Toowoomba Regional Council has undertaken a review of Subordinate Local Law No. 5 (Parking) 2011. As a consequence of that review, Council has proposed to make Parking (Amendment) Subordinate Local Law (No.1) 2024.

All residents are urged to take advantage of this opportunity to comment on the proposed amending subordinate local law.

The purpose and general effect of the amending subordinate local law is to:

  • identify a part of the local government area of Council as a traffic area; and
  • identify areas which are declared to be an off-street regulated parking area; and
  • prescribe infringement notice penalty amounts for certain minor traffic offences.

The proposed subordinate local law would allow for increases in parking fines which are set as a deterrent and intended to encourage greater compliance by motorists and ensure all residents have access to parking across Toowoomba's CBD.

The proposed penalties would align Council with similar parking penalties in neighbouring city local governments and help Council recover enforcement costs.

The proposed amendments will also update maps to more accurately reflect defined traffic areas and off-street car parks that have changed since the existing Subordinate Local Law was adopted in 2011.

Written submissions in support of, or objecting to, the amending subordinate local law, are invited during the consultation period commencing on Saturday 15 June 2024 and ending on Friday, 19 July 2024.

Submissions must state:

  • the grounds of the submission; and
  • the facts and circumstances relied on in support of the grounds.

Written submissions can be mailed to:
