Services >> School Zones

School Zones

School Zones are in operation from 8am - 9.30am and 2.30pm - 4pm on all gazetted school days, including pupil free days.

Speed limits are 40km per hour in these zones. 

School Zone Parking

Council's school enforcement program operates for the safety of all children and families.

The aim of the Program is to minimise risks to children by parents and carers who choose to park illegally when picking up or dropping off during school starting and finishing times.
