Under the Monetary Penalties Enforcement Act 2005, you can request withdrawal of your infringement notice by applying to the issuing authority (Kingborough Council) who will then conduct a review of your infringement notice.
Please read the below information carefully to assist you in completing the application. You can only make one application for review. Please ensure you have included all the required information and documentation required before submitting your application (more information can be found in the application pack at the bottom of the page).
Circumstances which will NOT be considered for withdrawal
- Not leaving the area to which a permissive parking sign applied (Road Rule 369).
- Being new to or unfamiliar with the Kingborough municipality, the offence or particular legislation.
- Appointments or meetings running late.
- Not seeing or misreading a parking sign.
- Being unaware of Loading or Permit Zone requirements/restrictions.
- First offences
Circumstances which will be considered for withdrawal
- The infringement notice was issued ‘contrary to law’ – you believe you did not commit the offence.
- Exceptional circumstances (verifiable and unforeseen circumstances outside of your control).
- For example:
- A medical emergency – an injury/illness posing an immediate risk to a person’s life or long-term health.
- A mechanical breakdown
- For example:
- The infringement notice was issued to the incorrect person or vehicle. (You were not in the location or the incorrect registration was recorded.)
