Parking Information

Council Parking Inspectors are on duty during normal working hours and at selected times and locations outside of normal working hours to enforce parking controls.

Parking Complaints

You can report illegal parking online, contact us during office hours on 8256 0333, or send an email to playford@playford.sa.gov.au. 

It is easier for Council to follow up illegally parked vehicles if you provide the car registration, make and colour.

Council follows up illegally parked cars during business hours.

Parking Infringements 

Tickets or fines are officially called expiation notices. Expiation fees are set by the State Government and apply to all councils.

Expiation notices can be sent to you in the mail, handed to you or secured under your vehicle windscreen wiper blade.

If you have received a parking infringement, you will have 28 days to make full payment to Council. You can do this:

  • Online here and quote your Notice Number.
  • Over the phone on 8256 0333 or make a credit card payment on 1300 278 903 
  • In person at our Playford Civic Centre or - Stretton Centre (EFTPOS & cheque only at Stretton)
  • By mail money orders/cheques to - City of Playford, 12 Bishopstone Road, Davoren Park SA 5113

If payment isn’t received by the due date on your notice, a reminder will be sent with a new due date upon which additional fees apply.

Parking Expiation Review

If you have been wrongfully accussed of illegally parking, you must complete the Parking Expiation Review Form to assist in determining if the expiation notice is able to be withdrawn.

Evidence must be supplied to support your cliam.

Disabled Parking

For information on disabled parking permits, refer to www.sa.gov.au/disability parking permits.

Council does not issue disabled persons parking permits.

Parking Around Schools

Council actively monitors school parking areas to enforce parking zones and restrictions to ensure the safety of children and to maintain effective traffic flow during the busy drop off and pick up periods.

Parking appropriately when dropping off and collecting your children at school, ensures there is no danger to the children and helps to avoid traffic congestion around schools.

Why can’t I park my truck or bus on my property?

This may be because a vehicle parking on your property that weighs more than 3000 kilograms is considered development. This is because it is not considered to be ancillary to domestic use.

If you wish to park your vehicle of over 3000 kilograms on your property, you must lodge a development application to Council.  For more information, please contact the Council on 8256 0333 or email playford@playford.sa.gov.au.
