Frankston City residents will next week be able to apply online for permits to park for free at Frankston and Seaford foreshores. Ratepayers’ permits will be valid until September 2023, while tenants’ permits are valid for one year.
Mayor Sandra Mayer said the new paperless registration process was a more simplified approach than sending permits out with rates notices, as had been done in the past, and meant residents did not need to visit council service centres unnecessarily during the COVID-19 lockdown.
“Our service centres are closed while Stage 4 restrictions are in place,” Cr Mayer said. “The new system will continue once they reopen so you can apply from the comfort and safety of your own home. It is as easy as filling in a quick, three-question online form and your permit will be mailed to you.
“It means we aren’t printing unrequired permits, can keep accurate records and provide a better customer experience. It also makes it easier for eligible residents to receive a replacement permit if they move home or purchase a new vehicle.”
Residential ratepayers are entitled to two permits, but if additional vehicles are registered at the address, up to three further permits can be purchased. A maximum of two permits will be issued for rental properties.
The applications open next Monday, August 10. For more information and to apply, click here, or you can phone 1300 322 322. Current permits expire next month.
