Parking Fines - Illegal Parking

Illegal Parking and Fines

Parking fines are set by legislation administered by the Road Transport & Maritime Service of NSW, (formally know as the Roads & Traffic Authority). The monetary value of parking fines is also set by legislation administered by the Road Transport & Maritime Service and NSW Treasury. Councils do not set or amend parking fine penalties.

Council's Parking Rangers cannot withdraw a notice once it has been issued or commenced. Once a notice has been issued or commenced, there is an appeals procedure which can be made directly to Revenue NSW.

Council's Rangers are trained to assist members of the public with their requests for information and advice regarding parking related matters and general advice.
