General Information

In order for Council to take action against vehicles that are parking without consent on private property, the property owner is required to enter into a Private Property Parking Agreement (PPPA) with the Council.

Please read all the conditions of the agreement and ensure you understand them prior to submitting your application. Application fees are non-refundable.

Application Fee (non-refundable)

The applicable fee in relation to registering a Private Property Parking agreement is $75 per registration.

Any infringement related revenue received by the Town does not offset this fee and is used to cover the costs of administering the infringements including, reminder and final demand notices and legal action where required.

Considering applications

On receipt of a PPPA application, the Town will contact the applicant and arrange for a property inspection to be carried out. The inspection covers a signage audit and other compliance considerations. The applicant will be required to be onsite to answer questions which may be relevant to the management of the agreement.

If you have any questions Officers are happy to discuss how agreements could work in general terms prior to submission of an application.

Agreements will only be entered into by the Town if we are sure that:

1.We can provide the service, and

2.That a PPPA is the most appropriate way to resolve the parking issues.

Renewals

Renewals are issued annually for the period 1 January to 31 December each year. The annual PPA renewal fee is $75.00.

Enforcement of a PPPA will not be undertaken if registration is not current.

Officer Attendance

Due to operational requirements, Infringement Notices will only be issued between the hours of 8.00 a.m. and 8.00 p.m. Monday to Friday subject to the availability of staff. All other days and times are subject to the discretion of the Town of Victoria Park.

Entering a PPPA with the Town of Victoria Park does not guarantee Officer Attendance. On receipt of a request to attend an Officer will attend as soon as practicable. 

Court Attendance

Most PPPA’s will require a representative from the site to be a witness [authorised complainant] to the offence for an attending Officer. They will need to be on-site when the officer attends. Should an infringement notice be contested in the Court of Petty Sessions, the authorised complainant(s) who witnessed the offence may be required to attend court as a witness. Costs for court attendance as a witness are not recoverable from the Town of Victoria Park.

FAQs

What is a "Private Property Parking Agreement"?

A Private Property Parking Agreements [PPPA] is a contract between the Town of Victoria Park and owners or occupiers of private property to deter illegal or unauthorised parking on private property.

Do I need a PPPA?

You may need a PPPA should unauthorised vehicles prevent owners, tenants, staff or customers from being able to park on your property.

The PPPA enables the provisions of the Vehicle Management Local Law to extend to private land where an authorised complainant identifies a vehicle parked in a parking facility or parking station on private land in contravention of the Town’s Parking Local Laws, they can request an authorised person from the Town to issue an infringement notice.

Once a PPPA is in place, parking officers can attend the area as part of a regular patrol or on request, and will encourage compliance with parking rules and regulations. Attendance will depend on the agreement between you and the Town.

What do you get for your money?

When a PPPA is in place, the Town has the ability to conduct parking patrols [on an agreed basis] on private land and infringe or warn any vehicles parked either:

a)Without permission, or

b)Not in accordance with permission. For example parked too long or outside marked bays

Town Officers will assist you to ensure that you know which signs need to be in place and where. We will work with you to try and develop a plan to manage your specific parking problems.

If I have a PPPA, can I organise for the Town to tow an abandoned vehicle off my property?

No. This is private property and even with a PPPA - Authorised officers from the Town are still not authorised to tow a vehicle. This becomes the responsibility of the property owner/s.
