Parking Enforcement, Fines and Penalty Charge Notices

Information on how Broxtowe enforces parking restrictions, how parking fines are applied, and what to do if you think you have been incorrectly given a parking ticket.

Parking Enforcement

Illegal or dangerous parking on the street (i.e. on double or single yellow lines) or in car parks can cause serious problems for all road users, including pedestrians. 

The Council works with the National Parking Services and Nottinghamshire County Council to ensure people park safely throughout the Borough.

Where drivers act in contravention of road restrictions, i.e. on double or single yellow lines, in front of tactile dropped kerbs, etc.; the Council can act by giving a penalty charge notice.

If there are no restrictions in place, the Council cannot enforce parking issues.

Under these circumstances please contact:

  • The Police on 101 if the parking is extremely dangerous or obstructive.
  • Nottinghamshire County Council on 0300 500 8080 if you would like them to consider putting in yellow lines or residents parking schemes on a certain street or area.

Off-Street Parking Places Order 2020 Consultation

The Council wishes to introduce a new order which will affect how civil enforcement is taken for parking contraventions and how our car parks are run.

Find out more and complete the consultation.


Parking Fines and Penalty Charge Notices

A parking ticket (known as a Penalty Charge Notice) will be issued for all contraventions and will be subjected to the national differential charging policy of £70 (£35 where paid within 14 days; £105 if paid after service of charge certificate) for high level contraventions or £50 (£25 where paid within 14 days; £75 if paid after service of charge certificate) for lower level contraventions. The money collected from penalty charge notices issued will pay to run the enforcement service.
