Pay a parking fine

About your parking fine

Parking fines

Parking tickets issued by the council are called Excess Charge Notices (ECN), or if issued after Thursday, 11 November 2021 Penalty Charge Notices (PCN).   

When you receive a ECN or PCN you must either:

  • Pay the parking fine on or before the end of the 28 day period as shown on the ECN or PCN, or
  • Request a review,or challenge the parking fine.

A 50 per cent reduction of the parking fine is applied in each case provided payment is received by CDC or the Authorised Agent (as indicated on the ECN or PCN) not later than the last day of the period of 14 days beginning with the date on which the ECN or PCN was served.
