On street parking enforcement

Penalty charges

The person who owns the vehicle is responsible for all unpaid penalty charges. Penalty charges can now be issued at two levels

  • £70 for serious contraventions, for example, parking on yellow lines, on the markings outside of schools or in a disabled person's bay when not a disabled badge holder
  • £50 for less serious contraventions, for example, waiting for longer than permitted in a restricted waiting bay or parking after the time paid for in a pay and display car park

If you pay penalty charges within 14 days of issue you will get a 50% reduction.

Please note: Details of penalty charge notices will not show on the council's system on the day of issue. Please wait until the following day, after 9am, before trying to pay a notice.
