PCN charges

Charges are set by a London-wide body called London Councils to ensure that charges are consistent throughout London.

There are two charge bands for PCNs that we issue:

  • Band A (£130 or £80 depending on how serious the parking contravention is considered to be) – Applies to the area north of the borough bounded by the south circular and the A3 to the west
  • Band B (£110 or £60 depending on how serious the parking contravention is considered to be) -Applies in the remainder of the borough

All PCNs issued for bus lane and moving traffic offences will be charged at the Band A higher rate of £130.

There is a 50% discount if payment of a PCN is received by us within 14 days.

  • If the charge is unpaid after 28 days, a Notice to Owner is sent to registered keeper of the vehicle and the full charge is payable
  • If the charge is unpaid, it increases by 50% upon issue of a Charge Certificate
  • If the charge is subsequently registered as a debt, a £8 court fee is also payable
  • If bailiffs are instructed to recover the debt, bailiff charges are also payable

For example

  • PCN: £80
  • Discounted to £40 if paid within 14 days
  • Increasing to £120 when a Charge Certificate is issued
  • Increasing to £128 when registered as a debt
