Civil Parking Enforcement

Leicestershire County Council is a member of The Joint Committee of England and Wales for the civil enforcement of Parking and Traffic Regulations Outside London (PATROL) and responsible for the enforcement of all on-street parking restrictions across the county.
We do this by working in conjunction with the District and Borough Councils who in turn are responsible for off-street parking restrictions. Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) formally known as Parking Attendants or Traffic Wardens can issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) formally known as a Parking Ticket.
The aim of Civil Parking Enforcement is to achieve better enforcement of parking. This will reduce the number of illegally parked vehicles which will in turn:
  • Reduce congestion and pollution.
  • Improve turnover of parking spaces with easier access to shops and services, leading to associated economic benefits.
  • Aid reliability of public transport journey times, making it more attractive to potential and existing users, in turn reducing reliance on the private car.
  • Improve access and improve reliability of response times for the emergency services.
  • Allow residents’ parking schemes to operate effectively.

Details of the existing service

  • Civil Enforcement Officers are on patrol around the streets and off-street car parks in Leicestershire.
  • Repair, repainting and renewal of traffic signs and road markings across the County.
  • A centralised administration service for penalty charge notices has been set up.
For more information on PCNs please see Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) Information page.
All monies generated will be used to run the service, with any surplus funding improvements to parking and general traffic management in the County
