Annual Parking Report 2019 to 2020


There are two levels of charge for parking contraventions, the more serious contraventions such as parking on waiting restrictions are now charged at the higher level of £70 (£35 if paid within 14 days of issue). Less serious contraventions such as overstaying in an off street car park are charged at the lower level of £50 (£25 if paid within 14 days of issue). The table below shows each of those contraventions and how many have been issued during April 2019 to March 2020.

The Council's current collection rate is 63%. 873 of PCN's were cancelled; therefore around 12% are still being processed at the time of this report.
