Council is responsible for the management of parking within its Local Government area through enforcement of the NSW Road Rules and the Local Government Act 1993.
Council has the responsibility to carry out a number of regulatory functions on behalf of the state government, one of those responsibilities is parking regulation. Parking regulation was transferred in 2002 to councils from the NSW Police by the NSW State Government.
Parking enforcement is designed to contribute to public safety though the minimisation of dangerous activities, management of traffic flow and to provide equitable access to available parking spaces.
