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.
