Why is Council introducing LPR?

Licence Plate Recognition greatly reduces the amount of time that parking officers need to spend on patrols.

This will free up our inspectors to focus on other parking-related matters such as:

  • Vehicles blocking drive ways
  • Vehicles parked illegally in disabled parking bays
  • Enquiries regarding regulated parking in the suburbs
  • Reviews of other areas to ensure future planning
  • Review and patrol of school zones

We currently receive an average of 125 parking-related complaints each month.

The long-term objective is to remove metered parking in the city and off-set this with more patrols to ensure motorists are adhering to time limits.
