If you are reading this, chances are you have received a parking ticket. On this page you will find out how to pay for your ticket, or to write an explanation if you believe you should not have to pay.

Pay your parking ticket

If you pay your parking ticket promptly it may result in a discount (if noted on the ticket). If your parking ticket is not paid within 28 days of the ticket being issued, the registered owner of the vehicle will receive a reminder notice in the post. If the fine is not paid within 28 days of the reminder being issued, it will be lodged with the Court. The fine, plus administration costs, will then need to be paid directly to the Court (not to Council).

You can pay your parking ticket in a number of ways:

  • On-line using this ink:

Online by credit card or internet banking

  •  In person at Hastings District Council's main office in Lyndon Rd, Hastings. Only the full amount can be paid using EFTPOS or cash. There are no installment options.


A table of the fines can be found on Council's Fees and charges page.

Appealing your parking ticket

If you wish to appeal your parking ticket, please complete the on-line parking explanation form using the link, or download and complete a printable copy of the form and deliver it to Council's  customer service centre in Lyndon Rd, Hastings, or post it to Hastings District Council, Private Bag 9002, Hastings 4156.


When reviewing your explanation, our Parking Team will take into consideration the law and general consistency of decisions.
