Money raised

All councils must make sure their controlled parking zones (CPZs) are self-financing. Money is raised from:

  • income received through penalty charge notices (PCNs)
  • permit sales
  • pay and display income

Money received is used to maintain the signs and lines, and to provide regular enforcement by our civil enforcement officers (CEOs).
