EXPLANATORY STATEMENT – Parking Permit Fees Rule 2019

 

Issued by the Authority of the Assistant Minister for Regional Development and Territories

National Land (Road Transport) Ordinance 2014

Parking Permit Fees Rule 2019

Overview and Background

The National Land (Road Transport) Ordinance 2014 (‘the Ordinance’) provides the legislative framework for the management and enforcement of pay parking on National Land.

The Ordinance modifies the application of the ACT road transport and parking laws to permit the NCA Chief Executive to be responsible for the administration of pay parking on National Land.

Under ‘Part 3 Miscellaneous, section 11 Rule Making Power’ of the Ordinance, the Minister may make rules prescribing matters that are required, permitted, necessary or convenient for giving effect to the Ordinance.

The Parking Permit Fees Rule 2019 (‘the Rule’) sets out the fees for parking permits issued by the NCA Chief Executive under the Ordinance and section 64(2) of the Road Transport (Safety and Traffic Management) Regulation 2017 (ACT).

This rule is a legislative instrument for the purposes of the Legislation Act 2003 (Cth).

The rule commences on 1 July 2019. 

Consultation

The National Capital Authority, as responsible agency for National Land, undertook consultation with the relevant ACT agencies as well as affected members of the community as part of the broader consultation process undertaken in respect of the Ordinance in 2014. Consultation occurred with central agencies as part of the 2018-19 budget process.

Detailed provision by provision description of the Ordinance

Section 1 – Name of Rule

This section provides that the title of the Rule is the Parking Permit Fees Rule 2019.

Section 2 – Commencement

This section provides for the Rule to commence on 1 July 2019.

Section 3 – Repeal

This section provides that the Parking Permit Fees Rule 2018 is to be repealed.

Section 4 - Determination of fees

This section provides that the fee payable for a parking permit is the amount for that item in column 3 of schedule 1 that is effective from the date in column 3 of schedule 1.

Prior to the introduction of pay parking on 1 October 2014, it was agreed by the Australian Government that pricing would be set at the then market rate, based on the rates of nearby parking areas managed by the ACT government. This approach is consistent with the Resource Management Guide 302 – Australian Government Charging Framework.

This section provides for the fee listed in schedule 1 to be payable to the NCA chief executive by the applicant for the parking permit to which the application relates.
