Parking Contraventions

If there are waiting restrictions (yellow lines) on the road next to the pavement then a fine (Penalty Charge Notice) can be issued to any vehicle contravening the waiting restrictions. Waiting restrictions apply from the centre of the carriageway to the back of the pavement (building line).

If there are no waiting restrictions for example no yellow lines, we have no powers to take action. Further details of parking contraventions, and who is responsible for enforcement, can be found on the Greater Manchester Police website. They can be contacted via 101.

Parking adjacent to a dropped footway

Enforcement action can be taken at dropped footways even when there are no yellow lines or white H bar markings.

Parking adjacent to a dropped footway outside residential properties with the occupiers consent is specifically excluded.

The cost of a Penalty Charge Notice currently stands at £70, discounted to £35 if payment is received within 14 days of issue.
