Find out about parking enforcement
Under the Traffic Management Act of 2004, we are authorised to enforce parking restrictions within the borough.
If a Civil Enforcement Officer has reasonable cause to believe that a vehicle has committed a parking contravention, they will issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). The notice must be affixed to the vehicle or handed to the person who appears to be in charge of the vehicle.
The notice will give full details of the contravention, vehicle registration and instructions on how to pay or challenge the PCN.
Vehicles may be parked with a virtual permit, so whilst it looks like it is parking in contravention, it may not be. Blue Badge holders are also exempt from some restrictions.
Please be aware that depending on other work commitments and duties, our parking operations team may not be able to respond straightaway.
