Parking fines may be issued when a vehicle is parked in contravention of the regulations. The level of fine is dependent upon the severity of the contravention. We aim to make paying or appealing a fine as simple as possible.
A higher charge of £70 (reduced to £35 if paid within 14 days) will be made for unlawful parking which causes the most disruption and danger to road users e.g. parking on a yellow line.
A lesser charge, £50 - reduced to £25 if paid within 14 days - will apply to less serious parking contraventions such as overstaying a pay and display ticket.

Appeals must be received in writing and cannot be made by phone.
To appeal, you must either:
Please ensure that the notice number is stated on all correspondence.
The statutory grounds for appealing an incorrectly issued penalty charge notice are if:
If the Council rejects your challenge and payment is not received within a further 14 days, the owner of the vehicle will be sent a 'Notice to Owner' ('NTO') which would allow them 28 days to pay the full £70 or £50 or make formal representations to the Council.
If the Council rejects your representations and you are not satisfied, you may wish to make a formal appeal to an independent parking adjudicator with the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.
The decision reached by the Traffic Penalty Tribunal will be final and costs may be awarded against either party.
