Reporting illegally parked vehicles
Residents’ Association councillors have received a number of complaints regarding problems caused by illegally parked vehicles. The Council have provided the following reply to our recent enquiry –
‘To ensure parking contraventions are attended to as soon as possible, requests for parking enforcement can be sent directly to the Enforcement Team via an online form – Report an illegally parked vehicle or by telephone on 01708 432 787 (option 6). The on-duty Enforcement Supervisor can be reached on 07946 738 495.
An available Civil Enforcement Officer can then be dispatched to the area of concern as soon as possible. Unfortunately, a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) cannot be issued retrospectively, nor upon third party evidence, as the contravention must be observed by the issuing officer.’
