Parking tickets and enforcement


Parking offences

Community Enforcement Wardens are empowered to issue tickets — known as Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) - for parking offences.

These include:


  • parking in a restricted street (for example, where there are double yellow/single yellow lines)
  • parking for longer than permitted (for example where a time plate identifies the length of time permitted)
  • parking in a bus/taxi/loading bay
  • parking in a disabled bay and not displaying a blue badge
  • parking outwith a marked parking bay


  • wrong class of vehicle parked
  • parking outwith a marked parking bay
  • parking in a disabled persons parking bay without displaying a blue badge
  • parking for longer than four hours in a short stay car park
  • parking of a prohibited vehicle class in a car park
  • return within two hours to a short stay car park
  • parking in an area reserved for coaches
  • using car parks to sell vehicles, carry out any trading activities, or to transfer goods which are to be involved in trading activities
  • canvassing for political or electioneering purposes

Parking charges are currently suspended in all off-street car parks until further notice.

We also enforce all waiting and loading regulations and have the powers to uplift vehicles.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive and it remains the responsibility of the driver to check all signs, lines and restrictions in place when parking their vehicle.

Details on the PCNs include:

  • the registration details of the vehicle
  • details of the vehicle
  • the reason the ticket was issued
  • the time/date/location that the ticket was issued
  • details of how to pay or appeal

Police Scotland are responsible for enforcing reportable offences such as dangerous parking or obstruction and will issue tickets in such circumstances.
