Pregnant Staff Special Permit
A short-term special parking permit is available to pregnant staff from 30 weeks gestation onwards by visiting the Practice Nurse at Health and Counselling. If there is a problem prior to 30 weeks that necessitates a special parking permit, written evidence from a treating medical professional is required. These permits are only valid when displayed with an annual, semester permit or day ticket, but can be used in disabled parking bays.
If you are a staff member breastfeeding a child in the Child Care Centre, a special parking permit may be available through application to the Equal Opportunity Unit.
Both Parking Inspectors and Security Officers regularly patrol the University campus and Mark Oliphant Building (MOB) and issue Infringement Notices to vehicles found to be in breach of University’s By-Laws. The notices are usually placed around the windscreen wiper of the vehicle. The Infringement Notice is produced using a hand-held, ticket-issuing device or hand written notice. Do not park in No Standing or No Parking areas (avoid yellow hatched areas, or yellow lines), on verges, or in parking areas for which you don't have a valid permit. Parking areas are marked on the university map.
How to Pay for Infringements
Payments of Infringement Notices can be made in person at the Cashiers office, ground floor, Registry Building. A telephone payment may be made using your credit card (MasterCard or Visa) by telephoning 8201 3146 during office hours 9:00am - 5:00pm Monday to Friday (Public Holidays excepted). If you send payment by mail, remember that you must quote the expiation notice number and the vehicle registration number. Cheque and Money Orders should be made payable to "Flinders University" and should be addressed to:
GPO Box 2100
Adelaide SA 5001
Please Note: Never send cash through the internal mail or Australia Post mail
If you wish to dispute an offence informally, then you will need to fill in an Expiation Appeal Form (DOC 28KB) explaining any extenuating circumstances involved in the commission of the offence. These circumstances will then be taken into account before a notice is issued stating either that no further action will be taken or that the offence can be expiated by payment within 14 days of the date of the notice. Please see 2013 Infringement Notice Information (PDF 150KB) for some examples of explanations that will NOT be successful in disputing a fine.
Appeals against the issue of an Infringement Notice must be in writing, please fill out the Expiation Appeal Form (DOC 28KB)
The Infringement number, registration number and your postal address must be quoted, and your appeal should explain clearly but briefly why you believe the notice could be withdrawn, and should conclude with a request to that effect. Once a decision regarding the Appeal has been reached, a letter advising the outcome will be sent to the appellant. In the meantime, no further action will be taken.
Statutory Declaration (Vehicle Related Offences)
If you were served with the Formal Reminder Notice as the owner of an offending vehicle, you are taken to have committed the offence. However, your liability may be removed by providing a Statutory Declaration stating that the vehicle:
- Was being used illegally;
- Was being used by another person (nominated by you);
- Had been sold or otherwise disposed of.
Please forward one of the following statutory declarations to the Parking Office, otherwise you will be deemed to be responsible for the Infringement Notice.
If a permit is lost then a replacement permit must be purchased and will be charged at the full cost of the current fee. The 2013 Stat Dec - Lost permit (PDF 8KB) must be completed and presented at the Cashiers Office when purchasing a replacement permit. In the meantime a day ticket or short term ticket should be purchased to avoid being issued with an infringement notice.
