Report a vehicle blocking your dropped kerb

Report a parking offence

Our civil enforcement officers (CEOs) can visit the location and issue a penalty charge notice (PCN) to any vehicle that blocks any part of the flat section indicated by the red lines below.

Register your dropped kerb

If you regularly have vehicles blocking your dropped kerb, you can register it so that:

  • our CEOs can issue PCNs to any vehicles that obstruct some or all of it during their regular patrols
  • we can give you permission to park up to two vehicles across it. After registration all other vehicles parked across the kerb, even if they are owned by you or one of your visitors, will be liable for a PCN.

Register your dropped kerb

Please be aware that if you spot a vehicle blocking your dropped kerb after registration, you can still report it yourself rather than waiting for the next patrol.
