Foreshore Parking ePermit Application

A Paid Parking Pilot for visitors to the Mornington Peninsula Shire will commence on 1 December 2023 at: 

  • Flinders Pier Foreshore carpark (Flinders) 
  • Schnapper Point Foreshore carpark (Mornington) 
  • Sunnyside Beach Foreshore carpark (Mount Eliza) 

As a resident you will not pay to park at these Pilot locations, but to ensure your vehicle can be recognised by the licence plate cameras, you will need to apply for an ePermit prior to your visit.

There are four different Permit Categories: 

  1. Resident Foreshore Parking Permit  
  2. Local Business Staff Foreshore Parking Permit  
  3. Volunteer/Club Foreshore Parking Permit  
  4. Accessible Foreshore Parking Permit 

Residents need to apply for an ePermit if you intend to park at one of the three locations included in the pilot.

Local Business Staff and Volunteer ePermits are available for eligible persons to minimise impact on surrounding business owners and their staff and to support community events that take place at our foreshores.

Accessible ePermits ensure that the cameras at each foreshore parking pilot site can recognise those who are parking with an accessible parking permit.

We understand that many residents who utilise accessible parking rely on support from carers, family and friends.  You are now welcome to add up to 5 vehicle registrations to your Accessible ePermit application to ensure you can park with ease at any of the pilot sites.

Most applicants will simply require a Resident Foreshore Parking Permit.

Permits will remain valid for the duration of the Pilot.
