Penalty Charge Notice (PCN)

Parking penalties issued by the council are called 'Penalty Charge Notices' (PCNs).

They are issued when drivers break parking rules or if drivers enter a bus lane (external link) during times of the day when restrictions are in operation. Penalty Charge Notices are also issued when a moving traffic rule (external link) has been broken.

I received my PCN by post

We will in certain situations send Penalty Charge Notices by post for parking contraventions where the Civil Enforcement Officer at the time could not place the notice to the windscreen of the vehicle.

Reasons for not being able to place the notice include:

  • the vehicle being driven away
  • the CEO was either verbally or physically prevented from doing so

You will also receive your PCN by post if the notice relates to a bus lane or moving traffic contravention.
