Parking on nature lanes

Under the Road Safety Act 1986 (Vic) it is illegal to park on a natural grassed or landscaped strip without specific exemption. Each Council is responsible for enforcing this law.

The state government introduced these rules to:

  • protect natural strips and infrastructure below
  • ensure the safety of pedestrians and vehicles, especially when exiting aisles.

If you believe there is a lack of access to on-street parking at your property, please call the Council’s infrastructure team on 1300 322 322 to discuss potential solutions.
