Parking Operations is a small but diverse team of dedicated people who manage parking across the Local Government Area.
Role of a Parking Officer
The role of our Parking Officers is to ensure that on street parking turnover is maximised and access is available to kerbside space for all stakeholders. City of Newcastle’s approach to parking reflects its commitment to safety and accessibility, with the role of our Parking Officers ensuring that this occurs.
Parking Officers provide information on parking, they enforce parking laws and operate City of Newcastle's off street parking facilities so that parking spaces are shared among users.
The level of the fine attached to a parking penalty notice issued by the City of Newcastle is determined by the NSW State Government via State Treasury and not determined by the City of Newcastle or its Officers.
