Parking rules 

There are parking rules and along West End and charging for parking in the West End pay and display carpark. 

The 60 minute time limit for parking in front of businesses is enforced, with cars who overstay the limit given infringement notices. For the West End "pay by plate" carpark, you will need to know your registration number. The new meters accept EFTPOS and credit cards only (no cash). No ticket is issued. Cars overstaying their time limit will receive infringement notices.

Watch a video on how to use the "pay by plate" meters.
