Penalty Charge Notices

On-street and off-street parking enforcement

West Berkshire Council operates civil parking enforcement in all council car parks and on-street restricted areas.

We operate parking enforcement to make sure residents and visitors to West Berkshire have adequate parking spaces, and to ensure the safe flow of traffic.
We undertake our enforcement activities in line with the Traffic Management Act 2004.

If you have been issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN):-

You can pay your Penalty Charge Notice (payment within 14 days is charged at discounted rate)
You can appeal against your Penalty Charge Notice

What will happen if I appeal and it's rejected?

If your appeal is rejected by West Berkshire Council you'll be re-offered the 14 day discount payment rate.

Should you wish to appeal further against the PCN, once you receive your Notice to Owner (NTO) you can submit formal representations in writing to our Parking Office.

If your representations are rejected you are entitled to take your case to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.
Further information on the process of a Penalty Charge Notice is available at Patrol.

Never ignore a Penalty Charge Notice as the unpaid amount will only increase over time - contact us for advice
