Parking - Commercial Loading Zones
The legal use of commercial loading zones allows three categories of vehicles to use such zones for the legal maximum time period. These categories are:
Parking - Disabled Permits
- Any truck or utility built for the carrying of goods, or
- Any vehicle that is permanently sign-written (painted) or displays a magnetic or other sticker so as to clearly indicate to Council that the vehicle is being used in connection with a commercial business, or
- Any vehicle that has attached to it a commercial identification label.
Disabled Permit and applications are available from the Shire Offices at Highett Street, Mansfield.
To be eligible for a permit, the application form must be completed by your local medical practitioner and you must be a permanent resident of the Shire.
Unauthorised parking within a disabled zone will incur a $1525fine.
