On and off street parking enforcement regulations

The Civil Parking Regulations, which are part of the Traffic Management Act 2004, have changed parking enforcement in England and Wales, providing motorists with a more consistent service across the country.

Motorists should be aware that under the regulations there are two levels of penalty charge (fines) depending on the severity of contravention. The higher tariff for more serious contraventions is £70, while the lower tariff for less serious contraventions is £50. Both tariffs will be discounted by 50 per cent if paid within 14 days.

In certain circumstances, there is no longer a need for a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) to be placed on a vehicle, or handed to a driver, in order for it to be properly served, as the rules allow the PCN to be sent by post to the registered keeper of the vehicle.

Allerdale Borough Council, in conjunction with its neighbouring authorities and Cumbria County Council, has agreed a standard set of penalty charge notice cancellation policies.
