(Back to top)

Boat parked on the street

Council encourages owners to park their caravan, boat or trailer on private property. 

Parking these types of vehicles on a public road can impact other road users and members of the public.

However, according to Road Rules 2014 (Rule No. 200) a truck, boat or trailer may be legally parked on a residential street if 

  • It is less than 7.5m long and have a gross vehicle mass (GVM) less than 4.5 tonnes
  • The vehicle must be registered and abide by all road rules.

Note different rules will apply if it is a heavy or long vehicle (classified as more than 7.5m long and with a GVM of 4.5 tonnes or more) Refer to on-street parking of heavy and long vehicles below. 

You can view the Road User Handbook (PDF, 7MB) online or purchase a copy from your local Service NSW Centre.

The handbook is written in plain, easy to understand language, so it is not a detailed version of road law. To access the current and complete set of Road Rules,

Visit the NSW legislation website.

Reporting a Vehicle left in a Public Space for more than 28 days

(Back to top)

If you believe that a vehicle has been left unattended or dumped in your neighbourhood, You can check on Service NSW’s website via the link check if the vehicle is registered.

Note: Registered vehicles are permitted to stay parked in one spot for 28 days providing they are in good order and parked in line with NSW road rules.

The public can report a vehicle, boat, trailer or other item  left in a public place for more than 28 days to Council’s Regulatory Team for investigation on 9806-5050 or via Council’s online portal Online Services (choose Laws and Enforcement and then unattended/dumped vehicle.)

When investigating, Council considers the impact on other road users and safety issues such as compromised sightlines, the use of limited parking space and the impact on public amenity (such as not causing debris to gather in gutters or be used to store waste). Long term parking of caravans, boats and trailers is not desirable in high demand areas such as school zones (and surrounding areas).
