NSW Police have overall responsibility for the enforcement of parking legislation within the State.
Council is jointly responsible with NSW Police for the enforcement of parking legislation within our local government area.
Public safety and equitable access to parking overarches Council’s role in enforcing the parking rules and managing traffic flow.
Council’s enforcement of the On-Street Parking Program concentrates on the time restricted CBD areas of Ballina, Lennox Head and Alstonville and is designed to facilitate ease of access to local businesses in high demand areas. Disability parking spaces are important to enable those with disabilities to park close to required facilities and particular attention is paid to these spaces to ensure compliance.
The safety of children and pedestrians around school zones is the primary aim of parking enforcement in school zones. Children may often behave unpredictably and enforcement during School Zone times is an important contribution towards the safety of those children.
Council’s School Zone Parking Program is a combination of education and enforcement and is conducted in all school zones within the Shire. Council regularly liaises with school officials to ensure that safety messages are conveyed to those driving children to school.
If you require any further information Council Rangers can provide assistance.
Parking fines are set by State legislation and administration and recovery is conducted by Revenue NSW. (REVNSW)
Enforcement commences with the issue of a Penalty Infringement Notice which alleges that an offence has occurred. You have rights of review and appeal which can be exercised by asking REVNSW for a review or requesting that the matter be referred to a Local Court.
Once a Penalty Infringement Notice has been issued Council will not entertain requests for review unless referred to Council by REVNSW. You have three choices to make once you have received a Penalty Infringement Notice.
Please note that Council cannot accept any fine payments.
You must pay the fine within 21 days of receipt. Methods of payment are listed on the back of the Penalty Infringement Notice and any further information can be obtained from the REVNSW website.
