Off-street and on-street parking enforcement regulations

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

Allerdale Borough Council is responsible for off-street parking enforcement in our car parks. Roads and highways (on-street parking) are enforced by Cumbria County Council .

Motorists should be aware that under the regulations there are two levels of Penalty Charge Notice (parking 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% 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.

The policy document which can be downloaded below is a guideline only and each case is always treated on its own merits.
