Penalty charge notices - parking, moving traffic and bus lane penalties

When you can get a penalty notice

The council is responsible for enforcing the borough’s parking and traffic regulations, including bus lanes and moving traffic enforcement. 

We do this through the use of civil enforcement officers and closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, for which we have a code of practice.

You only get a penalty notice if you break one of the regulations (known as a contravention code). It will tell you on the notice what code you have contravened.

Parking outside of Civil Enforcement Officer (CEO) control

The council’s parking team does not control parking on: 

  • Red routes. This is enforced by Transport for London and the Metropolitan Police Service traffic wardens

  • Housing estates. This is managed by the housing team 

  • Privately owned car parks and driveways
