Infringement Notices

​​​​​​​Payment of fines

​​You have 28 days to pay your Infringement Notice.  After this time, a reminder letter will be sent to the defendant and if the Infringement Notice remains unpaid after a further 28 days, it will be passed to the Court for collection.  At this stage an additional cost of $30 is added to the original Infringement Notice, which may increase again if the fine remains unpaid 28 days after you are requested to pay by the court​.

Below are the types of infringements that can be paid via this page:

  • Dog infringements
  • Litter infringements
  • Building infringements
  • Resource Management Act infringements

To make things easier, please have your Infringement notice number handy.

Payments made after 9.30pm New Zealand time will be processed the following business day,  so please allow plenty of time for processing your payment. If you leave things too late then your payment could be processed after the due date which may result in a late payment penalty.

Once the transaction is completed you will be given a reference number and a confirmation notification will be sent to your email for your records. ​Please note a receipt will not be provided.
