We have recently seen an increase in the number of clients coming to us forced to find a secure space for their heavy vehicle. Despite having parked their trucks in suburban streets for years, the Gold Council now seems hell bent on issuing hefty fines and demands.
One client has parked his removals truck in the same spot for over 10 years and has never had any complaints from his neighbours. No matter how he pleaded and paid there was no changing the situation – with the parking inspector promising to come back weekly until the truck was removed….Word has it this is only going to increase with more and more fines to be issued.
and the final word from the Gold Coast City Council….
Heavy vehicle parking permit
The object of this local law is to ensure that heavy vehicle parking on residential premises does not detract in harm to human health or safety, and does not unreasonably detract from the desirable characteristics of the natural and built environment in which the heavy vehicle is parked.
