Parking regulations aim to ensure cars are parked safely and considerately, as well as making sure everyone has a fair chance of getting a car park in the main retail areas.

Across the Central Hawke's Bay district, Council responds to complaints about abandoned vehicles, illegally parked vehicles, and safety issues related to parked vehicles; for example vehicles parked over driveways or fire hydrants. 

Council is not authorised to deal with issues on private property or in private car parks (such as supermarkets).

In the main townships of Waipukurau and Waipawa, the time limited parking is proactively monitored by our friendly compliance team to ensure everyone has access to parking to do their shopping and support our local businesses.

For details of available parking in our Waipukurau and Waipawa town centres see the Parking in Town Centres page  

For information on mobility parking see the Mobility Parking page  


Pay parking fines

Parking fines are generally required to be paid within 28 days. If your parking fine is not paid within 28 days of the ticket being issued, the registered owner of the vehicle will receive a reminder notice in the post. If the fine is not paid within 28 days of the reminder being issued, it will be lodged with the Courts. The fine, plus an administration cost, will then need to be paid directly to the Court (not to Council).

If you can't pay your fine before the due date, phone Council for advice on 06 857 8060 (24 hour telephone service).

 For more on parking tickets, including other ways to pay and the process for disputing parking tickets, see the Parking Tickets Page
