Civil parking enforcement

You are here

Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) is legislation that enables local authorities to be responsible for enforcing parking restrictions instead of the police. It is covered by section 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004.

Ipswich Borough Council employs Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) to enforce the parking restrictions in operation. CEOs can issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) to a vehicle if it is parked in contravention of a parking restriction.
