Parking in Hastings District

Parking regulations aim to ensure cars are parked safely and considerately, as well as ensuring everyone has a fair chance of getting a car park in the city centre.

Parking in Hastings District is subject to time limits and fees. These vary and are determined according to the distance from the town centres.

Council is not authorised to deal with issues on private property or in private carparks (such as supermarkets).

Pay Parking Fines

Parking fines are generally required to be paid within 28 days. If your parking fine is not paid within 28 days of the ticket being issued, the vehicle holder will receive a reminder notice in the post. Then if the fine is not paid within 28 days of the reminder being issued, it will be lodged with the Courts. The fine, plus an administration cost, will then need to be paid directly to the Court (not to Council).

If you can't pay your fine before the due date, ask for the Parking Department at the Council for advice.

Discounts are available if you pay your ticket within 7 days, but only if stated on your ticket.

Driver/Owner Responsibility

Drivers are responsible for any fines they incur, whether they are driving their own car or someone else's. If you receive a ticket for a Stationary Vehicle Offence that someone else committed while using your car, the Council can redirect the ticket to them if you provide in writing their full name, current address of the driver, date of birth and the parking ticket number.
