    I'd probably speak to the neighbour or leave a note under the wiper asking them politely not to park there, if they kept doing it after that yeah I would probably call the council.

    I understand your frustration op. This used to happen at our old place. Frustrating that when our family or friends would come over and they would have nowhere to park because the neighbours would park outside our house all the time, actually the neighbour used to have a work truck parked there. Even though it's not technically your property it is annoying.

    You can get it registered though. We looked into this and had we stayed living there we would have registered it.

    I probably wouldn't get annoyed if there are no other alternatives but why can't the visitor park on their friends nature strip or on the road directly in front if the house?

    I would probably put something large there though to obstruct them..

    I will check with the council tomorrow to see if it is okay. The only issue might be the fact that I am on a corner with a roundabout.....
    I'm not saying it's okay, but if you live on the corner with a roundabout chances are she can't park on the street because of the long white line (can't park where that line is)
    Dies your neighbour have their own nature strip?

    Anyhow I think a note left on the car will suffice now you've contacted the council.
    I got fined on my parents nature strip also! Annoying as they have nowhere else for us to park as they have the roundabout in front of their house

    I hate it for a couple of reasons

    1. It kills the grass, we are in a rental and the real estate agent is a pain and complained about it once
    2. Anyone who parks on our nature strip sets our dog off - he goes mental until they go away

    OP i get where you are coming from. It drives me nuts!

    How often does this visitor park on your nature strip?

    If it's just occasionally, then I'd really just try to not let it bother you. It just seems like a waste of energy.

    If it was almost every day, I'd probably be inclined to nicely talk to your neighbour about it before taking any other action.

    I think dobbing her into the council is way OTT, and kinda mean.

    My nature strip is quite far from the front of my house, and I couldn't give two hoots who parks on it. We had a random 4WD there for two days last weekend. Several kids play footy on our nature strip most afternoons. It's not mine, and as long as they aren't doing any damage I couldn't care less.

    well then no wonder you're p**sed off.. why the hell would they park on yours? it doesn't even make sense?!
    I'd be too chicken sh*t to say anything but I'd want to.
    If they have their own nature strip, I just don't understand why they'd park on yours?

    I should clarify, they do have a power pole in the middle of theirs which makes it a little more difficult for them to use (although totally doable).

    Their driveway is massive, it would fit 6 cars if they wanted to have their visitors park on their property.
