Council regulates parking within Ipswich through its local laws and state legislation to improve safety and convenience for our community and visitors to our city.

The Transport Operations (Road Use Management - Road Rules) Regulation 2009 and Local Law No.5 (Parking) 2013 govern our city and include specific restrictions for the parking of vehicles. Failure to comply with these parking regulations may result in penalties through the issue of notices and fines by Council.

If you have received an infringement notice (fine) from Council you have 28 days from the issue date to pay the fine or to request a review. If you believe that the fine has been issued in error, you do have the option to have the matter reviewed by Council.

A parking fine may be withdrawn for the following reasons:

  • Medical emergency: instances where an emergency situation contributed to the offence. A medical certificate is required to support a request to withdraw a fine on this basis.
  • Motor vehicle breakdown: vehicle breakdown occurred and reasonable actions were taken to minimise the risk to public safety and move the vehicle in a timely manner. Evidence such as a towing invoice or written statement from RACQ is required to support a request to withdraw a fine on this basis.
  • Error with parking signage: a statutory declaration signed by a Justice of the Peace describing the nature of the error and how that contributed to the offence is required to support a request to withdraw a fine on this basis.
  • Illegal / unauthorised / unknown use of vehicle: at the time of the offence the vehicle was being used illegally, being used by another person (nominated by you) or was sold or otherwise disposed of. A statutory declaration signed by a Justice of the Peace describing the circumstances and providing all of the details of the driver/new owner or relevant documentation (e.g. crime report/incident report number from the Queensland Police in the case of a stolen vehicle) to support a request to withdraw a fine on this basis.
