Parking Fines

Parking fines (infringement notices) are enforced by State Law. An infringement notice can be handed to you, placed on your windscreen or sent to you in the mail.

Failure to pay a parking fine or to take any other action within 28 days may result in further enforcement action and further costs being added.

Pay your parking fine

  • online Payments
  • in person at one of the Civic Centres
  • by mail to:
    Melton City Council
    PO Box 21
    Melton Vic 3337
    (Include your infringement notice and a cheque or money order for the full amount, made payable to Melton City Council.)

How do I apply for a payment plan?

You must apply in writing for a payment plan (an extension of time to pay).

Was not the driver at the time or request to have the matter heard and determined by Court?

If you are the registered owner of a vehicle and someone else was driving the vehicle at the time the infringement was issued you have an opportunity to nominate the person. Please complete the Nomination Statement(DOC, 241KB) part 1 if you were not the driver at the time the infringement was issued or part 2 to apply for the matter to be heard and determined in Court.

How do I appeal an infringement notice?

You must apply in writing to have an infringement notice reviewed. Please note each infringement notice can only be reviewed once.
