All Fines From ‘City Of Sydney’ Council are Null and Void

Law News

All Fines From ‘City Of Sydney’ Council Are Null and Void. A fine is only payable when it meets the conditions of the law, not when the fine or the corporation handing it out contradicts the law. We’ve recently done some digging as a result of receiving a parking fine from infamous City Of Sydney.

‘City Of Sydney’ Council holds ABN (22 636 550 790) and trades as the Corporation ‘City of Sydney’. This directly conflicts with  Section 220 of the Local Government Act concerning the status of council in Australia. Infact ‘City Of Sydney’ has directors, shareholders and is run as a for profit Corporation, they do not have the public’s best interests.

The Law

Local Government Act Section 220 Legal status of a council
(1) A council is a body politic of the State with perpetual succession and the legal capacity and powers of an individual, both in and outside the State.
(2) A council is not a body corporate (including a corporation).
(3) A council does not have the status, privileges and immunities of the Crown (including the State and the Government of the State).
(4) A law of the State applies to and in respect of a council in the same way as it applies to and in respect of a body corporate (including a corporation).
We’ve since contacted the following people from City Of Sydney asking them to provide information as per below
  • Julie Lawson – Councillor Support Officer for Councillor John Mant – Office of the CEO
  • Kimon Karitakis – City Ranger Inspector/Tl – City Rangers
We asked them to provide:
  1. Validation and the actual accounting of the debt
  2. Evidence of their loss of revenue
  3. A signed invoice verifying their claim against me
  4. A copy of a contract signed by myself binding both parties
  5. Proof of your ownership of that particular part of the road
  6. Evidence of any injury or damage the vehicle caused

Both Julie Lawson and Kimon Karitakis failed to provide the requested information, this has resulted in their admission that City Of Sydney’s alleged fines are illegal and contrary to laws.

If you have received a fine from City Of Sydney you need to contact them within 3 days of receiving the fine. Advise City Of Sydney that you do not wish to contract with them and ask them to provide the information on the above 6 questions.

They may try and refer you to the Revenue NSW, and that’s purely because they cannot answer the questions and acknowledge that what they are doing is fraudulent. Let’s be clear that Revenue NSW are only responsible for the receipt and processing of fines, and enforcing the fine. City Of Sydney Council are the corporation that need to justify the fine and it’s validity.

If you are speaking to Revenue NSW you are talking to the wrong people and just wasting your time.

Since this article going live we’ve had phone calls and emails from City of Sydney asking for this article to be removed, in which we are not going to as this also further contradicts freedom of speech.

Recently we came across a hired goon working for City of Sydney handing out fines. We advised that we will arrest him for fraudulent activity if he continues. We then asked him what authority he has to be handing out fines. He showed us his uniform.

We replied with “a clown costume does not give you authority mate”, he then chose to leave the scene.

Happy Parking!

Letter to City of Sydney

Write a letter to City of Sydney with a copy of the fine and reference to it




City of Sydney
GPO Box 1591
Sydney NSW 2001

Date: <date of writing>

To City Of Sydney,

I’m writing in reference to contract <fine number>. (see attached)
I shall let you know that I do not wish to contract with the corporation ‘City of Sydney’.

I require the following information to be provided to myself in writing regarding the contract <fine number> within 7 days. This information should be posted and emailed to <address>, <email address>.

  • Validation and the actual accounting of the debt
  • Evidence of loss of revenue by ‘City of Sydney’ corporation
  • A signed invoice verifying the claim against me by ‘City of Sydney’ corporation
  • A copy of a contract signed by myself binding both parties
  • Proof of ‘City of Sydney’ corporation ownership of that particular part of the road
  • Evidence of any injury or damage the vehicle caused

Further more it has come to my attention that the ‘City of Sydney’ council holds ABN (22 636 550 790) and trades as the Corporation ‘City of Sydney’. This is a contradiction of the law. Particularly Section 220 of the Local Government Act concerning the status of council in Australia.

Local Government Act Section 220 Legal status of a council

(1) A council is a body politic of the State with perpetual succession and the legal capacity and powers of an individual, both in and outside the State.
(2) A council is not a body corporate (including a corporation).
(3) A council does not have the status, privileges and immunities of the Crown (including the State and the Government of the State).
(4) A law of the State applies to and in respect of a council in the same way as it applies to and in respect of a body corporate (including a corporation).

      Yes it has worked in the past, so much that City of Sydney asked us to take the article down.
