Parking

Parking bays are monitored throughout the shire. Fines may be issued to vehicles in breach of the road rules.

How to Appeal a Parking Fine

To request review of an infringement, complete the Infringement Review form and return it to the Council. You will need to include evidence in support of your comments.

Disabled Parking

To apply for a disabled parking label, complete the disabled parking form and return it to the Council. You will need your doctor to sign the form. Be sure to follow the conditions of use when using your label as failure may result in a fine. Interstate disabled parking labels may also be used in Baw Baw Shire; however, international disabled parking labels are not valid. To report a lost or stolen disabled parking label, sign a statutory declaration at any police station and return it to the Council.
