How to report a problem with on-street parking
We enforce on-street parking restrictions to improve road safety for all road users, to improve the flow of traffic, and to make sure emergency vehicles and public transport can travel without obstruction or delay.
If you would like to report a vehicle parked in contravention of parking restrictions, please phone our enforcement contractor NSL on 01823 219035 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are not able to take any action against parked vehicles which are causing an obstruction where no parking restriction applies. These vehicles can only be dealt with by the police, who you should contact using their non-emergency phone number – 101.
We can only serve Penalty Charge Notices to vehicles parked on pavements if there is a relevant parking restriction on the roadside adjacent to them.
We enforce a number of parking restrictions, including
Civil Enforcement Officers (traffic wardens) conduct daily patrols on most roads where parking restrictions apply. It is a driver’s responsibility to check their parking place for any restrictions and to ensure any ticket or permit is clearly and correctly displayed.
