Parking FAQ's


I paid my parking fee in the meter but I got a parking ticket. Is this wrong?

You can receive a parking ticket for exceeding the time allowed for parking. Always check the parking signs for the time limit. It is a condition of parking to both pay the parking fee and keep within the timed limit.

Where do I pay my parking fine?

Payment of Parking Infringement Notices may be made at the Wangaratta Government Centre, 62-68 Ovens Street, Wangaratta via the following methods:
- Cash
- EFTPOS
- Money Order
- Bank or Personal Cheque
- Bankcard, Visa or Mastercard

Please note: Parking Infringements can be paid via telephone but are not able to be paid online.


Can you cancel my parking ticket?
Parking tickets are officially called Infringement Notices. How they are enforced is regulated by State law and is the same for all Councils. A parking ticket can be handed to you, left on your car's windscreen or you can be sent the ticket in the mail.

If you believe there is a good reason for you not to pay the fine, you can:

- Ask for the fine to be reviewed by stating your reasons in writing. The matter will then be heard by an Infringement Review Panel who meets monthly.


- Have the case heard by a court - you can tell the Council you want to dispute the fine before a magistrate. You will then receive a summons telling you the date, time and place of the hearing. If you succeed at the hearing, the fine will be dropped; but if you are not successful you will have to pay the fine, plus additional court and Council costs; or

- If you believe that you were not responsible for the vehicle at the time of the offence you can complete the relevant Owner Statement (see below) and return it to Council within 28 days of the date of the infringement.

All grievances must be put in writing and forwarded to the Rural City of Wangaratta, PO Box 238, Wangaratta 3676.
