Charges

A penalty charge of £50 or £70 can be issued dependent upon the seriousness of the parking contravention. The charge issued may be determined in the following ways:

Lower charge
Parking in a place which is allowed but staying longer than the parking ticket you have paid for.

Higher charge
Parking in a place that is prohibited such as yellow lines.

A parking penalty will be reduced by 50% if the charge is paid within 14 days. If a parking penalty is not paid by the date stated the charge may increase by  50%. 

To avoid receiving a penalty charge notice, it is advisable to always comply with road markings/traffic signs and relevant conditions for use of car parks.

Please contact the Parking and Concessionary Fares team for further information about our parking enforcement rules.
