Enforcement – as of this Friday, we will be taking over Civil Parking Enforcement. Our newly-appointed Neighbourhood Enforcement Officers have been out in the past few weeks issuing warning notices to illegally parked cars. From Friday, they will be able to issue Fixed Penalty Notices, so this is just a reminder to park legally and considerately. More information here.
