Penalty Charge Notices (parking tickets)

We enforce parking restrictions on the street and in off-street council run car parks. Vinci Park Services carries out this task on our behalf.

Our Civil Enforcement Officers (previously called traffic wardens) issue tickets called ‘Penalty Charge Notices’ (PCNs) to motorists who have parked incorrectly. For example, where there are double yellow lines or when a pay and display ticket has not been purchased.

Penalty Charge Notices (parking tickets)

For more serious parking contraventions (e.g. you have parked in a disabled persons bay without displaying a disability badge or in a bus stop), the fine is £70.

  • If you pay within 14 days, the fine reduces to £35.

For less serious parking contraventions (e.g. you have parked in a space without a valid ticket or permit), the fine is £50.

  • If you pay within 14 days, the fine reduces to £25.
