Car Park enforcement
10-minute grace period
Regulations allow a 10-minute grace period for motorists who overstay in a car park or bay. After this period, our enforcement officers can issue you with a parking fine.
Pay an off-street parking fine (car park)
To pay a parking fine you will need:
- the penalty charge notice (PCN) number (starting with FM or GU)
- the vehicle registration number
- a debit or credit card
You will receive a 50% discount on the amount you owe if you pay within 14 days of the PCN issue date.
Challenge an off-street parking fine (car park)
If you think a parking fine is incorrect, you can challenge it.
If you plan to challenge a fine, do not make a payment as payment is acceptance of liability.
The penalty charge notice (PCN) is a legal document. When you respond, it must be in writing, and we cannot discuss anything over the telephone.
