Illegal parking

25 May 2017

In response to a number of complaints from residents Randwick Council rangers just recently placed penalty notices on several illegally parked cars in Harvey Street.

While Council is unable to assist the Community Association in policing specific local by-laws (see below), Council rangers can and will police The Australian Road Rules and issue penalty notices when infringements occur.

Council has requested the following message on parking rules in general be made available to Prince Henry residents, and hopes that vehicle owners will start doing the right thing without the need for further penalty notices to be issued:

Illegal parking | Message from Randwick Council

Council wishes to remind all drivers not to park facing the wrong direction, near intersections, on nature strips or even across your own driveway. Parking within 10 metres of a pedestrian crossing is also not permitted. The Australian Road Rules about parking are designed with the safety and welfare of all road users in mind. Council urges all drivers to park legally and with care. Remembering to park in accordance with the road rules will also avoid unpleasant parking fines.

To find out how to report illegal parking to Council, go to the Report a problem page.
