Council's parking inspectors can enforce parking restrictions and timed parking.
These parking regulations help to:
- keep turnover of parking consistent in high activity areas, allowing all motorists an opportunity to park in high-demand parking bays
- deter people from parking in areas where they risk the safety of pedestrians or may prevent drivers from having a clear view of roads (especially in school zones and around school crossings)
- to allow access and movement for all vehicles.
Common parking concerns
Council is often contacted by residents concerned with illegal and unsafe parking.
Some common concerns reported include:
- Illegal and unsafe parking around schools
- Trucks parked in residential streets
- Vehicles parked on nature strips
- A parked vehicle blocking a driveway
- A parked vehicle which is facing towards oncoming traffic
- A vehicle parked too close to an intersection
- A parked vehicle blocking access for emergency vehicles or causing traffic delays.
