Parking ticket (PCN)

A parking ticket is also known as a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

You may receive a PCN if you park:

  • in areas where loading/unloading restrictions apply
  • or longer than the time paid for
  • in a resident's parking space without displaying a valid permit
  • in a reserved bay e.g. disabled bay, taxi rank unless authorised to do so
  • in a bus stop or bus lane during the prohibited hours
  • not wholly within a bay

Pay a Penalty Charge Notice

If you do park where you should not be you are likely to be issued with a PCN. The notice will explain how you can pay.

If you pay within 14 days you will only have to pay the discounted amount shown on the notice.
