What is civil parking enforcement?

Civil parking enforcement is the name given to transfer of power from police to councils to enforce parking restrictions. This came into effect on 9 October 2017.     

Why civil parking enforcement is good

We will be able to enforce parking breaches like

  • Parking on double yellow lines 
  • Double parking or parking across dropped kerbs   
  • Parking in a residents parking space without a permit   
  • Overstaying parking in time-limited bays
  • Parking next to yellow lines and obstructing verges or pavements - making things safer for pedestrians and other vehicles 

Civil parking enforcement also brings together on and off-street parking enforcement. This means we can manage better parking schemes for residents and businesses.
