Parking restrictions aim to manage road safety while ensuring parking spots can be shared by all road users.
Traffic and parking signage is standardised to ensure motorists are given clear and consistent information.
In busy areas, a variety of restrictions (some that only apply at certain times) allow safer, more efficient use of limited parking areas.
Council rangers enforce the parking restrictions in accordance with NSW Road Rules.
To ensure impartiality, transparency and consistency with issuing penalties and reviewing requests, councils across NSW use the State Debt Recovery Office (SDRO).
Gosford City Council receives relatively little revenue from parking fines once the enforcement costs are deducted.
Our aim is to improve road safety through both education and enforcement while ensuring parking spots can be shared by all road users.
You can easily avoid parking infringements and help improve road safety by observing parking restrictions and the road rules. Parking Restrictions Fact Sheet
