name and address to have the permit(s) posted or register in person to receive their permit(s) on the spot. 

Please note that commercial ratepayers are not eligible for this permit.


To be eligible to receive a foreshore parking permit, you must be the ratepayer of a residential property or the tenant of a residential property.

Please note that permits are valid for cars only. Boats, buses, trailers, trucks, caravans or motorcycles are not considered applicable vehicles.

Tenants applying for a foreshore parking permit must also produce evidence of residency such as:

  • a current drivers licence
  • utility bill (not a mobile phone) 
  • residential lease agreement.
