If you have received a parking infringement, please visit our parking infringements information page.
If you have received an infringement notice issued by the City of Port Phillip, you need to take action by the due date to avoid further action and costs.
Infringement notices are issued in accordance with the Infringements Act 2006.
Your options to deal with an infringement notice:
Request a review of a fine or infringement notice
If you believe you have been unfairly issued with a fine or there is a valid reason your fine should be withdrawn, you can ask for a review.
You can apply to have your fine reviewed if:
- you have received an infringement notice or penalty reminder notice
- the infringement hasn’t progressed for further enforcement
This is an internal review. We have up to 90 days to process your review, or longer if we require additional information from you. We always try to complete reviews as quickly as we can. Once you finish and send us your request, your fine will be placed on hold. No further fees will be added.
You can only request one internal review for each infringement. We’ll notify you of the outcome in writing to the postal address you provided. If your application is successful, you will not need to take any action. If your application is not successful, we will outline your remaining options, and we will set a new payment date.
You can request an internal review for one of the following reasons:
Requesting an internal review (appeal) of an infringement
Elect to Court
If you have been issued with an infringement notice, you can choose to have the matter heard at court.
Before you apply to go to court, consider requesting a review instead. The outcomes of a court hearing can be different from an infringement notice. Consider seeking legal advice before electing to go to court.
