If you've received a letter that says you are now within a parking zone, please do not apply for a permit until 2 weeks before the enforcement date as your property will not be included on the permit application system until then.

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).
