Parking enforcement

We work closely with Derbyshire County Council to enforce parking restrictions in the District.

Civil enforcement officers (CEOs), which have replaced traditional traffic wardens, are responsible for enforcing:  

  • limited waiting bays
  • double/single yellow lines
  • on-street pay and display bays
  • residents' parking zones
  • Blue Badge bays
  • loading bays
  • bus stops
  • taxi bays
  • school keep clears
  • clearways
  • dropped kerb access (also police)
  • double parking (also police)
  • pedestrian crossings (also police)
  • car parks (with orders)

Moving traffic offences, such as contravention of an Access Only Order, remains a police responsibility as the CEOs do not have the power to stop vehicles.

CEOs do not have targets to meet in regard to the issuing of Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs). Money from fines is used to operate the service, with any surplus used to carry out parking and traffic management improvements
