I recently received a parking fine for not displaying a valid ticket at the car park at New Acton. I was parked in a New Acton (private) car park spot, not an ACT Government spot. The middle of the road has free two-hour ACT Government parking, while the part of the road adjacent to the Peppers Gallery Hotel is maintained by “New Acton Investments Ltd (or similar)” (according to the ticket machine).
This is an ACT Government issued parking fine.
Question. Can/does the the ACT Government enforce parking infringements in non-ACT Government parking spots? Does ‘New Acton Investments Ltd’ pay the ACT Government to enforce parking fines in their private parking spots?
Side note: Parking in these spots does not use an ACT Government parking machine, and i assume profits do not go to the ACT Government for essential schools/roads/hospitals/fireworks/owl statues.
