Civil Parking Enforcement
Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) means the local council, not the police, enforces parking contraventions. We manage our Civil Parking Enforcement using guidance from the Traffic Management Act 2004.
Council-employed Civil Enforcement Officers patrol Council-operated car parks and roads where there are parking controls. They issue Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) if a restriction is contravened.

Parking enforcement guidelines
To ensure a consistent approach to challenges and appeals against Penalty Charge Notices, we've produced a . This covers most of the circumstances that regularly occur in letters, representations or appeals to the independent adjudicator. It is not intended as a guide to processing Penalty Charge Notices, nor to replace knowledge of the regulations and the council's policies and practices. It is simply a reference manual for common situations that arise in letters, representations and appeals. Categories are in alphabetical order.
Mobile CCTV enforcement
The Traffic Management Act 2004 encourages us to publish an annual report on our enforcement activities.
The annual report explains how we manage parking and the services provided by the parking team.
