Penalty Charge Notices (parking tickets)
We enforce parking restrictions on the street and in off-street council run car parks. Indigo Park Services UK Limited 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 more serious parking contraventions (for example - you have parked in a bus stop or on a double yellow line), the fine is £70.
- If you pay within 14 days, the fine reduces to £35.
For less serious parking contraventions (for example - you have parked in a bay with an expired pay and display ticket), the fine is £50.
- If you pay within 14 days, the fine reduces to £25.
Do not pay the parking ticket if you wish to challenge it.
If you challenge the parking ticket do not make a payment until you receive our response.
If you pay we will be unable to accept your challenge.
