Infringements are set either by government legislation or council bylaws. For more information please visit: www.legislation.govt.nz. Infringements set by council bylaws can only be changed when the bylaw is reviewed. To find out more about bylaw infringements, go to our Bylaws page.
Payment of fines
You will need your notice number to pay an infringement. You can find the notice number printed at the top of the notice.
Infringement fees are set out in Council’s fees and charges. These charges are non-refundable.
You have 28 days to pay your infringement notice. After this time, we will send you a reminder. This will give you another 28 days. Fines that remain unpaid after this time will be passed to the Ministry of Justice for collection by the court. Once this has occurred, payment must be made to the Ministry of Justice.
If you have any queries or issues with paying your infringement, please contact us.
