So that motorists can have equitable access to the limited supply of on-street parking, Whitehorse City Council encourages a regular turnover of parking bays using a combination of different parking restrictions. To ensure compliance with the restrictions, we enforce the restrictions by issuing parking fines to non-compliant vehicles.

Parking services officers encourage voluntary compliance by motorists. This means that when a motorist is with their vehicle, they are typically given an opportunity to move before a parking fine is issued.

If you do not comply with a request made by a parking services officer within a reasonable time or your vehicle is illegally parked, you may receive a parking fine. You will need to pay the fine before the due day specified on the infringement notice, appeal the fine/infringement, or elect to have the matter heard at the Magistrates’ Court. Otherwise, you may incur further costs.

Penalty amounts

Fine amount vary depending on the offence. The penalty units attributable to a parking offence are set out in the Victorian Road Safety Road Rules (Vic) 2009. Penalty unit amounts are set in accordance with the Monetary Units Act 2004 (Vic) and are implemented by Whitehorse City Council resolution. Accordingly, Council cannot vary or reduce these penalty amounts.

Please note that the fine values are subject to annual increases.

How to avoid receiving a parking fine/infringement

Follow these simple tips to avoid receiving a fine/infringement:

  • Take the time to read the parking signs (there maybe more than one parking restriction that applies)
  • Think about how much time you’ll need when choosing a time restricted parking space
  • Park where the restrictions suit your needs
  • Park legally in unrestricted areas
  • Ensure your paid parking ticket is clearly displayed on your dashboard
  • Ensure your parking permit is clearly visible from outside the vehicle and the vehicle is parked in an area authorised by the permit (the permit is not valid if the details cannot be read from outside the vehicle).
