What if I Can't Afford to Pay?

If you are experiencing financial hardship you may apply to Council to pay the penalty by a payment plan if you are a concession card holder, but must apply before the due date of the fine. Please note that the payment plan is an extension of the due date, no installment plans are offered.

Appeals to Council Against Parking Fines

If you believe the penalty notice has been issued in error, or you believe there is a problem with how the penalty notice was issued, you may appeal to Council and request an internal review of your case.

Having the Case Heard by the Magistrates' Court

You can choose to have your case dealt with in the Magistrates' Court by notifying Council in writing. Send correspondence to Parking and Local Laws, PO Box 58, Footscray 3011.

What if I Don't Pay or Take Any Action?

After 28 days a reminder letter will be sent and you will be required to pay the fine plus costs. If still unresolved, the matter may be referred to the Magistrates' Court resulting in a higher fee and additional costs.
