Parking Fines

Penalty infringement notices issued by North Sydney Council are no longer placed on offending vehicles.

Revenue NSW now issue penalty notice letters in place of on-vehicle infringement notices.

These letters are mailed to the registered owner of an infringed vehicle within 3 days of the recorded offence occurring.

This letter will provide more information to the vehicle owner showing options on how to manage the fine, pay the fine or lodge an appeal. Advice is also provided on how to access photographs and view the alleged offence.


To manage a fine, make a payment (options listed), request a review, or to view photographs of the offence, simply go to


You must pay the fine by the due/reminder date. Payment is made to Revenue NSW (Council DOES NOT accept payment of fines).

If you believe a fine was incorrectly issued or you are having trouble paying the penalty amount, you will need to contact Revenue NSW

Or write to:

Revenue NSW
PO Box 786
Strawberry Hills NSW 2012


North Sydney Council Rangers and Parking Officers are trained to assist members of the public with their requests for information and advice.

However, they cannot withdraw a notice once it has been issued or commenced.

Councils do not set or amend parking fine penalties.

Parking fines, their range and value, are set by legislation administered by the RMS and NSW Treasury, and collected by Revenue NSW.


Safe and Legal Parking Tips

  • Read the signs - regulated parking areas are clearly sign posted to advise motorist of parking requirements for that particular area.

  • Be aware of signage change - some timed zones may become Clearways, Transit Lanes or Bus Lanes.

  • Ask a Parking Officer - they are only too happy to provide assistance on advice, directions and general information about the North Sydney area.

  • Do not stop at anytime in a No Stopping area, Clearway or Bus Zone.

  • Only park in a Loading Zone if your vehicle is principally designed for the carrying of goods. Sedans are not permitted at any time.

  • Disabled Zones are designated for vehicles with a valid RMS Mobility Parking Scheme permit, which has to be displayed clearly on your vehicle.

  • Do not park within 10m of an intersection without traffic lights or 20m of an intersection with traffic lights unless signage indicates otherwise.
