If you are reading this, chances are you have received a parking ticket. On this page you will find out how to pay for your ticket, and the process for writing explanation if you believe you should not have to pay.
If you pay your parking ticket promptly it may result in a discount (if noted on the ticket).
You can pay your parking ticket in a number of ways:
If you wish to appeal your parking ticket, please complete the on-line parking explanation form using the link, or visit the Council's main office in Ruataniwha Street, Waipawa.
Some examples of possible grounds for appeal are:
Some vehicles are exempt from being registered or warranted. If you have been ticketed by Council for not having a registration or warrant of fitness and the vehicle concerned is exempt, please let us know when completing the on-line parking explanation form. Find out more about the rules around the use of these vehicles.
Drivers are responsible for any fines they incur, whether they are driving their own car or someone else’s. If you receive a ticket for a traffic offence someone else committed while using your car, the ticket can be redirected to them if you provide the name and address of the driver, and the parking ticket number on the on-line parking explanation form.
If you have sold a vehicle and receive a parking ticket incurred by the new owner, advise Council of the name, address and date of birth of the vehicle purchaser, using the on-line parking explanation form, so the ticket can be redirected to them.
Find out more about your legal obligations when buying and selling a car.
If you receive a ticket for an infringement received during a time when your vehicle was reported stolen, you need to give details of the theft using the on-line parking explanation form and attach a copy of the police report of the incident.
