Penalty Charge Notice
It's your responsibility to take into consideration any parking restrictions when parking your vehicle. If you park in a way that violates a parking restriction, you should expect to get a parking fine (Penalty Charge Notice).
If you have received a parking fine, you can view the evidence online to see the reason why you were issued this fine.

We run a two-tier parking penalty system, which is set by the Traffic Management Act, with penalties issued based on the seriousness of the offence.
- The higher charge is £70, reduced to £35 if you pay within 14 days.
- The lower charge is £50, reduced to £25 if you pay within 14 days.
Examples of getting a higher penalty parking ticket could be while parked at bus stops, pedestrian crossings, safety zones outside schools or on yellow lines. There are more.
Examples of getting a lower penalty parking ticket could be if you parked for longer than permitted in a free bay, parked with an expired pay and display ticket or not parked within the lines of a space. There are more of these too.
If you don't pay within 28 days from when you got the ticket this is what will happen:
- We will send you a Notice to Owner (NtO) document.
- If the notice remains unpaid, we will then send you a Charge Certificate, which increases the charge by 50%.
If the charge remains unpaid after these steps, we will register the debt at a County Court and this could then lead to a visit from a bailiff.
