Parking enforcement

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – parking

We have suspended all parking charges for NHS workers and other visiting staff carrying out vital work in relation to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Penalties will not be issued – nor enforced, if issued inadvertently – to anyone who parked safely without causing obstruction on crossings and zig-zags or restricted areas, if they can show they work for the NHS.

How to pay a penalty charge notice

If you park illegally you may be given a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). The charge imposed will be either £70 for a serious parking contravention or £50 for a less serious contravention.

You will get a 50% discount if you pay within 14 days, and a Civil Enforcement Officer issued the notice.

You can pay your PCN online if you have any of these credit or debit card types: Mastercard, Visa, Maestro, Visa Electron.
