A parking fine is also know as a penalty charge notice (PCN). These are issued when your vehicle breaks parking regulations such as:

  • Parking on double yellow lines
  • Not displaying a valid pay and display ticket
  • Parking alongside a dropped kerb
  • Parking more than 50cm from the kerb.

East Hampshire District Council has powers to operate civil parking enforcement, and employs Civil Enforcement Officers to ensure parking schemes and restrictions are followed.

PCNs are issued under the Traffic Management Act 2004.
