Byron Shire Council’s new pay parking scheme has been tendered to a private corporation – as too, the issuing of residential parking permits. Consequently, citizens requiring a residential parking permit are obliged to apply to the private corporation which won the tender and provide the private corporation with their bank/credit card details or Centrelink number.

Citizens would be well advised to read ‘the fine print’ of the conditions of obtaining a resident parking permit from the private corporation that won the tender – lest, in the attempt to obtain a permit, they inadvertently agree to have any parking fines issued by the private corporation deducted from bank/credit accounts or Centrelink payments.

Morgan (Ms), Brunswick Heads
