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.

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.
