From Friday 31 January 2020, Telford and Wrekin are now responsible for civil parking enforcement or ‘CPE’. This means that it will be Telford & Wrekin Council, not the police, enforcing street parking restrictions across the borough. If you park illegally you will be subject to a fine called a penalty charge notice (or ‘PCN’) of £70 or £50 depending on the severity of the contravention. There’s a 50% discount for paying within 14 days.
CPE isn’t about making money for the Council. It’s about clearing the borough of illegal and inconsiderate parking. Our Neighbourhood Enforcement Officers work for Telford & Wrekin Council, not an external agency. They do not have ticketing targets and they do not get bonuses for issuing tickets.
As a school, we are constantly reminding parents that it is illegal for them to park on the yellow zigzag lines outside of school. It is unsafe and dangerous for our children and parents who are walking their children to school. Telford and Wrekin council will now fine you for parking on these lines and as a school we will fully support the council by reporting in repeat offenders.
If you do not wish to be offended when asked to move, do not park or drop off on the yellow zigzag lines.
