Parking Infringement disputes
An infringement notice issued may be reviewed by the City if the recipient claims special circumstances led to the offence and can provide proof of these circumstances.
Examples of extenuating circumstances where an infringement notice may be withdrawn include (but are not limited to):
- a broken down vehicle emergency
In such circumstances, documentary proof must be provided with your written appeal.
When parking, it is the responsibility of the driver to make themselves aware of any parking restrictions and local laws relating to parking. As such, the following are generally not considered justifiable reasons to withdraw an infringement:
- appointment went overtime
- there was not much traffic around at the time of parking so thought it would not affect anyone
- did not think the vehicle was causing an obstruction; or
- did not know the parking local laws.

The City will only accept a request from the driver of the vehicle to which the infringement relates. Requests will not be accepted verbally by phone or in person at the Administration Centre.

Details of the infringement that need to be included in your correspondence are:

It is advisable to retain a copy for your own records until the matter is resolved.
As it is not practical for schools to provide enough parking for everyone, it is the driver’s responsibility to park their car legally and to help ease parking issues and keep the school’s students safe.
View this brochure to understand rules around school parking and help to keep our students safe.
