Parking enforcement

Anyone who drives in Hull knows the problems caused by an irresponsible motorist parking in the wrong place. Parking enforcement enables us to manage parking in Hull and keep traffic on the move.

Penalty charge notices (parking tickets)

Penalty charge notices (PCN), or parking tickets, are issued by parking enforcement officers (CEOs). They are issued when a motorist has ignored parking restrictions or parked inappropriately.

You can also receive a PCN if you block or partly block a pedestrian dropped kerb crossing with a vehicle.

If you receive a FPT, you should consult the ticket for advice on how to appeal and make payment.
