Illegal parking

There are some parking rules and restrictions in built up areas around the shire such as:

  • Timed parking
  • No parking zones, including school zones
  • Loading zones
  • Disability parking

Patrols by our parking officers are designed to reduce illegal parking as well as help ensure our community is safe, especially around school zones.

We patrol daily to encourage compliance with parking restrictions and fair access to parking for as many drivers as possible. 

If you’ve noticed an illegally parked vehicle report it to us and we'll attend as soon as possible.

If there is any danger to the public or public space, please call us immediately on 5366 7100
