Parking fines and appeals

How to pay

You can pay or challenge your parking fine online


Parking fines are £60, although this drops to £30 if paid within 14 days.

Parking tickets

A parking ticket (penalty charge notice) can be given by a parking attendant where you have parked in breach of parking regulations. See how to avoid getting a parking ticket.

Parking attendants have no discretionary powers and therefore can't deal with any dispute or make any changes to the issuing of a parking ticket. Vehicles that breach parking regulations are also photographed.
