London Parking and Traffic

Closed 23 Oct 2023

Opened 31 Jul 2023


London Councils is asking for your thoughts on the number of parking and traffic penalty charges issued on roads controlled by London Boroughs, including Havering Council.

London Councils’ Transport and Environment Committee is responsible for setting parking, bus lane and moving traffic penalty charges on borough roads.

Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) are issued when motorists do not follow parking, bus lane and moving traffic regulations. Not following the regulations can lead to congestion and have a negative impact on air quality. It also affects how other road users travel and access public transport services in London and can be dangerous.

The committee has not reviewed parking, bus lane and moving traffic penalty charges since 2010 and many of the current charges and additional fees have not changed since 2007.

The consultation will run for 12 weeks.
