Parking offences

Parking offences are civil, not criminal offences. Parking enforcement forms a part of our plan to improve road safety and increase traffic flow on Coventry's roads and improve how the city looks.

Anyone who breaks the rules around parking can be fined (by way of a penalty charge notice).

Penalty charge notices for parking offences

The penalty charge is £70 for serious parking offences and £50 for less serious offences. The penalty charge will be reduced by 50% to either £35 or £25 if it is paid within 14 days.

If you receive a parking ticket, it will show an offence code. See the list of offences and associated codes.
