If You Receive a Parking Infringement Notice
If you receive an Infringement Notice for a Stationary Vehicle Offence from Council you have 28 days in which to pay the fine. Fines may be paid at any Council office or by sending a cheque to: Tasman District Council, Private Bag 4, Richmond 7050.
If you do not pay the fine within this timeframe, the Infringement Notice will be sent through to the Ministry of Justice and further costs will be incurred. You will then be contacted by the District Court and ordered to pay both the fine and the Court costs to them.
Your rights of appeal are outlined on the reverse of the Infringement Notice and on the subsequent reminder.
