Appeal against a Fine

The City of Marion reviews a large number of expiation notices every year.

The below document has been developed to provide transparent information to the public about the review policies and practices of the City of Marion. These guidelines also assist a notice holder to understand the evidence required to support a review claim.

Expiation Notice Review Guidelines

How can I appeal against an expiation notice?

An application for review must be submitted in writing and can be submitted on one occasion only.

Appeals against expiation notices must be in writing using the Review of Decision Application Form.

These forms are available from Council upon request or can be downloaded below.

Once you have filled the form in, you can then submit your form via the My Marion Customer Portal

What if I wasn't the driver at the time of the offence?

If you were not the driver or you did not own the vehicle at the time of the offence, please complete and return the Parking Offence Nomination Form (see link below) with the original expiation so that it can be reissued.

If the form is not completed in full, we are unable to reissue the expiation. Therefore, the expiation will remain the responsibility of the current vehicle owner as per the Service SA (formally Motor Registration) database.

Parking Offence Nomination Form

What information do I need to provide?

You need to complete the Review of Decision Application Form and Statement of Appeal Form or Statutory Declaration. Please ensure you quote the expiation notice/ticket number/s, and vehicle registration number if known. Also, ensure your correspondence includes your full name and address and, if possible, a daytime telephone contact number.

Driver's licence number and date of birth are required before any appeal can be assessed, this also includes dog expiation appeals.

Where possible, provide substantiation, e.g. an RAA report of a breakdown or Disabled Person's Permit details. If in the case of a parking offence where you were not the driver at the time of the offence, please include a statutory declaration with the relevant details of the driver's name and address. Also include a brief outline of the reasons for the appeal on the statutory declaration.

When appealing dog expiation notices, please also provide relevant documentation to support your appeal.

How do I submit my appeal?

Please forward the completed documents via one of the following methods:

  • In person: Customer Service Centre, 245 Sturt Road Sturt SA 5047
  • Fax: 8375 6699
  • Post for Expiation Appeals only: City of Marion, PO Box 21 Park Holme South Australia 504
What happens next?

Upon receipt of your appeal, the expiation notice will be put 'on hold' pending an investigation. You will be advised by Council of the outcome once a decision has been made.

Once a Decision is made, it is final, the council will only review your expiation on one occasion only.

Please note that Council cannot consider an appeal once the matter has been transferred to the Fines Enforcement and Recovery Unit, which occurs once the due date on the reminder notice has expired.

Any enquiries after this stage will need to be referred to the Fines Enforcement and Recovery Unit by calling 1800 659 538.
