Parking fines (PCN)
Our civil enforcement officers patrol all parking restricted areas of the Runnymede borough and issue penalty charge notices to violators. This reduces dangerous parking, improves traffic flow and helps to keep designated disabled parking bays available for those who need them.
To avoid a parking ticket
- check the signs and lines where you park
- park within a permitted bay and make sure the whole vehicle is in the bay
- do not park on a single or double yellow line because other people have
- yellow lines and limited waiting bays apply on bank holidays too unless a sign indicates otherwise
- do not assume you can stop for a short time
- do not park beside a dropped kerb
- do not park where the road has been raised for pedestrians to cross or where there is tactile paving - this is to help people who cannot see well cross the road
- Parking restrictions, orders and plans are available to check on Surrey County Council website
The person who owns the vehicle is responsible for all unpaid penalty charges. Penalty charges can now 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.
Do not pay the charge if you want to challenge your parking fine. If the charge is paid the case will be closed.
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.
