Unrestricted street parking

Most residential street in the City of Whitehorse have un-restricted on-street parking for the residents and guests. Anyone may park on these streets; however, if a vehicle has not been moved in 14 days, it may be considered to be abandoned or derelict and may be towed away. A notice to the registered owner will be issued before any action is taken.

In addition, vehicles greater than 7.5 metres in length or 4.5 tonnes in weight require a permit to be parked on residential streets for longer than one hour.

Parking demand in residential areas is monitored and, where demand is greater than supply, the residents may be surveyed and restricted on-street parking could be introduced. To request a review of parking in your area, contact Council’s Transport Engineers on 9262 6333.

Motorcycle parking

You may legally park a motorcycle on the footpath. To park your motorcycle on a footpath:

  • Dismount and walk your motorcycle while you are on the footpath;
  • Make sure your motorcycle is at least one motorcycle length out from the building line to allow free passage of pedestrians (this is important as people with a visual and/or physical impairment may use the building line for navigation); and
  • Park at least one motorcycle wheel diameter back from the road kerb to allow pedestrians free access to and from the road and to parked vehicles (you can leave less space between your motorcycle and the kerb if you park next to a ‘No Stopping’ zone).

Do not park your motorcycle:

  • Where signs indicate that footpath parking is banned for motorcycles;
  • Opposite any parking bay reserved for people with disabilities (marked with a wheelchair sign and symbol);
  • Where space is reserved for footpath activities such as street cafes;
  • On or near service access points such as manhole covers, post boxes or rubbish bins;
  • Near taxi ranks or bus and tram stops;
  • In a spot that will obstruct other people’s access to a ticket machine or meter;
  • On private property without permission from the property owner; or
  • In ‘No Stopping’ areas for motorcycles.
