Penalty Charge Notices

Penalty Charge Notices are issued for contravention of Parking Regulations.

Since the law changed in April of 2008, we have adopted a different system of Penalty Charges for parking contraventions. (The new legislation is called the Traffic Management Act 2004).

Two levels of Penalty Charges apply - one for “higher level” contraventions and one for "lower level" contraventions. In each band, there is a discount of 50% for payment within 14 days. The banded charges are as follows:
