Council takes over city centre parking enforcement on July 1


Newport City Council will take over responsibilty for parking enforcement, including the city centre, from July 1.

Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) means that the responsibility for enforcing parking restrictions will be the responsibility of the council rather than the Police.

CPE will apply throughout Newport from July 1

Parking restrictions will stay the same and Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) employed by the council will enforce all off-street car parks managed by the council, as well as on street parking restrictions such as residents parking schemes and double yellow lines.

If a vehicle is found to be parked unlawfully the CEOs will issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

Other traffic restrictions including dangerous parking, obstruction of the footway, and moving traffic offences will continue to be enforced by Gwent Police.
