Civil parking enforcement

Knowsley Council is responsible for Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) in the borough.

This means that parking violations - such as parking on double yellow lines, grass verges or pavements, double parking or parking across dropped kerbs – are enforced by the council.

This helps to improve safety for pedestrians and drivers by preventing parked cars from obstructing roads and pavements.

It also helps to make better use of off-street parking locations and help to introduce new, more effective parking schemes for residents and businesses.

When parking your car, check traffic signs to be sure you are parking legally.

If you park where you shouldn’t, you risk receiving a Penalty Charge Notice of £50 or £70, reduced to £25 and £35 if paid within 14 days. The levels of penalty charges are set nationally. Take a look at the Guide to Parking Enforcement to find out more.
