Owners of vehicles parked in unauthorised areas including visitor car parks and/or displaying an incorrect/invalid permit will receive a breach notice and be charged the enforcement breach fee. Parking in designated mobility spaces without the appropriate CCS permit, on yellow lines, in clear ways or on lawns/gardens will result in tow-away or a breach notice being issued. Repeat offending may result in vehicles being towed and/or clamped at the owner's risk and expense.
Reviews of breach notices or any penalties applied including refunds of towing/clamping fees will not be accepted on the grounds of ignorance of regulations, no legal parking space available, bad weather, late for class/work, permit not displayed properly, expired permit, failure to obtain permit/pay and display ticket and not obeying signage.
