University parking infringements are managed by the Hobart and Launceston City councils on behalf of the University.
Options for dealing with an Infringement Notice
If you are issued with an Infringement Notice, you can elect to:
- Pay the amount shown on the Notice within 14 days of the date of service of the Notice. Instructions on how to pay can be found on the Notice itself
- Apply in writing to the General Manager, City of Hobart or City of Launceston to enter into a payment arrangement. This must be done within 14 days of the date of service of the notice
- Appeal the Infringement in line with the process outlined below.
Infringements issued in relation to paid parking zones (voucher zones) are payable within 14 days of the date of issue. After 14 days, the amount payable will increase by the fee set out in the Schedule to the University By-laws. After the expiration of a further 14 days, recovery proceedings will commence and the amount payable will increase by the fee shown in the Schedule to the University By-laws.
Traffic Infringements are payable within 28 days of the date of issue. If payment has not been made, after the expiration of 28 days recovery proceedings will commence and the amount payable will increase by the fee shown in the Schedule to the University By-laws.
Note: after referral to the Director, Monetary Penalties Enforcement Service, additional costs may be added to the unpaid infringement amount. See the Schedule of fees in the University By-laws.
If you wish to lodge an appeal against your parking infringement notice, the process for doing so will depend on whether your vehicle was parked in a University or local council carpark at the time the infringement was issued.
For carparks controlled by local councils, access the relevant Council website for further information:
- City of Hobart - review of parking fines
- City of Launceston - parking fines
- Burnie City Council - parking by-laws
For University-operated carparks, you will need to lodge your appeal with Campus Services. For the avoidance of doubt, the following carparks are University controlled and operated:
- Sandy Bay campus
- Newnham campus
- West Park campus
- Webster carpark, Melville Street, Hobart CBD
- Medical Sciences Precinct (MSP) carpark, Liverpool Street, Hobart CBD
- Levels 1 and 3, Hobart Apartments carpark, Melville Street, Hobart CBD
- Centre for the Arts carpark, Evans Street, Hobart
Appeals must be forwarded to Campus Services using the online application for appeal against infringement form. You will need to provide full details and an explanation as to why you feel the infringement notice was incorrectly issued. The appeal must be received within five (5) days of infringement issue.
The University will not cancel infringement notices that have been issued in accordance with the University By-laws and/or the Terms and Conditions of permit issue.
Note that, if you have not paid the infringement penalty or lodged an appeal with Campus Services and/or the Infringement Notice has not been withdrawn, you will be taken to be convicted of the offence(s) set out in the Notice 28 days after the date of service of the Notice. If you are taken to be convicted, the monetary penalty may be enforced under the Monetary Penalties Enforcement Act 2005.
