To make access fairer to parking spaces in busy streets we limit the time you can park. To encourage you to meet those limits we will fine you if you park for longer than the time on the sign.

Our parking officers will often let you move your vehicle, rather than giving you a fine. But you need to move within a reasonable amount of time.

Who decides how much fines are?

Fines are set depending on the offence. Every year on 1 July, penalties are updated under the Monetary Units Act 2004 and are set by the Department of Treasury and Finance.

Please visit the Department of Justice and Community Safety for more information.
