Parking enforcement

Our Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) patrol the borough to ensure that parking and waiting restrictions are being complied with.

A penalty charge notice (PCN) can be issued by the CEOs when a parking regulation is broken. A PCN requires payment of a penalty charge, but does not result in a criminal record or points on a driving licence.

We are a member of the Parking and Traffic Regulations Outside London (PATROL) Adjudication Joint Committee.
