Find out about parking rules in Hutt City and how to pay or appeal your parking ticket.
Reasons we issue parking tickets
We need to make sure the cars on our roads – and on the side of our roads – have a current Warrant of Fitness (WoF) and are where they should be.
We can issue you a parking ticket if you:
- don’t pay for your parking (this includes going over the parking time limit)
- overstay the time limit
- park unsafely – for example, on broken yellow lines or on the footpath/cycle lane or parked within 1 metre from the vehicle entrance or inconsiderate parking
- park a vehicle on a road with an expired warrant of fitness or licence label or certificate of fitness.
