The following guidelines will help you to park in a better way to avoid inconvenience, nuisance and danger to other road users and also prevent you from receiving fine(s) or facing legal action(s) as a result of inappropriate parking. These guidelines are also applicable to your visitors.

Please ensure that you:

  • do not block your neighbour's drive way or entrance to their private car park.
  • park only in a designated parking area if you are parking on a street outside your home.
  • do not park on any footpath or pavement, grass margin or a cycle lane.
  • do not park within 15 metres before or 5 metres after a pedestrian crossing.
  • do not park on double yellow lines, near a school entrance where there are yellow zigzag lines along the edge of the road.
  • do not park within 5 metres of a road junction unless parking spaces are clearly marked.
  • do not park at a corner, a bend, the brow of a hill or on a hump-back bridge.
  • do not park at an area marked "BUS" at a bus stop or "TAXIS" at a taxi rank.
  • do not park any large commercial vehicle, caravan, boat or mobile home on a regular basis on any public road or land owned by the council without a written permission.
  • do not use car parking areas, your driveway or any area near your home to carry out repairs to any vehicle.
