About our Rangers

Bathurst Regional Council employs both animal and parking Rangers. 

Animal Rangers undertake a varied range of services (listed below) and provide coverage to the whole of the Local Government Area 365 days per year. 

Most restricted parking areas around the city are monitored by Council Parking Rangers. This includes on-street and shopping centre car parks and other Council owned car parks.  The parking Rangers investigate parking related complaints across the wider Council municipal area. For more information about Parking Rangers click here.
