Parking Enforcement

Civil Parking Patrols

We have a duty to ensure the free flow of traffic and safety of the public highway.

Civil Enforcement Officers patrol all car parks, parking permit zones and other areas in the borough where parking restrictions apply on a daily basis and any vehicle observed parked in contravention of the relevant Traffic Regulation Order will be issued a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) (parking ticket) of £50 or £70, depending on the offence.

The penalty charge is discounted by 50% if paid within 14 days.

You can pay or appeal your Penalty Charge Notice online.

*Please note, restrictions on the highway and within a parking permit zone remain enforceable all year round, including Bank Holidays.

Traffic Regulation Orders

Is a legal order that allows the Highway Authority (Kent County Council) to regulate the speed, movement and parking of vehicles.
