Civil Parking enforcement

As you will be aware we have been making preparations to transfer the responsibility of parking enforcement from the Police to the Council, the process of which is referred to as Civl Parking Enforcement.

Many of you will be aware that we have been working towards an implementation date in October. The transfer of power is reliant on the Department for Transport processing a statutory instrument through Parliament. The Council wrote to the Department for Transport (DfT) in August confirming that our preparations to introduce CPE would be complete for a start date of October. The DfT have subsequently advised us that due to other legislative priorities they cannot achieve this date. We continue to press the DfT to progress this matter as quickly as possible but the latest estimates for introduction are late December early January. We will be starting to ramp up communications to motorists advising them of changes from now until the start date
