Statement by Parks Victoria - Albert Park Carparking Review Outcome
In February 2020 the Victorian Ombudsman released a report titled Investigation into three councils’ outsourcing of parking fine internal reviews. The ombudsman found there was administration of the infringements Act 2006 being performed contrary to law. The findings related to the outsourcing of reviews conducted on appeals to parking infringements. Upon hearing this, Parks Victoria reviewed how appeals are processed and identified deficiencies. Parks Victoria commenced processing all appeals internally on 13 March 2019.
The Ombudsman report recommended that appealed infringements issued from 2006 (commencement of the Act) up until changes to internal review process (13 March 2019 for Parks Victoria) be refunded. Parks Victoria will initiate a refund process to all known parties who appealed an infringement prior to 13 March 2019, had their appeal rejected and subsequently paid the infringement.
If you believe you are eligible for a refund after appealing an infringement at Albert Park Reserve, please contact Parks Victoria via firstname.lastname@example.org.
