Whitsunday Regional Council Mayor Jenny Whitney said Council wishes to remind everyone topurchase a parking ticket in a metered zone to avoid receiving a $113 parking infringement notice.
“Most of the metered Council parking in Airlie Beach, including the two lagoon car parks, Port ofAirlie and Abell Point Marina car parks are only $2 for the first 2 hours,” she said.
“Parking on Airlie Beach Main Street is free, but is limited to 1 hour.
“Parking at Shute Harbour lower car park is $2.50 for the first 2 hours and the upper car park is $3 for the first 4 hours.
“It’s much simpler and cheaper to purchase a cheap parking ticket rather than attract an expensive parking infringement notice,” she said.
Offences such as stopping an unauthorised vehicle in a loading zone, taxi zone or bus zone willattract an infringement notice of $227.00.
Council’s Local Laws No.5 (parking) 2014 – Section 9(1), sets Whitsunday Regional Councilparking infringement notices at 1 penalty unit, and 2 penalty units for stopping in a loading zone.
The Queensland Government determines the dollar amount for 1 penalty unit at $113.
