Drivers who break parking regulations (either on the public highway or in one of our public car parks) will be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
Mansfield District Council forms part of the Notts Parking Partnership. Civil Enforcement Officers patrol throughout the district and cover on and off-street parking where there is an enforceable Traffic Regulation Order (TRO), including:
- car parks
- residential areas
- disabled bays
- permit-only areas
- all single and double yellow lines
- school markings, and
- bus lane and bus stop enforcement.
Parking fines and how to pay them
Parking fines, known as a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN), are issued when a driver parks a vehicle in breach of the regulations.
If you have received a PCN, please refer to the information on the reverse of the ticket for ways to pay or appeal. Alternatively you can find further information on Nottinghamshire County Council's website (opens in a new window), who deal with all parking fines and appeals.
Different legislation is used to issue a parking fine in private car parks. If you are issued in a private park you should deal directly with the company who issued the fine, such as Parking Eye at St Peters Retail Park. We have no power in these matters.
Nottinghamshire County Council is responsible for the control and regulation of all on-street parking issues, such as double yellow lines, no waiting restrictions etc. Any complaints/concerns regarding on-street parking should be directed to Nottinghamshire County Council (opens in a new window).
Areas that are not enforced by Civil Enforcement Officers, unless other restrictions exist, include:
- parking on dropped kerbs
- parking on pavements
- double parked vehicles
- parking at a junction
- moving traffic offences.
Obstruction and moving traffic offences may be dealt with by the Police.
