Cardiff Council

What happens if I receive a PCN?

​​​​​The Council’s Civil Enforcement Officers patrol the City to deter drivers from committing parking contraventions and to keep Cardiff moving.

There are also mobile CCTV units which complement our on-street Officers in problem areas where traditional enforcement methods may not be appropriate. 

Any vehicles found to be parking in contravention of Cardiff’s parking regulations will be issued a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). 

The penalty will either be £50.00 or £70.00 depending on the type of contravention. This will be reduced by 50% if paid within 14 days. ​

If you receive a PCN then you must decide whether to pay the penalty or whether to appeal

What happens if I ignore the PCN?

If you ignore the PCN then the penalty will increase and the Council will apply to have the outstanding amount registered with the Traffic Enforcement Centre as a debt, which will then become recoverable as if it were payable under a county court order.

Further legal costs will be incurred.
