If you have been issued with an infringement notice and believe that you have a legal defence, an exemption from the law, a reasonable excuse or there is an error on the infringement notice, you may appeal to have the infringement notice waived.
Residential parking permit
A residential parking permit is issued to persons who are required to park their vehicles in signed timed parking areas for longer than the allowed period. Examples would be volunteers at service clubs, libraries or residents who reside adjacent to schools.

Relevant local law
Local Law No. 7 (Parking) includes specific restrictions for the parking of vehicles, such as signposted 'No Stopping' zones, and time-restricted parking. It is also prohibited to park a vehicle on a footway or nature strip, as this causes danger to pedestrians and other motorists, as well as potentially causing damage to footways. It also includes restrictions on the parking of heavy vehicles or trucks.
Enquiries regarding heavy vehicle parking or Local Law 7 should be directed to Customer Service Branch on 07 3412 3412
