Parking Fine Payments

You have 28 days to pay your fine. After this time, a reminder letter will be set to the vehicle's owner and if the fine remains unpaid after a further 28 days, it will be passed for the Court for collection. At this stage an additional cost of $30 is added to the original fine and this can increase to $100 if the fine remains unpaid 28 days after you are requested to pay by the Court.

If the driver of the vehicle wishes to make an explanation regarding the infringement, this can be made to our office, in writing, within 28 days of receiving the notice.

It's important to note that our bank charges a convenience fee of 1.22% per transaction for the service. 

To make things easy please have your infringement notice handy.  You will need your infringement notice number and the registration number of the infringing vehicle that is shown on the notice.  Be certain to enter your email address correctly.

Payments made after 10.30pm New Zealand time will be processed the following business day,  so please allow plenty of time for processing your payment. If you leave things too late then your payment could be processed after the due date which may result in a late payment penalty.

Once the transaction is completed you will be given a reference number and a confirmation notification will be sent to your email for your records. Please note that  a receipt will not be provided.

Please note: We're not in a position to accept credit card payments by phone.

Payment of parking infringement via Internet/telephone Banking

If you wish to pay for an outstanding parking infringement using the internet, please bank into Account ANZ 010434 0180600 00.

Please include the notice/parking number of your ticket as the reference. This will ensure your payment is tracked.

You can confirm your payment has been received and the infringement cancelled by emailing parking@westernbay.govt.nz

Extended payment options

Payment of the notice is requested by the due date to avoid Court action.

Where cases of financial hardship are established by you, provision may be made by you in writing to seek an extended payment option where the fine is $150.00 or more.

Where no written request is made for such option within two months from the date of issue of the parking infringement notice, the matter will proceed to Court.

Where a request is received within the prescribed two months, an extension of time will be given for payment but this will not exceed a total of 9 months from the date of issue of the parking infringement notice.
