Parking policies and guidelines

Peterborough City Council’s Parking Service is committed to enforcing parking regulations fairly without prejudice; to improving conditions for people living, working and visiting Peterborough. This is achieved through effective on-street parking enforcement reducing the dangers posed by illegal, inconsiderate and dangerous parking. Further benefits are improved access for the emergency services, local bus services and reductions in congestion.

Enforcement staff are called Parking Enforcement Officers (PEO).

Peterborough City Council have prepared the following policy guidance in respect of Decriminalised Parking Enforcement. The guidelines in this document are intended to inform the public and provide guidance to council employees working in the enforcement of Parking Service.

This is consistent with current best practice and aims to provide clarity, consistency and transparency within the enforcement process and compliance with the National Parking Adjudication Service.
