Parking enforcement

Parking enforcement

We are responsible for enforcing parking, loading and waiting restrictions in the borough.

The main reasons for parking enforcement are to:

  • encourage sensible and legal parking
  • reduce traffic congestion on our roads
  • make our roads safer for drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists and cyclists

  • improve the general environment
