Chelmsford City Council

Report a parking offence

We issue parking fines (PCN) to illegally parked vehicles.

If you think a vehicle is illegally parked, you can contact us to report it.

We do not investigate reports of vehicles parked on the pavement or on the verge, unless there is also a parking restriction. 

If the vehicle is causing an obstruction but there are no parking restrictions, you should report it to Essex Police online or by calling 101.

To report a parking offence, you will need:

  • your name and contact details
  • the location of the illegally parked vehicle
  • details of the illegally parked vehicle, including the registration number, make, model and colour

Once we receive your report, we will:

  • acknowledge your report within ten days of receiving it

  • visit the location of the illegally parked vehicle

If we have a mobile unit available, we will visit within two hours.

If we do not have a mobile unit available, we will visit within 72 hours.
