Residential parking

Nature strips

As a general rule, parking is not allowed on nature strips.

Rolled kerbs and nature strips

In streets with rolled kerbs, vehicles should park parallel to the kerb with 2 wheels on the nature strip and 2 wheels on the road.

Where parking bays have also been provided on the nature strip area adjacent to the rolled kerb, vehicles must only park in these bays with two wheels
on the parking bay and two wheels on the road so that other vehicles can still negotiate the road.
