The requirement to enter number plate details from 1 July is the start of a community awareness program so that people can get used to entering this information before the new technology is fully implemented on the 1 December 2019.
This will also align to the 30-minute free parking trial scheduled to commence on 1 December 2019. This extended period allows time for our community to become familiar with the new system.
Monitoring of paid parking will continue to be based on the payment and display of paper tickets until 1 December, when the system becomes paperless.
Following a five-month community awareness program, from 1 December 2019 discretion will be applied by officers, as the system is implemented. Minor data input entry errors will be observed, and officers will use discretion in issuing infringements.
