Requesting a parking officer
You can request a parking officer to investigate a suspected illegally parked vehicle between the hours of 6 am and 11 pm, seven days a week, by contacting Council.
Council's parking officers can also respond to after hours calls for urgent parking issues such as blocked driveways and dangerously and illegally parked vehicles.

Properties subject to Council's 'No Parking Permit' Policy
Council's 'No Parking Permit' Policy prohibits the issue of resident and visitor parking permits to owners and occupiers of certain properties.
Council resolved in 1997 and then extended the policy application again in September 2002 to implement a 'blanket' policy refusing owners/occupiers of certain residential developments from participating in Council’s Parking Permit Scheme. The policy applies to all new residential development, where there is an increase in the number of residential dwellings on the lot, irrespective of the level of on site parking provided.
The policy was implemented to continue Council's desire to achieve six fundamental objectives, which are to:
- ensure new developments are 'self-sufficient' in car parking provision;
- minimize the on street parking impact of new developments;
- encourage greater consideration of sustainable transport modes;
- reduce the impact of the car on the local community and environment;
- optimise the availability of kerb side space for existing resident and visitor parking permit holders;
- minimise future traffic growth and likely congestion.
