Changes to parking fees and charges

Changes to parking fees and charges to take effect from 01 April 2022. Find more details here
 

What to do if you get a parking ticket

When a penalty charge notice is issued, you must either:

  • pay the charge before the end of 28 days
  • appeal the penalty charge notice

If the charge is paid within 14 days or 21 days for CCTV penalty charge notice, you'll receive a 50% discount.

If the penalty charge isn’t paid, you'll be sent a notice to owner (for a parking penalty) or an enforcement notice (for a bus lane penalty).

If you receive a notice to owner or enforcement notice

If you don't pay the charge, you'll be sent a charge certificate and the charge increases by 50%.

If you receive a charge certificate

If you don't pay the charge, it's registered as a debt in the County Court. The court fee will be added and a notice of debt registration will be sent.

If you receive a notice of debt registration

If you do nothing, the court will grant authority for a warrant to be issued. An Enforcement Agent will be asked to recover the debt and you'll be charged an additional fee.
