Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) Banding


The Cabinet Member for the Environment will be asked to agree that a case is made to London Councils’ Traffic & Environment Committee to standardise Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) banding levels across the Borough.


Currently PCN charges are set at 2 rates, higher (band A) and lower (band B). Currently only Romford is in Band A so the same offences are charged at a higher rate than the rest of the Borough. 


Due to increases in parking pressure throughout the Borough, a review of the banding levels across the Borough is warranted to discourage drivers from illegally parking, better protecting kerb space for local residents, as well as increasing road safety and reducing traffic in the Borough.


If London Councils TEC agrees to the request, the case will then need agreement from the GLA and Secretary of State before being implemented. Public consultation may be required by the GLA or Secretary of State but it is not required in advance of the submission to TEC.
