Car parking fines

Penalty charge notices (PCNs)

If you do not display a valid parking ticket or permit in one of the Council's car parks or park in restricted areas, you could be issued with a penalty charge notice (PCN).

Payment of a PCN must be received within 28 days of the date of issue.  If payment is received within 14 days, a discounted rate of £25 or £35 depending on the contravention will be accepted.

Please note

Penalty charge notices issued for parking on double yellow lines (notices starting with XP) are dealt with by South Essex Parking Partnership.
