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.
